The ShangriLa Hotel is ideally situated within walking distance to Circular Quay transport links, cafes, restaurants, entertainment, the Rocks, the Opera House and Sydney's CBD. The hotel staff were professional, accommodating and friendly. My room was quite decadent and elegantly furnished with a stylish classic decor and a rich exotic colour palette. A fully stocked mini bar is a plus as is a personal welcome note on the TV screen. The room was clean and very comfortable, I had a very restful sleep. The fully tiled, 4 piece bathroom, complete with gold fixtures, was spacious, with a spa like feel. White linen, lovely range of guest toiletries, bathrobes and slippers added that touch of luxury. I loved the leather window seat, a sun trap to enjoy a cuppa and check my emails before breakfast. A wonderful array of breakfast treats were offered from fruit and yoghurt to fully cooked english. Check out was at 11 am, a very civilised hour and the room was reasonably priced for a nights stay. Rating in a word, "Excellence"
Only one negative. Staff turned down my bed and cleaned my bathroom while I was out having dinner with friends. It was a lovely gesture but no one told me. I knew someone had been in my room when I opened the door, things had been moved, my blood ran cold and it quite spoilt my fun night out.
Next time I'll know to expect house keeping during the evening, I think I'll book a front room with Harbour bridge and Opera house views and I'd really love to try their reputable skyline restaurant! Something to look forward too :)
