Comfort, vintage, yet authentic hotel in Sydney Definitely not the holiday inn but it had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay and was located within walking distance of everything to do near the harbour. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend if your looking to crash for a few nights and really do some exploring.

The great full harbor view in the room Due to my limit time in SYD, that's why I chose Four Season Hotel which proved I am right, the great full harbor view is really impressing, the only not convenience is the construction along George Road.

Great expectations The hotel came highly recommended by family. It was pleasant enough but just lacked that extra 5* finesse. The restaurant on the 36th floor had an amazing view and amazing food. The pool and facilities were pleasant but appear to require a refresh in my eyes as did most of the hotel.
