Spent 3 nights at the Star City before joining a cruise ship. This is a hotel/casino/theatre complex situated in Darling Harbour and just a short walk from down town Sydney.
The accommodation is first class and we had a room with views to kill for across Darling Harbour and up to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The room was spotless and the usual tea/coffee was available. There is a small swimming pool at the rear of the hotel with a nice warm jacuzzi beside it.
Staff were very helpful at reception. We arrived before noon and the room wasn't ready but the concierge looked after our cases and phoned us on the mobile phone when we could get access, allowing us to wander the area and get our brearings.
The casino is very busy day and night and worth a visit just to watch a lot of folks lose a lot of money!!
The open topped bus tour of Sydney has a stop just outside the (back) door of the complex and it is well worth catching this to see the sights. It is a hop on hop service with an all day ticket.
Would certainly use this hotel again as a base to explore Sydney if (when) we return.
