Yes it's true the queen room is not huge, but bigger than London or NY for sure. I didn't find that a problem. But the rest of it is just killer. The lobby and general interior design and decoration are just amazing. The lobby is a place you'll just love sitting in and sipping a cocktail just enjoying the space. The room is very well appointed with good quality throughout. They haven't skimped on anything. The iPad is very helpful and all the linen and soaps etc are serious quality. The location is very good too tho be aware it is a serious 30 min walk to get to Circular Quay or The Rocks. There is however a close ferry stop and a light rail station. But the Darling harbor area is becoming quite a hip joint with some nice restaurants and bars so you might even prefer that to the madness of the center of town. My very only complaint is the internet system which gives you a log in which only lasts a day and then you have to call to get a new one. Mildly annoying but certainly a tiny complaint for a place this awesome!
