I took a chance on a Wotif mystery hotel deal (something I have never done before). At $150 a mid week night for a five star hotel in the middle of Sydney CBD it was a great deal.
When we arrived we were offered an upgrade for $50 extra. As it included 'access' to the Jamison Club, breakfast for two and a two hour session of 'free drinks' and canopies it was definitely 'worth it'. Added to that we were moved to a room on the top floor (34th floor) and one the best corner overlooking the water in the distance. When we went to the Jamison club there was only one other couple there so the lone waitress was supplying me drinks whenever I asked. I had wine and spirits and the only exception was when the waitress asked me to accept a glass of water (Responsible Service of Alcohol). The plant next to me appreciated the water.
The rooms are clean and the bathrooms spotless and new looking. The bathtub has views of the city skyline. Our room (being on the corner of the building) has 270 degree views. There is another taller building next to us and I wondered if the office workers could see me wandering around the room. There is reflective glass on our hotel so I didn't worry during the daylight hours.
The pool is larger then most hotels we have visited and there is a dry and a wet sauna. The staff were very courteous and we saw many airline flight crew staff checking in and out. Parking was available at $40 for a 24 hour period. The hotel has Wynyard train station beneath it and there are many food and retail shops below. There is a McDonalds too if you want to get potato chips for a $1.
The hotel the only ten minutes walk to the Sydney Rocks and Circular Quay. The Strand Arcade and Queen Victoria Building are closer.
