This is your hotel if you like warm personal service. Sure it costs more than others but Sydney is expensive no matter so you may as well hang out somewhere nice! The staff are excellent and very attentive without being intrusive. All requests were answered promptly and with a genuine desire to help. Beds are comfy and even though I only had "city view' it was still a great view. It is located close to the Quay - so there are trains, buses and ferries only 5 minutes away. Its easy to get onboard a ferry say to go to the attractions at Darling Harbour (such as the Maritime Museum) or to simply cruise the harbour on a ferry to Manly. There is an excellent Museum of Sydney just across the road. Shopping is great up at the Pitt street Mall but that is about a 10 -15 minute walk. It's an easy hotel to get to by taxi to and from the airport as it is just off the expressway - but save a few dollars by getting off in Macquarie street entrance rather than arriving in Phillip Street as they will have to go around the block. Concierge know everything about Sydney and they have a great buffet breakfast with egg chef! Looking forward to going back.
