Sofitel Wentworth has one of the best locations considering its a high rise, city hotel. Harbour and the Opera house are literally just around the corner as well as busy shopping streets and number of bars, coffee houses and great restaurants. Everything is right in the neighbourhood.
The hotel itself is mid-sized with 436 regular rooms out of which 46 are luxury suites. Rooms are not very spacious, but all are elegantly furnished in a light wood and light brown colours. In room you have available standards such as coffee maker, minibar, iron, hair-dryer, fluffy bathrobes and flat screen with decent choice of TV channels.
Internet in the entire hotel is chargeable and not exactly fast. I have selected 24hr wi-fi in my room and the data transfer was painfully slow. You can opt for faster connection, but that comes with additional charges on top of AUD 27 you're already paying.
You certainly don't wanna miss out on the Magnifique breakfast, which is so deliciously french that you can stuff yourself enough to keep going the entire day.
While in town, art lovers might wanna go for rendez-vous with Picasso and visit his exclusive exhibition in Art Gallery of NSW http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/exhibitions/picasso/
Hotel has pretty descent fitness facilities and little pricey spa, but if you get some time off, you can sign up for free yoga classes.
Staff is very friendly, profesional and without failure greeting you in french.
My overall stay was great, except drunk guest singing Christmas carols at 4am on my floor.
