If you are visiting Sydney for holiday, the hotel is optimally located in the Rocks area. It is a stones throw from the opera house, harbour bridge and ferry terminals and a 10 minute walk to the shopping district. If staying on business, a hotel near Darling Harbour may be better.
We were upgraded and our room was huge. It did have a harbour view, though this was out of a smaller corner window so not as impressive as we anticipated but the size of room and facilities made up for this.
The hotel was low key and in no way pretentious for a 5 star hotel. Staff were nice and efficient, although we did get people knocking on our door multiple time to clean or check tvs, which was unnecessary.
Overall we are pleased that we chose this hotel and friends in city confirmed this was best choice for tourists.
