My daughter and I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney in March. We arrived in Sydney at 9am and went strait to the hotel, assuming that we would not be able to check in to the room until around 3pm. I went to check in and they told me that I was eligible for an up grade (thanks to American Express) and the room is available. I expressed concern after reading some of the negative comments on TA about the "so called upgrades" and they assured me that the room I was getting has the best views of the harbor in the hotel. I took the upgrade and was so pleased to be told that we were able to check into the room right then. The hotel was amazing, the pool perfect, our room was out of this world and we had the most incredible view of Sydney Harbor. The staff was nothing short of what you would expect from staying at a Four Seasons. We did not want to leave. You will not be sorry if you stay here - it is worth it.
