Rooms and facilities are well kept and clean. Staff are friendly. Breakfast options are varied and very tasty. The hotel makes it very easy for one to carry about their lives in. I probably would return, but I'd like to check others out too.

We stayed in an executive suite with bridge and opera house views which was amazing. The ensuite was huge with a separate toilet and also a powder room off the lounge area. I loved the electric curtains in the bathroom and the bath with great views. The bed was really comfortable and everything was beautifully clean. We had access to... More

The hotel is gated and guarded. In the lobby, live music is offered and the staff is really friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are large, elegant and well-equipped. Business center, spa, pool and fitness center are excellent. A great hotel! Breakfast overpriced!

Fabulous service. The hotel held my bag for 10 days until I return to Sydney for the second have of my vacation. My room was spacious and had a lovely view of the opera and harbor. I particularly liked the lighting system and bathroom, which had a large shower and separate tub. The maid and turn down service were wonderfully... More

Located at The Rocks, this hotel has a spectacular standard room. We certainly weren't paying top dollar and got a great room (excellent bed & linens, huge bathroom). The bar is unmissable--great cocktails and views of the harbour and city.

this hotel is in a great location, the staff go out of their way to help, and I couldn't fault the service at all. Excellent. The room service is prompt and well priced. Local takeaways deliver to the hotel, and even the local pharmacy was able to take a phone order and deliver to the hotel. The views are stunning... More

Beds were comfortable and the room is equipped with a DVD , music player, safe, mini bar, coffee and tea equipment, iron, hair dryer-... More

We spent here 4 nights in a corporate event. On the last night we went for a drink at the bar on the top floor. On the way down the elevator stopped as "overloaded" at the 26th floor. There were 14 of us in an elevator that is meant to carry 20. The shocking part is that hotel staff (Nick... More

This hotel was very nice and luxurious. But, we did not know that it sits on top of a hill. I have mobility problems due to arthritis and had I have known ahead of time that walking would be up and down hills I would not have picked this hotel.
