This is an excellent hotel to stay for the views alone and the location. It overlooks the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. We stayed on the 8th floor and the views are still as spectacular on this floor. the rooms are large and spacious and the bathroom is also large and had a spa bath. Our beds were turned down in the evening and slippers and robe laid out which was a beautiful touch.
It is a very easy access to get to the Rocks and the rocks markets, although there are a few steep steps down. You can easily walk to the access point to get onto the harbour bridge and walk along the bridge (not the bridge climb) and see some amazing views of the city. If you walk along the whole bridge (approx 15min walk total bridge) you will get the other side of Sydney-Kirribilli. You don't have to spend the expense of the bridge climb and pay $13 and go to the top of the piller and still have great uninterrupted views of the whole harbour. Of course if you want to experience the actual bridge climb tour, staying at the Shangri-la is only a 1min walk there.
The hotel has a fantastic bar on the 36th floor called Blu bar and also we ate the Altitude restaurant, the food was absolutely fantastic as well as the service.
We also went down to the rocks markets and walked down to Circular Quay. We tried a wine tasting bar which has a great concept of wine tasting Australian wines of different regions.
