Grand Harbour View room is the best view in Sydney. Be sure to get Grand Harbour View though and check your reservation clearly. A great Hotel overall with the level 36 bar a great place for an afternoon drink.

There are a number of hi rise hotels overlooking Sydney Harbour and the Shangri La is certainly one of the best. The location is superb and the rooms with harbour views are outstanding, whether or not you have a glimpse of the iconic bridge, which some certainly do. The stand out factor for me was the quality of the staff...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
