The best point about this hotel is the location. It is a short walk to Circular Quay, where you will find the Opera House, The Rocks and other tourist attractions. It is also in the CBD, where you will find the biggest range of stores.
However the service is average, the reception staff looked like they would rather be anywhere else but there. (They did however kindly charge my phone for me which was really appreciated).
The room itself was not great (14th floor). It was large, with a kitchenette and seperate bathroom (including a washer and dryer), but the decor was tired looking and actually quite depressing. The room itself had very little natural light and the small balcony was extremely close to offices, so not much privacy.
The pool area didn't seem to get any sun on it (I was there end of day and around 10.00am in the morning) and the gym was teeny tiny.
If you are a business traveller looking for self service apt type rooms then this might surfice. If you are on holiday looking for upmarket, polished, modern 4 star accommodation this is not the place for you.
