We stayed in this hotel over the Australia day long weekend. It was an exciting area to stay in as there was lots happening in the Rocks area of Sydney. There was a music festival on the doorstep and the night life was very vibrant.
From the roof of the hotel there were excellent views of the harbour. he breakfast was good but not inexpensive. The valet parking was VERY expensive but normal for Sydney and public parking in the Rocks area is also very expensive.
The major downfall of the hotel was our room. It was extremely small and tired looking. The bathroom was tiny and in need of a makeover. There was no view from the windows. We had requested a room with a view as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary but it didn't happen.
Front desk staff were helpful and the restaurant staff were very friendly. We looked without success to find a concierge several times during our visit to ask about the valet parking but gave up in the end as we couldn't find one!
