we are planning a girls weekend - most of us have not done this since having children some years ago! We are travelling from Auckland to Sydney mid march and are wondering where would be a good spot to stay. We like the idea of staying in a hotel, something nice without costing the earth. I thought the Rydges Jamison looked nice - not sure what the best location is though. Darling harbour sounds like it has its limitations so we are not so keen on that. We are interested in shopping, nightlife (if we can manage it!), art galleries, general sightseeing.
As far as costs go we thought staying with as many people per room would be helpful but not sure how practical this is in hotels. Our budget is probably about $60 -70- AUD per night per person.
