I was only in Sydney for 3 days so wanted a luxury hotel in a convenient location. Just minutes away from the hotel is the Opera House, the wharf, view of Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, etc. It's a great location.
Across the street from the hotel is a food court with very reasonably priced food, a supermarket, etc. Couldn't be more convenient. Taxi from airport to hotel was about $40 AUD.
My room was well appointed with a phenominal view of the Botannical Gardens. i could have slept without window shades if I wanted to as there was nothing blocking my view. It was one of the quietest hotel rooms I have stayed in.
However, for a 5 star, I was disappointed by the mattress as it was sagging on one side of the bed (the side closest to the bathroom). The internet connection was a bit slow too making the use of Skypes a bit of a challenge. The fee for internet was $25/day and wireless is not offered in the room. Telephone calls (local or otherwise) from the room were very expensive.
