          I liked the location and how I could watch the sunset on the harbour from my balcony area. Very nice modern design for the room and the bathroom. Staff were very helpful and polite.

          I was on the ground and although it was very relaxing to have my balcony area on the pier, it would be more comfortable if the big wooden shutters actually closed all the way at night to allow for more privacy instead of having to shut the curtains and not being able to enjoy the harbour.

          I liked the see views and outdoor area from the restaurant. The staff was really helpful and friendly.

          Arrived in eveing - vacuum cleaner in the hallway - still in the hallway in the morning, didn't receive confirmation of booking, needed to make three phone calls to obtain confirmation, Rooms on the internet were very different to the room and view we had. Late and so we ordered a pizza at the bar - topping was to be with tomato, cheese and herb, piizza was disgusting as it didn't have any herbs just topped with tomato paste and too much melted cheese, didn't consume and sent back. Our anniversary and so we had special bottle of wine but unable to use the very cheap cork screw supplied and needed to take the bottle to the bar to be opened. Our bags were sent to the wrong room. The hotel staff phoned at 0900 to offer complimentary breakfast due to mix up with our luggage. We arrived for breakfast at 0955 to be advised we were "too" late as breakfast finishes at 1000. Over all very disappointed in our booking.

          Location and access, easy to access the city and car parking without the crowds, easy to get to Darling harbour or circular key, had a great time .

          It was almost impossible to contact reception, either through external telephone or in-room phone. The parent company seem to have installed some ridiculous centralised call waiting system that I could not get through on. Even from the in-room phone it simply stated that reception would call me back.

          The location is excellent. We got a view of Sydney Harbour Bridge from our window. It was only a few minutes walk from Circular Quay and the Opera House. The room was a good size, and comfortable. The bed was excellent, as was the shower and bath. There was a free newspaper every morning, which I like. We got an excellent rate by booking last minute, but the normal rates are a bit steep.

          The staff didn't tell us that by signing up to their Loyalty Card you got free internet access. The internet access is available throughout the hotel but at around $13-15 a day - which is quite expensive for something that I think should be complimentary (and was - but the staff didn't tell us until we checked out and mentioned it!). The bathroom drain smelled a bit odd - I think it was the cleaning liquid they used and they offered to move us. Also breakfast was very expensive - over $30 a person, which is daft as there are several nice cafes in the next pier which will do you a decent breakfast for far less than that!

          The location - being able to walk along the Harbour Front and close proximity to The Rocks, Circular Quay, Opera House, Botanic Gardens, CBD.

          The bedding! I sleep "hot" and a quilt is too much and just a sheet is too little. The requested blanket was heavy and itchy. The requested feather pillows were also too stuffed. I was also disappointed with breakfast - coffee from a machine unless one paid extra for expresso, and pancakes also from a machine. This is budget hotel level and not up to standard for the price charged.

          The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. Food was great and the location.

          The toilet was really noisy (like an aeroplane). Some of the mini bar drinks were out of date.

          I loved everything about this hotel although we did not eat there. The location is convenient and very pleasant - being close to city sights, the Harbour and TheRocks. We had tables outside our rooms and were able to relax on the pier loke miilionaires.. The decore is modern and trendy and the hotel gives a feeling of exclusivity and class. I would not stay anywhere else in Sydney now after staying here!

          There was nothing I disliked about this hotel

          great location

          The "fancy" water saving vacuum toilets mean that you could hear every time someone in your end of the hot did their business ! Super suction, super loud .. something to remember if your expecting a romantic sleep in on a sunday morning!

          Of course, we thought it was expensive, but we dont stay in downtown hotels much. we enjoyed our stay we had easy access to ferries, opera house, found a grocery store walking distance, hop on hop off bus stopped at hotel. staff was great about helping us find stuff.

          the cost , but we are not used to downtown hotels

          Valet Parking. Positive attitude of staff.

          Internet access: too costly and cumbersome to sign in. (this will be the major reason to select a different hotel in Sydney)
