Everyone raves about the location for good reason; you don't have to spend time getting to the circular quay, which (for us) was the heartbeat of Sydney; the departure point for ferries, location of the opera and Botanical Gardens are close-by. The Rocks is also a very cool area with great restaurants; take the free late afternoon Rocks tour upon your arrival so you can become quickly oriented.
Loved the sense of history about the hotel and the staff (thank-you Maxine!) was at the ready to please, help with bookings and insure your comfort. Speaking of comfort, one thing I did not realize were some of the rooms are not air-conditioned. Our was not but we were able to switch rooms after a couple of days, with an "upgrade" in cost but in cities, air-conditioning when temps are above 75 during the day is important to us.
