The hotel is in an excellent position to see Darling Harbour. It is newly furnished. The gym is very small with running machines only. Only one of the weight machines worked. Beds are comfortable but the rooms on the northern side are right on a main road so there is road noise at night. There is ample choice of eating cafes very close by
