The foyer on the second level and the room themselves are ok here. On that basis, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover since the exterior 80s paint job now looks terrible. The downstairs arrival area is average but the hotel is located nicely...More

Stayed here Australia Day. Staff were very nice. We were upgraded free of charge. Room was spotless. I think it’s a great location right on Darling Harbour. The only criticism I do have was breakfast. Food was very limited. Baked Beans, bacon, eggs, chicken sausages...More

Location is superb right in Darling Harbour, so surrounded by restaurants etc. It looks daggy from the outside but is modern and refreshed on the inside. The room was very comfortable with a great view. On the downside there was nowhere to charge a phone...More

Checked in at night and found insufficient light to do anything practical - like iron a shirt for tomorrow's meeting. Porter informed me that it is because this room has not yet been renovated, so I am stuck with it. Turns out the hot water...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
