    The room we had (609) was fitted with a skylight and the bed positioned almost directly underneath. There was no blinds or similar fitted. Once the sun came up, no more sleep! If you like to sllep past sunrise, avoid this room

    Disgusting filthy hotel! Do not stay here. Blood on floor and beds were old and worn out. No parking and had to park blocks away and walk with all my luggage. The whole experience was shocking to say the least.

    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
