Recently stayed for 3 nights at the Grace Hotel. The location here is one of the best. We walked to The Rocks and Circular Quay (Opera House) and also in the other direction towards China Town for great Spanish food (and Paddy's Markets). It is also right next to the Pitt Street Mall and Queen Victoria Building, which was so convenient for shopping. We didn't go this trip, but it is right next to Darling Harbour as well.
Quality hotel with great service and facilities.The concierge were always helpful booking us taxis and opening doors when available. We had breakfast included with our room and I say this is a must! Full smorgasbord of hot foods, hash browns, bacon and eggs cooked to order if preferred. Fresh fruit, breads, cereals, toast, juice, tea and coffee. Yum!
Quality linen, towels and toiletries. However, I wasn't really happy with the pillows, either to thin and soft or a bit like a hard pancake...
We requested a room on a higher floor because of other reviews about traffic noise. We were on the 8th floor facing York St and while I could just hear the traffic at times it really didn't bother us. Not sure what it would be like on lower levels though. We did request a view, but I think they may have forgot about that as the building opposite in York St really isn't pretty and I think you would be better off facing King Street if you spend a lot of time at a window, but it may be noisy?
I also ran into a couple of girls near the mall who had $30off vouchers for massage at our hotel. So it only cost us $50 for a 1 hour Thai massage each. The masseuse were amazing, both male and female, and they were open until 8pm which made it convenient after a big day on the Sunday.
We had a pleasant stay. I would consider other places like Four Points by Sheraton for value, however it is another block away and not as history rich, so just depends on what you are after.
