Its funny how there are different views on this hotel. As a frequent traveler I wld suggest this is not a true 5 star hotel - more 4.5 star.
Why? Shower over bath. No soundproofing on balcony doors, lots of noise from above room and below 5th floor restaurant (don't stay on 6th floor), limited staff at check in, smallish bathrooms, smallish rooms, no desk lamp at work table. We had a conference rate at $220 so probably a 4 star price anyway so I shouldn't be complaining, right! I think flexible internet rate around $260 so that is probably not 5 Star luxury hotel pricing either so perhaps they just need to change their pitch and drop the "luxury" from their description and just stick to 5 star!
There were definitely some 5 star elements. The public area decor was excellent, the quality of the conference facilities and the food was excellent, the concierge some of the best i have come across in Sydney and the ground floor bar area buzzy and efficient.
