I first visited the Amora prob 10 years ago. Back then it was a schmick hotel - new! fast forward many years later, it still is a very plush hotel, but the signs of an ageing building can be seen. The room: spacious room, with a very comfortable bed. no question! they also have a pillow menu that includes a chiropractic pillow, a butterfly pillow, a microfibre and a duck down and others to choose from. The TV was located adjacent to the bed. so if you wanted to watch TV, you needed to turn your head 90 degs (in my case, to the RIGHT). Not so cool. It gets very uncomfortable very quickly. Other highlights: a very spacious bathroom. Almost art deco in style with french doors and a clean black and white tile scheme. well lit too! What wasn't so good: the toilet cistern would hiss for a very long time after flushing. that hissing sound emanates thru the room. slightly annoying.... the blinds on the window also needs replacing. It's a 5 star hotel with very very very badly fraying blinds.... seriously, you can spend a few dollars to change it and make a difference. Bottle 'hotel water' wasn't free either. $6 a bottle from memory. The room was also quite dim. Bed side lights were adequate for spot lighting the area, but not very good overall lighting for the room.
A word on the reception, check-in process - rather emotional less and lacking warmth. Don't get me wrong, am not after a hug, but for those that would have travelled long distances to get to Sydney, a smile and friendly disposition wouldn't hurt. Plus, smiling doesn't cost!
The hotel itself is located in a very good location. So it's not right in the shopping precinct, but it's a short walk and close to circular quay.
