I would of rated this hotel 4 stars, except at the very end we were charged an extra $80.00 when we requested a late check-out the day before! We didn't want to interrupt our 16-month son's regular sleeping regime & without out this sleep we would not of enjoyed our last day in the harbour because of a sleep-deprived, cranky bub!!! Very annoyed. Not much of a family institution if this is the hotel policy. We were checked out just a little past 11am!!! VERY ANNOYED!!
Another, annoying aspect of the stay were the ELEVATORS. There are only 3 elevators for a massive hotel, so at check-out time we were waiting up to 20 minutes to catch a ride. I had to wait for 7 different slow elevators before one was empty enough to fit the 3 of us in on Sunday morning!!
Too bad, because the hotel was in a great location with a easy walk in a walkway to Darling Harbour, the Sydney Convention Centre & the monorail. The hotel is old, but I believe it used to be an old factory, so it is actually nice to see some of Sydney's history perserved. The room was clean & fully self-contained. The air conditioning didn't seem to be working though. The bathtub was cracked, but clean.
Because there is so much accommodation in the area, I would try a different hotel next visit.
