Madonna, the late Princess Diana, Tom Jones, George Bush, Neil Diamond--they've all stayed in this five-star darling of the establishment, situated about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from the city center in Sydney's poshest harborside suburb. The grand lobby is decked out in a maritime theme, the corridors are somberly lit, and antiques and Persian rugs are scattered tastefully here and there. The large guest rooms are done in Regency style and are almost unnervingly quiet. Everything you would expect at the best in town is here, from the enormous TV and the fluffy bathrobes down to designer bathtub salts and a perfect, single rose. Most rooms have balconies with water views.
