Based in The Rocks, Sydney, the Shangri La is really well positioned. It's walking distance to Sydney Harbour and Sydney Bridge, with a beautiful view of both from the Blu bar on the 36th floor. In fact, the view of Sydney from the rooms is also spectacular especially at sunrise and sunset. The rooms are well appointed with all the things you may need - iron and Ironing board, fully stocked bar fridge, and a really nice bathroom.
The staff were exceptionally friendly everywhere we went. A good selection is available at breakfast with the daily newspapers on hand if you feel the need catch up on the local news.
The only minor hiccup was it took quite a bit longer than expected to check out in the morning - they needed more people on the front desk.
This was my second stay and I was once again delighted with my choice.
