I had two nights on the top floor of this older-style hotel with views of old warehouses, Opera House and Harbour, which was fantastic. Very nice quite large room, impeccably maintained, with double-glazed windows that actually open - hooray for old hotels. Pity it is winter and too cold to want them open! My only complaint is that the room didn't get very warm despite heating being set at maximum, and the doona was very light; I doubled it over to get enough warmth. The outdoor pool on the 8th floor is a highlight of the hotel - not large, but fabulous location and views. Very nice helpful staff. Excellent breakfast which at about $20 was real value for money unlike in many of these big hotels. Being here for work I was initially a bit concerned that the Rocks area is a bit far from the business centre of Sydney, but I realised that it's only 15 minutes' pleasant walk to Martin Place and the central business area, and it's great to stay in the historic Rocks precinct. This hotel had a nice feel, is older-style and therefore not nearly as expensive as many others in central Sydney (about $200/night) and I'd definitely stay there again.
