Right in amongst the Rocks in Sydney this Obsetvatory bar on 36th floor is absolutely worth a visit. Aim for afternoon to dusk would be great for th he best views across the harbour...just amazing. We had champagne and nuts etc were provided on each table. West side is hot in the afternoon so good to avoid then.

My husband and I stayed overnight and had a lovely experience. Our room had the most amazing view! The room was spacious and the bed and pillows were comfortable. We were greeted with a bottle of French champagne. The buffet breakfast was the best we have had at a luxury hotel. The only thing we were not too happy about...

Shangri-La Sydney is an icon. One of the best places to stay to get a real feel for the city. It's highly recommended to upgrade to a club room. The views are stunning and the food is outstanding. Alll food and beverage outlets are worth a visit.

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.
