This is undoubtedly Australia's finest hotel, and definitely the best I've ever stayed at. I had such a great stay here I'm not quite sure where to start.
It's very difficult to get luxury service right: you need to be friendly without being overly casual, yet confident without coming across as aloof or snobbish. I'm not sure how they did it, but every staff member I met here managed to execute it to perfection, from the bell desk to the front desk to the concierge and restaurant. Special thanks especially to Victoria at the concierge, Kaisa at the restaurant, and Ramneek and Victoria at the front desk.
The hotel is newly renovated, and everything is spotless. The furniture is clearly of extremely high quality, unlike the cheap chip wood tables that you get at lesser properties. The wine and water glasses are also probably made from crystal or something, judging from the look of it. It's clear a lot of thought had gone into the room with great attention to detail, down to the thinner Onsen-type towel placed next to the bathtub and the aboriginal art pieces in the room.
And the view is unbeatable. This is the only hotel in Sydney where you get a direct view of the opera house. The weather was awful during our five-day stay in the city, but we were secretly happy as we then had an excuse to just stay in the room and enjoy the view. Unlike other luxury hotels where there are usually others on the same street, this is the only hotel where you get a head-on view of the opera house. There are no equals here.
Breakfast is at the dining room, which also faced the opera house. The food was of high quality, but if I could nitpick, I would say that the menus at the park hyatt Washington and andaz fifth avenue are way more creative. This restaurant was a lot more traditional, with just the usual eggs and French toast offerings.
Just one last point: If you're considering paying for an upgrade to the opera deluxe room, do it. It's worth it.
