Everything was at your disposal. Front desk and Concierge were amazing! Hotel was beyond 5 star

The staff was excellent, but this is most definitely not a 5 star hotel. Forbes raing is bogus. Big stains in the carpet, and torn drapery linings. If you want any privacy while using the bathroom, forget it. No doors to the dressing area, and the toilet stall has only a glass shower door that does not latch. Very odd layout.

Highlight of our trip! This hotel is absolutely amazing. Very upscale and very high tech. The staff could not have been more helpful and gracious. Room was very comfortable and amenities top notch. If I were to say anything even slightly negative, I would say the shower, vanity area could do with a little more privacy. But still an excellent stay. I would stay here again, in a heartbeat.

From check in to check out everything was handled in a five star way. Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for TOP rooms and sevice

Was upgraded to a suite, and it was amazing. Great view of Darling harbour with the Sydney harbour bridge. The suite was very spacious with a generous wardrobe closet.
