The hotel is lovely and close to where I was working, however since I was there pre-pandemic the added extras have stopped, which is disappointing e.g "loot bag", small wine and beer in bar fridge. I also booked a VIP package which was to include a free bottle of wine, but the hotel didn't provide it or knew about it.

We were disappointed for a number of reasons. Parking wasnt validated properly which caused issues when leaving, we were charged for breakfast we didnt have nor requested and we tried to go to the bar and didnt get service. Overpriced for the poor service recieved.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
I complained about the aircon the very first day but nothing properly was done untill it completely broke down and I had to change the room. Also you can't control the temp from room, everytime you have to call reception to adjust the temp. No late checkout option. My flight was delayed and had to leave the room at 12.

Elevator quiet and layout very good. Overall still a good choice and location for the Sydney experience. The room 409 we got was very noisy because it was the corner room and exposed to outside traffic. Dont go to sleep before 10 pm and do expect to be up at 6 am Some of the staff seemed new and were not sure how to check us in or to find the records on their system. We had paper copies to support our booking
