Stayed recently for four days at the Grace Hotel for a family break.
Really wanted a central location as we didn't intend hiring a car and found this to be a great base for exploring the city. The foyer is pleasantly decorated with an art deco styling. I wouldn't say the staff at the front desk were overly helpful or attentive however we found the concierge helpful and friendly throughout our stay.
The rooms were comfortable and clean and good value for the central location. Our only disappointment was that we had asked for rooms close to each other, so that we could be near to our two teenage girls. Unfortunately they were accommodated on the fourth floor whilst we were on the 10th. We did ask to have something closer on check-in, but they politely refused to rectify this.
A short walk to the city centre, Queen Vic building and also the Darling Harbour precinct. There is a free bus that leaves frequently from nearby the hotel if you don't feel like a longer walk to the Circular Quay/Opera House/Botanic Gardens precinct or train stations are close by.
For our arrival we pre-booked a limousine to take us from the airport to the hotel. We found this an economical option for four people and it took the guess work out of having to find the location of the hotel whilst carting all our luggage. For our return trip home we walked two blocks to Wynyard Train Station and caught the airport link train as we were leaving at peak hour and this was the most efficient way of getting to the airport at this time of day with the city traffic in gridlock.
