    Very noisy room. Worn carpet and very dirty marked walls. Very tired. Noisy banging in the walls throughout the night. Query plumbing issues. Great location, but very poor sleep. Staff were friendly and did try to improve our experience.

    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
