My husband and I spent our 2 wedding anniversary at the Four Seasons Sydney. Oh wow, the location can't get any better! It is right next to the Circular Quay with unobstructed views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The Rocks neighborhood is within 5 minutes walk so there are lots of restaurant and shopping options. The Royal Botanical Gardens are about 10 minutes walk away for some quiet time in the city.
Sydney is expensive, and so is the Four Seasons! We had originally booked a city view room, but since it was our anniversary, we chose to upgrade to the harbour view room. We were blown away when we walked into our room and looked out the window. The night view is just fantastic if you take a look at the pictures I included in this review. We went up to the Sydney Sky Tower and we both agree that the view from our room topped it by far. We couldn't even see the Opera House from the Sky Tower because of all the buildings in the way. So if you are going to stay at this hotel, you might as well upgrade to see the harbour, or else you can save money and stay in any other hotel in Sydney for a lot less money.
The hotel sent us a nice reserved bottle of Champagne for our anniversary and wrote personalized notes to us. Definitely a nice touch!
The one piece of warning I have for travelers using the concierge desk is to avoid Huey like the plague. The other people at the concierge were very knowledgeable and helpful. The two times I talked to Huey, I felt like he had no clue what he was talking about. For example, I told him I wanted romantic harbour view dinner for our anniversary. He said that Darling Harbour was too commercialized and so he sent us to Wallomooloo area. We ended up at this pier with no sight of the harbour and instead had views of docked boats. On top of that, the restaurant he recommended had horrible service. The other time I talked to him, I asked him for the exact location of the Japanese garden within the Royal Botanical Gardens. He promptly responded by saying there's no Japanese garden there. When I walked through the garden, I ended up seeing it and I felt like he should not be a representative of the Four Seasons.
High speed internet is VERY expensive here. I suggest you find a internet cafe nearby and not spend the outrageous fees at the Four Seasons.
