The Sydney Westin is a beautiful hotel in a price CBD location. However, they overcharge for just about everything you touch. The most egregious example of this is the gym --- there isn't one. If you wish to use the 'health club' (which is barely larger than a typical hotel gym) you get charged $20 PER VISIT. In addition, upon checking in (despite being a Starwood Preferred Gold member) I was given a 4th floor room with a view of a wall. Remember, this is a $295/night hotel.
Some other charges you should know about...
Call from hotel phone to local landline: $1/minute
Call from hotel phone to local cell phone: $4/minute!!!
Bottled Water: $6
Internet Access/day: $24.95
This is a nice hotel, no doubt about it. However watch out for being nickle and dimed to death if you aren't on an expense account (and even then your manager may have a few words with you).
