New hotel, rooms are nice. The pool was a highlight, though busy when we arrived. We went the next morning when it was much emptier. Had drinks in the champagne bar, that was nice too. Location is right next to the light rail, easy to get to. Only thing worth noting is that the rooms on the side of the hotel (Barangaroo side anyway, not sure about the ICC side) are included in the darling harbour view category. It’s probably more of a partial harbour view, still really nice though. Maybe they should be categorised by darling harbour view, barangaroo view etc. I’m sure people would pay to get the full harbour view.

Good hotel but a few aspects let down the experience. First was the fact that we checked in at lunchtime and our room was not yet available - ok. Then we came back at 8pm to pick our keys up and then our luggage could not be located for 30 minutes. Also the room did not have a bath
