Just had an enjoyable 2 nights at the Urban for work. My meetings were in Richmond and down south in Appin along with a day at a trade show, so I needed a car, but a central location was not critical. In fact, I'd hate to think what I'd racked up in concierge charges if I'd stayed in the CBD. The hotel was easy to find and parking the car (Avis had upgraded me to a boat of a Holden Caprice) was not a problem. The carpark is large enough and there were no issues navigating the twists and turns and the spots were large enough to park a large car.
On the first night I ate in and room service was fine. The menu was a little limited, but the food was good and very fresh. The next day I took advantage of a take away coffee and made my way to the St Leonards train station for a cross town navigation. Given I'm from Melbourne, I've always struggled to find a good coffee in the CBD, but this coffee was fantastic. I took a number of trains to the trade show, but for something different I thought I would try and take a ferry from Circular Quay to Greenwich and then walk to the hotel.
I had a day travel pass and spoke with the Sydney Ferries and they assured me there was no way I could get from Circular Quay to walking distance from St Leonards. I didn't want to pass on the opportunity to take a ferry, so I phoned the team at the hotel and they were great confirming the options. Only a 2.5km walk or around 30mins up hill.
The friendly team, in particular Victoria and Lucy.
