Fantastic location, magnificent views, great staff & service, walking distance to everything. Enjoyed twilight drinks in room watching all the action on the harbour before walking to one of many local pubs/restaurants for dinner.

The service is very good here, but I found that sorting issues took a little longer than ideal. My stay will be 3 weeks all-up, but only certain nights are eligible for points through Golden Circle - I think this is a little disappointing. There are plenty of dining options and the views of the Opera House are lovely. Of... More

This place is spectacular! It is one of those places you go to once in a while. Rooms are pricey. But you definitely get what you paid for. We were suppose to be staying in the Grand Executive Harbour View Suite. We went to check in at the normal counter and when we gave our name the staff member said,... More

Staff were excellent and very attentive and professional. Concierge staff were excellent and very helpful. Room view was amazing - our suite had the 270 degree view o f the opera house and harbor bridge (as described).We thought our room would be higher up though. Our room was quite large and had a beautiful marble bathroom and the beds so... More

This hotel was extremely good with great views of the harbour, opera house and harbour bridge. It's gym was the best one that we have been to in a hotel. If you're visiting I think it's worth paying the extra to have a room with a full harbour view. We had one on the right side, 10th floor which was... More

Over the last few years I've been trying a few other hotels in Sydney CBD and after my recent visit I am reminded that the Shangri-La is one of the best. It is in a supurb location to access all that Sydney has to offer on foot....ferry's, The Rocks, Shopping / QVB, The Opera House, The Gardens, Darling Harbour, Hickson... More

The bed in the room feels like laying on a cloud. The spa is great, the top deck bar and the cocktails are an absolute highlight in the city. The breakfast buffet is very tasty and ther is a lot of variety. Great location and five star service. Great view on the harbour bridge and opera house for fireworks!

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.
