We stayed the New Year's time 2012-13 at Holiday Inn, Potts Point, 4-5 nights altogether.
The hotel is rather new and clean, hotel personnel were v.nice. I did not try the bar or restaurant, since there were plenty of options in neighborhood area, but they did look good. Location of the hotel was excellent, not on CBD (central business district), but with a walking distance practically from anywhere.
Potts Point is a nice and lively area in otherwise perhaps quite peaceful Sydney. There's a number of bars, clubs and restaurants around, but the overall we felt our stay secure there - perhaps I would not recommend this area for a family with children. The restaurant building (the old King's Cross Hotel, the red-brick building across the Coca-Cola -ad) offers meals with v.good value, having a nice terrace on 1st floor.
If possible, please book a room having a window to west i.e. not facing to Darlinghurst Street, since the hotel next to Holiday Inn had a v.noisy club (Goldfish ?) playing music long in to the night - perhaps the rooms on the other side of the building are better for some sleep, during the weekend the nights were quite difficult to us :/
