Stayed seven nights from New years day, we picked Star City as it was close to Darling Harbour. The downside first, they had no apartments available and we were placed in a Deluxe Room, very Nice but the Sheraton in Noosa was better. Considering the money we were paying the room could have been nicer and the view was not good (so beware).
The good points, we ate at Fortunes which was Breakfast Buffet this was in with the price of the Room, Buffet was excellent with a lot of choice, although senior staff attempted to try and rush you if it was close to closing (10.30am). We also ate at Pyrmonts this is a excellant location and wonderful food I highly recommend the Seafood platter for two . We also used Astral Bar on the roof, which is a excellant way to start or end your evening, inside or out you will have a gorgeous view of Darling Harbour,CBD and the Bridge.
We visited the Casino (not my scene) but for those who enjoy a flutter there cannot be better in Oz and we enjoyed having a drink in one of the bars and just people watched, the casino seemed busy 24/7.
There are a number of bars and eateries you can use (Harbour Walk) including, Subway, Score Bar, Irish Bar, Ice Cream Parlour,Pizza restaurant, situated here is the convenience store which had about everything and always open.
The Hotel Coffee Lounge is quiet and well stocked with Cakes etc.
We used the pool, the location is a bonus with good views of Sydney whilst you relax, the gym situated here is also very good.
The location of the Resort (thats what it is) is about 3-4 minute walk from the Maritime Musum, which is the start of Darling Harbour and all the attractions.
I would have given Star City the five, but there were little things that stopped me doing so, however if you go you will enjoy your stay I would recommend the apartments and not the deluxe rooms
