Visited this hotel in Sydney and will never forget it. Beautiful hotel, beautiful city and great location. Can't wait to return. Request a room overlooking Sydney Harbor from a high floor...amazing!

My wife and I stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel back in 2006 and were very impressed with the decorum, staff, and great location. The hotel room we stayed in had two double beds with a spectacular view of the city. For breakfast on the rooftop dinning is a must. The view depending on where you sit is spectacular. The lobby...

The room was large, clean and provided great amenities! View was decent and also had complimentary buffet breakfast and valet parking with out package. We also requested if late checkout was available and they offered checkout at 12pm complimentary which wasn't included in our package so that was quite thoughtful Great stay!

My wife and I pass through Sydney twice a year on our way to New Zealand and recently have discovered the Shangrila. We stay on the club floor as it has a breathtaking view. The check in is always very pleasant and easy and the location is great. Over the years we have tried several Sydney hotels. This is now... More

The Shangri La is wonderfully located right at the heart of historic Sydney and is walking distance to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay and the Rocks. Our check-in was quick and efficient and the room was well appointed with stunning views of the Opera House – no better way to wake up in Sydney! Breakfast was a lavish... More

This Shangri La lives up to its reputation as a world class hotel. The service upon arrival was very friendly. The hotel itself is very clean. The design of the lobby and restaurants are very welcoming. It was raining when I went, but the lobby had plenty of golf umbrellas for the guests. The upper level restaurant and bar have... More

We're in a Grand Harbour View Room with Horizon Club access. The room is large and comfortable. The bedroom is clean and comfortable, but the bathroom is starting to get a little tired. The shower cubicle has mould coming through on the tiles. The Horizon Club is open for breakfast and evening drinks. The breakfast has a good selection from... More
