We booked this hotel through our airmiles, and on arrival as we were a honeymoon couple we were upgraded to a harbour view room. You could just see the harbour bridge, but not a spectacularly great view. I found it quite stuffy in the room as no windows would open, which I understand the reasons for, being on a high floor, but some fresh air is much needed in the heat. Air con worked fine though. Staff really friendly and helpful, and service was always quick, polite and efficient. I do not think this hotel is 5 stars though, the bathroom resembled one you would find in a cheap hotel in Benidorm, definitely needed an upgrade and the communal areas, like lifts and corridors were dull and dirty. Bed was lovely, the room equally nice, but again no Wow factor. Great location though, a short walk to Darling Harbour which we loved. We did spend a few hours in the Casino which was fun, but cheesy as expected. Best thing about this place is the buffet breakfast, loads of selection and all really fresh. Pool area nice too, but nothing special. I think there are nicer hotels in Sydney for the money.
