Spent Friday & Saturday nights in an Executive Grand Harbour Suite on the 17th floor. The suite gave us spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks & Observatory Hill. The king bed was very comfortable & the air conditioning perfect for a good nights sleep. The bathroom was huge - I loved the separate dressing table for ease of make-up, doing hair etc which left the vanity free my husband to use. The window bath was enjoyable. The separate shower had great pressure. The lounge room was quite large and furnished very comfortably. Second toilet was convenient.
The suite also entitled us to the use of the Horizon Club (a quiet retreat with amazing views where you can have refreshments, borrow a board game, read the paper or just chill out). You could either have breakfast in the Horizon Club or at Cafe Mix on the 1st floor. We tried both - both were good - much larger choice on the 1st floor but Horizon Club was plentiful (juice, cereal, toast, eggs, fruit, pastries & more). Pop in from 6pm-8pm & enjoy a wine, beer or spirits.
If you're staying on a Friday or Saturday night, the seafood buffet at Cafe Mix is not to be missed. More than just seafood too & everything was so fresh.
We had in-room dining & it would have to be the best in-room meal we have ever had (the seafood taster plate was divine). The meal arrived (nice & hot) about 5 minutes earlier than promised & it was beautifully presented. Trolley/tray removal was very efficient.
Check-in & check-out were a breeze.
All the staff we encountered were happy, friendly, approachable & professional.
