My lovely lady and I have stayed here before and it just gets better and better. They probably have the best staff training in Sydney and probably Australia as all of the staff are on the same page "what can I do to make this customers stay enjoyable'. From the moment you get out of the taxi when a porter leaps forward to help, then the greetings from the concierge to the reception desk - all of them will make you feel welcome. Then go to The Bar and the Restaurant and this level of service just gets better.
We stayed two nights but had breakfast at Circular Quay. A 5 minute walk gets you to the ferries and the opera House, the station is close by and buses go everywhere. Don't be cheap and come from the airport by train - the hill with cases is hard work. Txi was around $30 from the airport but depends on traffic.
Try the pool and sauna especially the pool after dark with its lights and view. The room is spacious and appointed with strong furniture. The water pressure in the bath is wicked so be careful or you will burn yourself as it shoots out. Plenty of room to move around without tripping over cases.
We love it and will be back again in My 2011.
