4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

These rooms have 4 full windows overlooking both the harbour bridge and Opera house - you can sit here taking in the full spectral of the bay ....it also allows you to use room service and have the best restaurant view in the city. The hotel itself is the usual Shangri-la standard albeit the buffet breakfast is a bit chaotic... More

We stayed here for 1 night in a Horizon Grand Harbour view room for my wife 40th and the view is amazing, full views of the opera house and harbour bridge. Best view in the world. The room service we ordered wasn't of the best standard and it did take nearly 2 hours to have 2 buckets of ice delivered... More

My husband and I travelled to Oz for a last minute Honeymoon. We opted for a slightly move expensive room with a view of the Opera house. As my husband is from London he had never been to Sydney and this room was the perfect choice. Even I, who has travelled to Sydney on many occasions was rather impressed! We... More

I visited the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney for a conferees I had on that weekend and I had a fantastic experience. The most satisfying part for me was this hotel's attention to detail in customer service, which was impeccable. From warm and attentive lobby staff, to instant 24h access to transport. Rooms are new, clean, well looked after with high... More

Stayed in a delux King here overlooking the harbour, stunning views and excellent housekeeping service. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and served up an awesome breakfast in the morning with plenty of variety. The hotel had a good pool and dos facility and the public areas were well kept. Couldn't really fault the place, first class location... More

2 nights here, great location. Extremely helpful and attentive staff. Magnificent views from restaurant and bar. Wonderful wine choices. I was a little disappointed with the evening meal choices, quite limiting and struggled to find something I would enjoy. Buffet breakfast was excellent, including "roll your own oats"!! My hair dryer did not work in the room and was replaced... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
