We usually stay in the CBD but opted to try the Sebel Surry Hills when in town for a wine club dinner nearby. The location is terrific and our room on the western end of the eighth floor was extremely quiet given the bustling (Central) railway station just outside. This hotel is cheaper than its Pier One cousin (where we stayed the previous weekend) but it is pitching to a different market and the base level room easily met our needs for a clean, comfortable and accessible bolt hole for the night. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom serviceable though small-ish. The hotel staff were really friendly (thanks Alvin for a competent and cheerful check in) and on the morning we left were coping well with a busy checkout and a lot of traffic heading to the conference rooms.
The lobby has been revamped and the art is worth a look. On a return visit I would try out the bar, it seemed relaxed and welcoming as we wandered past on the way out. We also didn't check the gym or pool due to time constraints.
On site parking is well priced and gets very full during the day. It's a bit tricky to navigate when cars are parked out of spaces and I recommend scoping out where the exit is before you get in to drive off!
