The Westin Sydney is a very nice business hotel located in the CBD (Central Business District) of Sydney. As such, it is not in the heart of the tourist attractions on the Circular Quay or along Darling Harbor, but it is about a six block walk to either harbor, and just a couple of blocks to a number of shops. The hotel was built atop the old Sydney Post Office, and has a sunny atrium in the post office space.
The rooms are very nice. They feature a full wall of plate glass between the bathroom and the room, which sets them apart! (There is a power shade to cover the window.)
Our room overlooked Martin Place, vaguely towards the harbor and Circular Quay, but there are a lot of tall buildings between the Westin and the harbors, so I would call it a "city view." The room was very clean and light and comfortable.
The gym is not owned by Westin, but is in the adjoining building, and has somewhat limited hours. It is also necessary to either bring a towel from your room or rent a towel there. The business center is accessible by key 24/7 and has a number of computers and free internet access. The breakfast buffet was very good. Afternoon tea is offered in the lobby, but only by reservation. The restaurant overlooks the atrium, and at busy times, tables are set up on walkways over the atrium.
I recommend this hotel if you don't mind walking to the harbor.
