Stayed here a couple of times for work.
The room is comfortable, one time I was upgraded to a corner suite/room? It was definitely bigger than the usual normal room I get in here. Most importantly the bed is satisfactory. I'm a fuzzy sleeper, I have trouble sleeping even in five star studded hotels, they just have to have a good bed. It's very important. So obviously in this case Shangri-La delivers with flying colours. Bed's great, pillow's great. Shower's great. Room is nice and comfy. Avoid room near the elevator, I kept hearing the wooooozzzzing sound (sorry that's not even a word) of the elevator going up and down in one of my stay.
But then if you stayed away from the elevators, problem solved. Best night sleep ever.
I also had the luxury of trying the hotel room service. Was really hungry and ordered A LOT of food. They were very good and satisfactory for midnight cravings. We went a couple of times to Cafe Mix. Believe it or not every time i'm there, the Altitude restaurant is always closed. I'm doomed to never go there but Cafe Mix provided a decent quiet dinner if i don't feel like eating out.
The breakfast in this place is amazing. It might be because it's Sydney but it provides Asian breakfast menu option. So the range of choice of breakfast menu is definitely welcome by someone who prefer miso soup and congee as opposed to bacon and eggs for brekkie.
This was a good hotel for a work trip, but next time I'm in Sydney for personal trip, I probably will stay here again on my own. Definitely.
