We booked a night at Amora Hotel Jamison with Wotif.com as part of a mystery deal and were delighted to discover where we were staying. The hotel is right near all the major tourist attractions in Sydney, the harbour bridge, the opera house, circular quay and Darling Harbour. it's literally metres away from the city's most bustling streets, and has a range of shopping and restaurants all around.
When we checked in we were told that for an extra $30 we could upgrade to a corner suite where we had more views. Being our anniversary, we thought we might as well make it extra special and went ahead with the upgrade.
Our room had a spectacular view of Darling Harbour and parts of Circular Quay, we couldn't see the Opera House or Harbour Bridge because a building was blocking the view, but I certainly couldn't complain. Our bath overlooked a magnificent view of the harbour and as night fell, we got to see the whole city light up, which was pretty spectacular.
The bathroom was spacious, clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. I especially loved the complimentary robe and slippers to lounger around it.
The room itself was clean and well maintained. The bed was huge and very comfortable, while the room's furnishings seemed a little outdated—particularly the massive wooden wardrobe, which looked quite out of place in such a cosmopolitan location.
Overall, it was a great place to stay and in a great location. Staff were friendly and courteous. The only disappointment was the expensive car parking. I feel that if you are staying in a hotel, the car parking should be part of the price of your stay. It's ridiculous to be expected to pay for parking when you've paid for a night in a hotel and it cost us over $40 for 24 hours, whereas you don't pay at all for parking at other hotels. Aside from this, it's a great place to stay.
