We loved our stay at this hotel. Although we initially booked a standard room, we decided to upgrade and got a room with a king size bed and view of the bridge and opera house. At check-in we were given the option of prepaying for the buffet breakfast for a discount. They allowed us to do this for just the first night to see if we liked it. We could then choose to do it each day and receive the same discount. This buffet was one of the best hotel buffets we had in Australia. The location of the hotel was excellent. We could walk to all the attractions and we enjoyed being in the heart of the city to see the shops on the weekends. There was a small bar by the fire place in the lobby with a television. We enjoyed having drinks there and met some natives who gave us information about the area.The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They helped us find restaurants, shops and even mail a package. I am glad that we did not choose to stay in a more expensive hotel because I truly feel we would not have gotten anything more than we had at this one.
