Great central location to all of Sydneys main attractions. Bonus was the rooftop pool and spa where we could watch the cruise ships come and go and chill out after a hot day exploring Sydney.

Staff were extremely helpful and polite. Also catered for children really well. Pop up rooftop bar by the pool was a great way to spend Australia Day and watch entertainment and fireworks
