We really just needed a bed for the night close to St Luke's Hospital at Potts Point so decided to try a "Shhh" deal from Wotif.com. After confirming the deal, we were delighted to see that the hotel was in fact in the Sebel chain as we'd stayed with Sebel on a number of previous occasions and have always been extremely pleased. Because of the extremely good nightly rate, I suppose we shouldn't have been surprised that the room (facing Albion Street) was very noisy and that the bed wasn't the much talked about "cloud" bed. However, the room was very spacious and had a full sized couch, the decor was pleasant enough and the shower was excellent. It would've been better if the large TV, which was fixed to the wall opposite the bed, was on a swivel as it could really only been viewed satisfactorily from the bed. There were plenty of TV channels on offer. The check-in/check-out was very smooth and the reception staff were very efficient and made us feel welcome. All-in-all, given the same circumstances, we'd be happy enough to revisit this hotel, but would ask for a room at the rear of the hotel. I guess it's a case of "you get what you pay for" so maybe the "Shhh" deal shouldn't be promoted as a 4 1/2 star room.
