We stayed at the Taj Blue initially because our son returned to Garden Island last Saturday. Whilst we expecting a good hotel, we found it to be better than we thought. We had a loft suite which meant the bedroom was upstairs and the living area downstairs. This configuration gave at least the impression we were in a room larger than it actually was.
It was an easy 15 minute walk to Martin Place through the domain - not for everyone but relaxing for us anyway.If you are at least a little fit, the out of the CBD location shouldn't worry you.
Only one downside - but common to just about any hotel nowdays - is the hold on a credit card for payment. Fair enough that a hotel holds an amount to cover anything taken from the minbar or damage to the room, but it is now 5 working days and no release of the money. We are easily able to cover $100 but surely if a minibar item was taken it would have been noticed the morning of checkout. Similarly if we had trashed a room it would be immediately noticable. 2 working days SHOULD be adequate. It was at the last place I stayed.
