I went here for the Philippine Food Week and their buffet was really great. The service was prompt and the people serving us are really friendly and nice. The chef came out as well to greet and welcome us.

Great hotel to stay at. The staff actually look you in the eye, smile and care. The beds are comfy. Good location, near to the bridge, city, opera house etc. There is a mini supermarket near by if you need milk etc.

My wife and I spent two days to catch a show and celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have stayed here before which is why we chose to saty here again, the views are just perfect especially the grand harbour rooms, the buffet breakfast is a great way to start the day. the location is just about perfect.

Incredible views, gorgeous room, most comfortable bed ever, fabulous staff. You definitely get what you pay for here and it's worth every cent! Perfect hotel for a luxurious treat. Walking distance to Circular Quay and all it contains. Usual complaints about the food in the general area - The Rocks is your best bet.

We were celebrating a special occasion - so we booked a suite; if you are looking for a suite (that is bedroom, lounge room, large bathroom - 2 toilets) and you can afford it, go for it. Room numbers 7 - that is floor 12 and above, last numbers 7 - ie. 2007, 1907, 2507 etc..... Sydney is my city... More

This place is worth every sent spent, rooms are beautiful, staff are nothing short of amazing. Food is sensational, everything is done just right. This really is one of the best hotels I have stayed in while in Sydney. Spent 4 nights here and can honestly say you would be hard pressed to find me staying anywhere else from here... More

Ideally located with a short walk to Circular Quay and the Opera House, this property is an excellent choice. We chose a Deluxe City View room and it was well worth the few extra dollars to have a spectacular view of the Opera House. The room was well appointed and we appreciated the fact that there were two desks and... More

We love this hotel! We first stayed here in 2011 and were blown away by the fantastic experience we had in terms of luxury accommodation, service and attentive, wonderful staff. We came back to this hotel in September 2014, and were not disappointed. Our room was beautiful, bathroom oversized marble and pristine, and housekeeping brilliant. Breakfast was incredible - wide...

We paid around $300 for one night's stay. Gorgeous room with amazing view. Super comfy bed and the bathroom was very nice. Worth the money! Probably one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in. We stayed in some crappy places in aus so this was a nice treat.
