Stayed at The Grace for two nights while visiting Sydney to see Black Caviar and The Adam's Family. Receptionist was very efficient and courteous while the concierge was most helpful in taking care of luggage and providing directions to Randwick race course.
Our room on the 4th floor faced King Street and would recommend these rooms as those facing York Street tend to be a little noisier at weekends due to other bars nearby.
Buffet breakfast was excellent, great range, very obliging staff ,eggs cooked to your individual taste and the best bacon I have had in any hotel.
The Seafood Buffet was OK and good value at $39- getting high quality , reasonably priced fresh seafood in restaurants anywhere in Australia is becoming more difficult. I guess you just have to go to New York or San Francisco!
The Pool and Spa only suitable for two people at a time but we were fortunate to have these to ourselves although the hotel was almost fully booked.
Great location for visiting most tourist attractions and many historical sites are close by and easy to access bus and train transport.
We got a great deal from Wotif -$149 per night which included full buffet breakfast and a late 1pm checkout which allowed us to visit the Archibald Prize Exhibition at the nearby NSW Art Gallery on the morning we checked out without worrying about luggage.
Will definitely be back.
