I paid a bit extra to have opera house view ... Worth it, but make certain you are on level 10 or above to get the view. Rooms very spacious with desk AND make up table. Lovely window seats to enjoy the view. Bath is well fit out with shower and tub and is roomy. One small "complaint" for a hotel of this caliber .... The bath towels were a bit small. I would have thought they would provide bath sheets ... Small issue. Staff is accommodating. Lovely bar on the 36th level which, of course, has spectacular views. The hotel is above the Rocks area so it is a hilly climb, but the location is superb. If you decide to take the train from the airport ($17 vs about $50 for taxi), get off at Circular Quay. One warning though ... If you are carrying any amount of luggage you will struggle as it is a fairly steep climb and you'll encounter stairs. Fast and free wifi in the rooms.

If you wanted somewhere a stones throw away from the Rocks precinct and
Sydney Opera House then this is your place. We did a pub crawl on Sat. afternoon,
visited the markets at The Rocks and had a great lunch in one of the outdoor cafes
and it took a few minutes to get back to the hotel for a needed rest.

Lovely pool facilities. Friendly with children. Good-sized room with a spectacular view. Helpful, friendly staff.
Overly perfumed foyer, nauseating, made my son sneeze the whole time we were in there.
Breakfast was bland, terrible coffee, dried out warm foods even at 8 am.
Uncomfortable bed (old, palpable springs, hidden with mattress cover).
Overpriced with all additions (parking, wifi, breakfast).

Hugging the harbour, this district is a monument to sensitive urban planning, with well-preserved cobbled lanes and a Colonial streetscape marking it as Sydney’s oldest district. Locals and visitors mingle here amid designer boutiques, al fresco cafés, lively pubs, galleries, museums, and some of the city’s best restaurants. The weekend markets are not to be missed.
