I was thrilled to be able to check in 2 hours early as I had a wedding to get ready for, and as an Ambassador I was upgraded to the eastern harbour view room - on the 23rd floor, which afforded me a gorgeous view including part of the Opera House. As I was getting ready a lady from guest relations arrived with a bowl of fruit, mineral water and a bottle of red, on the house. Always a lovely touch.
The room was spotless and well equipped. My only gripe is the lack of ipod dock. The TV radio channels lacked any upbeat "getting ready to party" music, so a dock would have been handy.
Upon my return to the hotel at midnight, the turndown service staff had placed more comp water beside my bed and a bucket of ice near the mini bar- perhaps they noticed what I had consumed prior to leaving for the wedding and thought I might need it ;-)
The room was oh so quiet, which was much appreciated the next morning when I awoke with a sore head. A quick call to reception ensured my 4pm late check out was noted on my reservation. When I did check out it was fast and efficient. The only sting being the $150 odd mini bar bill - oops.
The IC Sydney will remain my number one choice when visiting.
