Good, comfortable hotel
I drove to Sydney and stayed overnight for a show at the Opera House which is a fifteen minute walk around Circular Quay from the hotel. Pre booked parking at the Opera House car park was very easy with good access from the ED both in and out. The walk wasn't a problem for me but could be for some, especially as the hotel is uphill a little and not as close as others to the train and ferries. The Rocks area is right there to explore, however. There are plenty of dining options from The Rocks to the Opera Quay. I had breakfast at the hotel and found the continental buffet provided plenty of choice. A hot breakfast buffet choice is also available. The rooftop pool and viewing area is well worth checking out with a great view of the bridge and harbour. The view across to the Opera House was obscured by a massive cruise ship but that's not always the case and they don't stay in port overnight. My room was fine and the staff are friendly and efficient. It seemed to be a quiet time as there weren't many guests about but it was a Tuesday. I've stayed at the hotel before and will do so again.

The location is fantastic! The pnly negative is the room was too warm. They even sent maintenance and a/c was working fine...just didnt cool down enough so if its hot in winter. It would be terrible other times of the year. They brought a fan, which helped.
