    Perfect time in Sydney!
    Amazing hotel! Had a corner room with a tub with a view of Darling Harbor- coolest room room ever. Incredible service from the minute we walked onto their property. Possibly the best breakfast we have ever had, with amazing French pastries and fabulous juices. Hated to leave that hotel!!

    Sydney on the harbor
    Very beautiful hotel and nice infinity pool. The beds were very comfortable and nice bedding! Beautiful bathroom and amenities. The only issue was we were on a high floor and our room was quite warm. Trying to figure out the air was difficult and there was a limit to how cool you can make it. I only wanted to turn really low to cool room down to be able to sleep, but you’re not allowed. Have the room a comfortable temperature to start then. When I pay $300 for a hotel room I expect to have it decently cool to sleep in considering it’s in the high 80’s outside.

    Best hotel in Sydney?
    Amazing breakfast buffet in large open space, nice gym, and comfortable clean rooms. My room had a shower only (no bathtub). Would've liked to stay longer. Local area is touristy but nice if that's your thing. Would definitely love to stay again.
