We needed a bed to sleep in near Circular Quay after a concert so went for a "Secret 5* hotel near the Rocks and Quay" at $150 for a Deluxe King Room. The location is excellent, very close to both Wynyard station, the Rocks and the Quay.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room we were allocated. Whilst it was only on the 7th Floor it was a corner room with an open view across the city towards the western side of the Bridge. The bathroom was enormous, separate big tub and shower huge picture window for a view from the bath if you were game! Towels big but a little thin and only 2 of them.
The room itself wasn't huge but was considerably bigger than the equivalent at the Sofitel Wentworth where we have stayed a couple of times.
The standout feature was the bed, incredibly comfortable, I wanted to take it home! There is a pillow menu but no listing for my favourite firm foam pillow so I stuck with what was on offer.
The hotel could certainly do with a refresh. There is some wear and tear to carpets and surfaces in the room. The hotel information guide had VERY grubby pages that really should be replaced. The room was clean, but needed more attention to detail (eg the dirty information guide)
The Amora isnt in the league of the big Sydney 5 Star hotels, we have stayed at the Hilton, Sheraton on the Park, Blu Hotel and Sofitel and the Amora doesnt punch at the same weight, however, I would give it a solid 4 1/2 stars and rank it WAY above the 4* Sydney hotels we've stayed in (Marque, Vibe, Travelodge just around the corner) which would have cost us at least as much if not more.
Would we stay here again, certainly. For the price we paid it was the best bargain bed in Sydney that night!
