I stayed at the Amora Jamison for two nights so I could see a bit of Sydney before continuing on to New Caledonia to visit a friend and vacation there. The hotel staff were excellent and the room was spotless and surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of the city. Since the Opera House and Harbour Bridge were must-see items, I appreciated the fact that they were within easy walking distance. There is also lots of restaurants, pubs, and shopping centres along the way, so you could essentially find anything you were looking for. I took a tour that included a harbour lunch cruise, and the Circular Quay where the cruise boat and water-taxi`s arrive & depart is only two blocks away. Perfect! The only complaint (or irritation) I had with my stay there was being charged an additional $1.80 AU for a local call to confirm my harbour tour, and the fact that when I had the munchies late in the evening, they wanted $6.00 AU for a tiny bag of potatoe chips that was available along with the similarly ridiculous priced items in the bar fridge. Maybe it`s just my way of thinking, but I resented them price-gouging their guests.

Shopping hint

Buy your late-night snacks and beverages elsewhere and bring them to your room.

Best kept secret??

Would recommend Thu, Sep 3, 2009
Mixed reviews. Obviously this hotel is geared for the business traveler. There are no big amenities, like pool or fitness center. The small amenities would nickel and dime you to death. The charges for cleaning, and internet were ridiculous! It's clear that the typical guest isn't picking up the tab for this hotel. The rooms are very small and the internet isnt wireless, so you must sit at the desk to achieve any correspondence. and electrical outlets... what a mess.

Amora Jamison Sydney Australia

Would recommend Thu, Aug 20, 2009
My boyfriend and I took a trip to Sydney to celebrate my promotion. I emailed the hotel ahead of time and they gave us a beautiful corner room with a spectacular view on the 27th floor--and had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us! It doesn't get better than that! We asked several different concierges about dinner restaurant suggestions and their 3 recommendations were superb for our tastes.

Dining

A funky, fashionable, very "Sydney" restaurant called Steel Bar and Grill is a 5 minute walk from the Amora. We were booked in by the concierge and had a cocktail in the outdoor seating area first--the cocktail menu is very creative and the "Pink Lady" was delicious. We were sat at our table and the sommelier came up and recommended a wine for us. We started with wood-fired calamari which was fantastic. Our entrees were Veal Cutlet and I had the Pan Roasted Snapper. My boyfriend and I have been in hospitality for 18 and 13 years respectivley and are very particular and picky about food and wine and Steel delivered above and beyond. The staff were very personable and friendly and stood chatting away with us very naturally. I would recommend this restaurant to young couples who love well-thought out, exceptionally fresh and flavored modern food. It is great for people watching and the cocktail menu is fantastic. I would probably not recommend it to people with children or people who do not attempt "adventure" in food.

First-Class Service, First-Rate Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jul 28, 2009
We spent about ten nights at the Amora Jamison, and because we were there for a relatively long time, we were given a free upgrade from a premium king to a park suite. I cannot say enough good things about the guest services (mainly the concierge and bellman staff); they are the most amicable and helpful people whom I have ever met in a hotel--and I have stayed in scores of hotels over the years. The staff at the Jamison appear to go out of their way to make you feel at home, and we were so grateful for that treatment--felt special, really. The location is ideal to shopping, the Circular Quay, the Rocks, and the Opera House, as well as outstanding restaurants. Finally, the price we got on Orbitz was fantastic for the quality and service we received! Without a doubt, we would recommend and return to the Amora Jamison Hotel in lovely, romantic Sydney.

Quick trip to Sydney

Would recommend Sat, Jul 25, 2009
After a long flight from the US, I was very pleased to receive an offer to register at 8:00 am, rather than having to wait for normal afternoon check-in. Because no king rooms were available at that time, I willingly accepted a two twin room. The very nice trade off (in addition to the early check in) was a nice high floor, city view room - which given the excellent per night rate of $124, was quite nice. The only real negative was a late (by a half hour) wake up call - which could have had a costly outcome (cab vs bus shuttle), had I not also set the alarm clock.

Attractions

10 - 15minute leisurely walk Circular Quay(boat tours), the Rocks, the Opera House.

superb service, location, and taste

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2009
Very elegant hotel, especially rooms. Very large bathroom with separate tub and shower. Excellent bed. Two very small problems in the room were repaired within (literally) minutes. Excellent location for major tourist and business sites in Sydney. Excellent staff. We strongly recommend this hotel.

Best Value in Sydney

Would recommend Wed, Jul 1, 2009
This hotel was a last minute replacement for unsatisfactory accommodations elsewhere. I can not speak highly enough of this hotel. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are large, the bathrooms are first class, and the location is quiet yet close to everything you want or need. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nightlife hint

Darling Harbour has great bars and a vibrant nightlife and is a downhill walk from the hotel.
