Right in the middle of town and close to all major shops, the Hilton is a 1970s conglomerate with a decidedly ugly facade rearing onto both Pitt and George streets. The lackluster gold lobby--if you can find it (the main entrance is hidden away in a warren of concrete)--is dimly lit and houses a popular cafe and boutique shops. The rooms were refurbished in 1999, and are the first in Australia to have a fully electronic minibar system (aimed at preventing disputes with guests). Many rooms, especially from the 32nd floor up, have panoramic views of the AMP Centerpoint Tower, the Harbour Bridge, and neighboring skyscrapers.

Dining/Entertainment: Some of Sydney's best bars are in the Hilton, including the stunning Marble Bar, with its extravagant central-European feel, and the popular English-style Henry the Ninth Bar. The hotel has two restaurants.

Facilities: Outdoor pool, sauna, spa, gym, massage, concierge, 24-hour room service, free daily newspaper, nightly turndown, shoe shine, laundry, valet, baby-sitting, business center, tour desk, gift shop, newsstand, currency exchange.
