Talk about plush! This is Sydney's most
deluxe hotel--from the moment the doorman doffs his top hat to you, you enter the world of
the aristocracy. The lobby is cozy and elegant, with plenty of antiques scattered around
and the slight scent of cigar smoke and aged brandy in the air. It has a prime location,
just a short walk from Circular Quay and the Opera House, and just across the road from
the Royal Botanic Gardens. Rooms are exceptionally large and luxurious with good-size
marble bathrooms. Most rooms have a small balcony. The rooms on the east side of the hotel
have the best views across the gardens.
Dining/Entertainment: The Dining
Room serves up fine cuisine in a well-heeled atmosphere. The Bar serves a buffet meal at
lunchtime and has promotional evenings, such as Oyster night.

massage, concierge, 24-hour room service, free daily newspapers, nightly turndown, shoe
