Very nice hotel and great value. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. I had an emergency last minute booking on the day and even though they were very full, they accepted along with a free upgrade to a harbour side view.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

There are airport transfer shuttle buses called ‘readytogo’ or there are taxis. If you contact the hotel concierge they can arrange a transfer.
