I have always wanted to stay at this hotel and finally got my chance. I'm not disappointed.
This was relatively big and well appointed. There was a bath tub besides a shower area. And the Westin bed (which is among the most comfortable hotel beds around). Definitely a room meant to be 5-star luxurious and comfortable. (My only disappointment with the room was the lack of slippers).
The setting was lovely. One could admire how the old building and the new building have been blended together, yet retaining their own character. (For someone who loves architecture, this hotel has a very uniquely beautiful setting). And with classical music playing in the background, I could think that even Mozart would have felt at home. My breakfast was nothing special, though. However, my greatest disappointment was that there is a separate charge of A$5 for an order of coffee. (You are encouraged to use their WMF coffee machines yourselves, and not bother the busy waiters with such trivial requests). Given that I'm already paying about A$40 for breakfast and still slapping me with an additional A$5 for a coffee order, this smacks of cheap-skate. For this, I would have to minus a star from this hotel.
The hotel is right at Martin Place in Sydney CBD so for those wanting to be staying in the heart of CBD, the location is very convenient.
Would I return to this hotel again? Yes but I won't have coffee (unless it's free with breakfast) and I would insist they provide me slippers in my room. Other than that, this hotel is very beautiful and luxurious.
