Its been a few years since we stayed here last time and it remains a class hotel.
This time we stayed only one night and had a standard room. The room was a good size, nicely appointed and a good view looking west (it was a high floor). We could also get a glimpse of the Harbour Bridge but we needed to look at quite a sharp angle.
Bathroom had a combined bath/shower and the water pressure and water temperature were both good. And nice toiletries.
Location is superb, with the Opera House and Harbour are only a few hundred metres down Macquarie Street and the Botanical Gardens across the road.
We didn't use the hotel's dining options as we took the short walk down to Circular Quay where we ate enjoying a view of the Bridge and other harbour lights.
Returning after dinner we had a nightcap in the hotel's Cortile courtyard bar. An elegant setting.
We found all the staff at the hotel to be friendly and welcoming, especially the concierge staff.
There is parking at the hotel for an additional charge, and if you are driving, be aware that the car entrance is not in Macquarie Street but is in Phillip Street.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
