the hotel can't be faulted as such. large comfortable clean room with soft bed.
but we decided to get to the hotel via light rail because the parking fees quoted to park at the hotel is $45 per day which is quite an outrageous fee in my view considering the vast amount of car spaces in various car parks around the hotel. (there is a public car park right next door that charges $15 overnight stay but the hotel failed to tell us about it). so to get to the hotel form the light rail station, you have to walk inside a covered car park which is badly lit and unpleasant to walk through and there seems no other option if you want to get to the hotel via light rail.
the extra charge for using credit card to pay your hotel bill is not a welcome extra though not a large amount of money.
Pyrmont view rooms are perfectly adequate.
