On ground level at Market Street, a non descript entrance to this hotel doesnt exactly create the best first impression. However, when you're whisked up to the lobby on the 8th floor (Yes, the hotel starts from there upwards) and checked in to a clean modern room, the apprehensions disappear. I had a comfortable stay without any complaints. The service was satisfactory and efficient, but not necessarily awe inspiring :-)
The BEST thing about the hotel is the location. From here, one can pretty much cover all the sights of Sydney on foot. A nice ten minute stroll down pitt street, which is just around the bend will get you to the circular quay from where you can choose to explore the Opera house or the Harbour Bridge or the rocks or take a cruise or.....you get it right? Another ten minute walk will take you to Darling harbour and a five minute trot will find you in the lush environs of Sydney's very own Hyde park. If you're in the mood to shop, there's plenty of options on Pitt & George streets, which are both round the bend.
All in all, a great location to explore Blue Sky Sydney! Oh and before I forget, my window put me squarely face to face with the top of the Sydney Tower - another one of Sydney's many attractions.
