Amazing service, excellent location

Two friends and I recently spent 3 fabulous weeks at the Shangri-la hotel in Sydney, I can't say enough about the hotel staff, especially the staff of the Horizon Club. The Club is an excellent feature, with an amazing staff. They treated us like family and friends, gave us wonderful recommendations, efficiently made any reservations we needed, and provided all the extras that made our stay so wonderful, from umbrellas to outlet adapters to advice on shortcuts and shopping. And that's not to mention the wonderful daily breakfasts, tea service and happy hours. The hotel is in a lovely location, just far enough off the beaten path to be quiet, but close enough to everything to be convenient. And the views are out of this world! I highly recommend the Shangri-la and can't wait to visit there again!

Shangri-La Hotel Sydney was AMAZING!

Check-in was easy. We requested a room above the 20th floor and that was granted. Huge room with living room and beautiful bathroom. Full bottle of chilled champagne waiting for us in the room (complimentary). Plate of chocolates also waiting for us by the champagne. No charges for things like internet, pool, hot tub, gym. Excellent service. Just an amazing experience!

Shangri-La Sydney

We were in Sydney for our first vacation there. We will DEFINITELY return, and when we do, we will stay at Shangri La. We also spent a few nights at Marriott at the Harbour. Not only was Shangri La far less expensive, it was MUCH better in every way! Can we say VIEW? wowee! and the amenities in the room: never seen so many in any hotel, ever! Even high end laundry powder for one's hand wash. All high quality amenities like L'Occitane toiletries, toothpaste and brush, razor, comb, bath salts even. Fully stocked desk, too. very comfy bed. The Shangri La had the best of EVERYTHING. if you go to Sydney, stay there! And when you do, go to the top floor of the hotel to the bar for a night cap. Stunning views and yummy cocktails. Perfectly located, too!

Great overnight before heading home

Simply great. This is more like Shangri-La I expected. Stayed at one in Cains for a few days before this one, the Cains was a bit disappointing. This one gave me confidence to SL back, nice :).
