I was booked here for work in North Sydney: If that's your reason to come here, it's a good choice. Otherwise, it's an average refurbished 60s or 70s hotel building (12 or 13 stories of ugly pebble mix exterior, but set in green gardens) which is a fair way out of central Sydney.
The lifts are slow, but the interior is renovated to a good standard. I was in a deluxe room with pleasant views of the North Sydney Oval - $179 a night. There are some harbour views on the other side.
Some good things: the front desk staff are very friendly and efficient, there is a taxi rank right at the end of the driveway, there are busses at the end of the street, it is a 7 minute stroll to North Sydney station, or if you want a more picturesque trip to the city (which is recommended), it is a 20 minute stroll down the hill in Blues Point Road to the McMahon's Point ferry wharf - Circular Quay one way or Balmain and Darling Harbour the other. This area of North Sydney also has quite a few nice cafés, restaurants, winebars and pubs.
