This top-flight, four-star hotel is where
airline pilots stay when they're stopping off in Sydney. Though not slap bang in the city
center, it's just a five-minute walk from Kings Cross station and very close to some of
the city's best restaurants. The lobby is big and grand and leads to the restaurant. The
recently refurbished guest rooms are good sized and have large windows that open. Some
rooms have spectacular views over the inner harbor, the Heads, and parts of the city;
others have good skyline views; while still others look over the Sydney Opera House and
the Harbour Bridge. Depending on the room, it will have either one or two queen-size beds,
or a single king-size bed. Bathrooms are small, but come with a tub/shower combination.
Guests on the two club floors (the 16th and 17th) receive complimentary breakfast and
drinks every evening.
Dining/Entertainment: The hotel's
restaurant serves an interesting seafood buffet and Asian gourmet foods.
Facilities: Small outdoor pool, free
