This hotel is only two blocks from the Circular Quay rail station which is a major plus as you simply walk from the train from the airport. When you buy your train ticket at the airport and are staying in Sydney for a few days, ask for the weekly pass as it costs only $43.00 and allows you unlimited train, bus and ferry rides for a week. (the cost might have gone up in the last few days}
Having never been to Sydney before, it's a great place to visit, but be prepared to walk a lot, which is really pretty good as there is a lot to see in the downtown/Rocks areas.
Now, for the Hotel, it is very nice, with nice rooms, a great view over the harbor, opera house and bridge. When I made my reservation, I requested a room on the Exectitive floor overlooking the opera house which was acknowledged. When checking in, I was offered a room overlooking the city view on a different floor. It was like they didn't get my memo, until I asked them, which they then changed my room to the 20th floor which did have an Opera House view. I did get a very nice note from their customer service manager on duty with a gift for not meeting my request which was nice, but could have been avoided had they met their commitment. Other wise, I would have given them a excellent rating.
