Great location, close to market, Chinatown and Darling Harbour. So many choices for eating out amongst the fabulous views and vibe of Sydney. Only complaint is the pillows were not very good (seems to be the norm for hotels).

Hi Not sure. They were going floor by floor. Luck of the draw if you get a new room. A lot of building going on so it may disturb some. It was a real surprise and pleasure to have a renovated room. Great motel to stay at
