I was a regular business traveler to Sydney, spending a total of 12 weeks at the Shangri-La Sydney over multiple visits. Despite having status at another hotel chain, I decided to try something different, which turned out to be a great decision. As an American, I was unfamiliar with the Shangri-La chain, as it is Hong-Kong based and has few locations in the US (which is unfortunate). The first thing to point out is the service. The staff at the hotel are very attentive to the guests and truly go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Spend the extra money and get Horizon Club access - aside from sweeping views of the Bridge, Opera House and "Heads" from the 30th floor, 5 story windows, the personalized service and attention of the team makes the stay even better (if you usually have breakfast and break into the mini-bar, you'll get your money back through the food and beverage constantly available to Horizon Club guests). The rooms are large, bright, comfortable and feature the amazing harbor views...be sure to ask for a high floor facing the bridge. The hotel is located in the Rocks, right in the heart of the city.
If you value comfort, a great experience and a highly attentive staff, you should definitely give the Shangri-La a try.
