The location is great... in the old Woolloomooloo wharf building overlooking the Marina. The Opera House is a fantastic 10 minute walk away through the botanical gardens. The service was very courteous and efficient.
A couple of small whinges- Luxury hotels have gone beyond charging guests for wifi. A daily wifi charge is petty at this level of price. Also, when we asked to borrow an adaptor plug , we were asked to sign a 20 AUD charge as a deposit in case we didnt return it. Not really an issue but I cant think of any other Taj hotel doing it.
Overall would highly recommend it for the staff and the location.
