The room we had was spacious with a tv room, bath and shower. The spectacular view faced Barangaroo and Darling harbour side. We were on the 34th floor. Shangri-la gave us complimentary champagne and chocolates since it was our honeymoon stay. The buffet breakfast in the morning is a must. Staff are friendly and fun. Wide selection of food, coffee...

Arrived early around 0800. No room available but checked in, bags taken, and directed to the fitness centre for a shower and sauna - great! Room ready by 1030 (lucky) bags taken immediately and all set. Only took breakfast but staff were helpful and bacon tasty. Location is great, on a bit of a hill if you are walking. Views...

Stayed in the club room on a Sun night. Rate was excellent on a Sun with harbour bridge and opera house views. Club lounge free drinks and canapés was amazing as was the buffet included breakfast. Couldn't fault our experiences.

We spent two nights at this central hotel after our Queen Mary 2 cruise. We were given a Grand harbour room on a high floor overlooking Darling Harbour and a busy freeway below. No noise was heard from traffic. Upon our arrival, it coincided with a visit/stay by The Malaysian President and his wife and entourage whereby secret service from...

I spent last Saturday night at the Shangri-La for my birthday. I expected a high class hotel (I certainly felt like I'd paid for it at well over $500 per night) with seamless service. What I experienced could be described as amateur hour if I was feeling generous, or fraud if I'm in a more caustic mood. I arrived and...

My husband and I stayed at Shangri-La Sydney from March 1 to March 6, and we were so pleasantly surprised. I was a bit skeptical because it only ranked 15th place on TripAdvisor, but as soon as we checked in I was SO relieved. A big plus of this hotel is its location; it's minutes away from Circular Quay. I...

We stayed a few nights at this hotel in early March . Our spacious room overlooked the harbour with really stunning views of the bridge and opera house. The room was well furnished at a 5 star level and very confortable. We could have spent hours just watching all the activity on the harbour. The hotel is located at the...

Unfortunately, for a 4.5 star hotel I have to say the rooms are in desperate need of a refurb. The décor is dated and there isn't anything luxurious about the furniture. I expect the high price is owing to the view, which of course is fantastic. I do have to say, that while the room it self was disappointing, the...

My wife and I had been recommended to go the bar at Shangri-la because of it's views. When we arrived at the bar we have to admit the views of Circular Quays, Sydney Bridge, Sydney Opera House, etc. were amazing especially at night however the ambience in the bar was very poor. There are much better places with a similar...

We stayed for 6 days prior to a cruise. The hotel is located near everything in the Rocks area. Plenty to see and numerous dining options nearby. My wife and I love to walk so this location was perfect. If you have limited mobility please be aware that walking almost anywhere requires navigating hills or steps as the hotel is...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
