A great majority of the reception staff at the Potts Point Holiday Inn were cheery, positive and helpful during my 22-day stay at the hotel for the second time around over the past few years. The Kings Cross subway stop is truly three minutes' walk from the hotel and lies on the blue line between Eastern Suburbs and the Illawarra Line. The supermarket across the street from the hotel is Coles which opens at 6:00 and closes around midnight on most nights, and makes for good recesses from eating out constantly at the numerous good restaurants in the area. The hotel's fitness center is so-so, maybe sparse actually, but Fitness First club across the street on eighth floor is not much better because there are limitless members utilizing the club during the most opportune hours of the day and at quite a high price for short-term visitors such as Holiday Inn guests. There is a fine running track at Macquarie Park/Farm Cove past Woolloomoolloo (apologies for any misspelling of that name) and all the way to Opera House (after 7:00 opening hour). The hotel's breakfast is broad, but dear at AUD21 as of May 2013. There is no swimming pool or sauna at this hotel. Endless partying gets old after a while, so the hotel with its rather secure interior becomes an oasis after being in Kings Cross for a week. If I must live in the Kings Cross area for an extended, yet temporary period of time and can no longer bear the hostel atmosphere then Holiday Inn Potts Point is my favorite option there.
