We were booked into a 'shoebox' room with a queen bed, however when we arrived we had a room with a king bed. The room was still tiny but did have everything that was essential for a short stay in the city, especially as not much time was spent in the room. Everything was lovely and clean; I thought the bed comfy, but hubby wasn't as convinced. The linens were luxurious. The location was very good, a short walk to darling harbour. A healthy walk to Dixon street. Parking was plentiful and only across the road. The room was a bit on the small side if u were staying longer than a couple of nights. Plenty of good restaurants nearby. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, so can't comment on this.
