We stayed here for two nights in February. We had a deluxe room on the 3rd floor. It was very spacious and clean and the bathroom was huge. We like English antiques and found the main lobby area lovely, but thought some of the furnishings in our room looked a bit tired and there were cracks around the edge of the toilet room floor. Also, there was not enough lighting in the room, just table lamps. Definitely time to add recessed lighting.
There was a beautiful lobby area on our floor, but it was always empty. If it had free internet access like the main lobby below, it would get used. Also, the same several day old newspapers were left out on one of the tables. I suggest placing current newspapers there every day, to make it more inviting to sit and read there.
The concierges were very helpful. They told us about the free shuttle bus around the CBD, recommended and booked a great restaurant for dinner, told us how to access the walk to the bridge, and suggested other places to walk too.
And finally, this hotel is in the perfect location near the Opera House, the ferries, the botanical gardens, and the Circular Quay area.
