I was in Sydney on business. On the one hand for me this hotel is super convenient being right next to my office which is great. Sadly that is unfortunately the best thing about it in terms of the real estate.
This hotel would not qualify as 5* anywhere in the world. The rooms are basically 3* but the bed is better than average. The bathrooms are certainly 3* with a weak shower head and toilets that connect to the wall with a VERY rusty huge pipe that is close to disgusting.
The lobby is dated and the ceiling is low - not a big deal for me but i know some people care about this. I also find it strange that this hotel has lobby that shuts after 11pm - very uncommon even in a 4* hotel.
The service good and generally helpful. The services such as room service were good but the fare not fantastic. The one very good thing was the deal on the movies which was a 24 hour wrap around all the movies you can watch for just under the price of 2 which is excellent for me and they had a wide range of all the of the latest holywood movies.
Overall if it were a 3* hotel and not costing 250 AUD per night it wouldb e fine. Instead you pay 5* pricing for a 3* or if I was being charitable basic 4* accommodation.
Stay at the Park Hyatt if you absolutely need 5* or go to the Westin or Intercontinental for better value
