We stayed for one night on 21 Dec before boarding our cruise ship. When we arrived we found the hotel gated off from the road as we found out later it was the Les Miserable premiere right next door. So we lugged our 5 suitcases (yes I did need all those clothes for the cruise) from across the road where our taxi dropped us in horrid pre-Christmas foot traffic. Once the door man saw us he grabbed everything from us and in a second all our worries were gone.
Check-in was a breeze and once we took to the 'personalized' musical lifts we went up to enjoy our AMAZING room. Wow doesn't quite cover it. Spacious, beautiful furnishings, brilliant colour scheme coupled with the 5 star bathroom we were in heaven.
We checked out Sydney for the remainder of the afternoon and on arriving back near the hotel we were told by security that we couldn't walk that way. 'How am I going to get back to my hotel' I asked, oh right this way Ma'am. Phew. Well once we were in the cordoned off area, we looked like celebrities with everyone waiting on the fences with cameras in hand ready to take a snap of Hugh and Russell. Nice bonus QT!
Only small complaint was being woken by the garbage truck, which seemed like they were emptying a million dumpsters, but once they were gone I snuggled straight back in to the plush bed and right back to sleep.
Checkout too was brilliant as well as the excellent staff who found us a taxi and loaded it all up, they definitely earnt their tip.
I cannot rave enough about our stay, we LOVED the hotel only didn't have enough time to enjoy the spa or bar, but that leaves something for next time :). Would not stay anywhere else in Sydney again, see you soon QT. Oh, and a QT in Melbourne as well may be food for thought....
