Great Hotel!

I read all of the reviews prior to booking this hotel... To sum it up, I don't think you'll find much better for the price in Sydney. The location is perfect! Right next to the train/monorail you need to get the big spots, bus stop for outlying locations such as Bondi, and near a food court for less expensive dining options. By American standards my actual sleeping area may have been a tad small, but the bathroom was unbelievable! Full tub and glass shower-awesome. To all those that complained about the bed, I'm not sure what to say. Yes, it is firm, but they have the pillow menu right by the bed to help correct that. Fitness center, spa, pool, sauna are wonderful! Used daily while I was there. Can't comment on the restaurant, as it is a tad pricey and I avoided. Overall, a perfect location in Sydney.

Don't get off at the Town Square train station. Take the St. James station to/from the airport. It's only about a block farther walk to the hotel and will save you a few bucks.
