Not expecting a lot but we were impressed. Excellent service from the complimentary bottle of bubbles for our 25th wedding anniversary to not charging for a meal that was served late. Convenient location to Central Station, easy access to Darling Square cafes and Darling Harbour, not too far from Town Hall and short train ride to Circular Quay. Stayed a week and could have stayed longer.
