The hotel is situated within a very short walk of Darling Harbour and the CBD, a great position to enjoy Sydney from.
The hotel itself is very contemporary with a welcoming foyer,a bar and areas to sit and relax and is of a very high standard.
The rooms are very well appointed, the beds are large and very comfortable and the decor is superb, very contemporary and beautifully done, the showers are to die for, with both flush mounted 'rain' shower heads in the ceiling as well as hand held.
My only concern was that both the toilet and shower room were divided from the main room by a dividing wall but the shower and toilet itself are divided from this by frosted glass only through which you can be seen in silhouette, not what I want to see if someone is using the toilet.
All in all a superb hotel, great multi lingual staff, great locale, I would certainly stay here again.
