A good one night

Location, view, quietness
I stayed there for one night. The room was super clean and quiet, the shower was amazing, the view to the opera house was stunning and the super speed free internet WiFi made me happy. However, there were some things I didn't like: 1) The bed was too soft. Soft supposed to be relaxing but too much softens made the bed uncomfortable. 2) the elevator is a little bit slow 3) The spa was very relaxing but it contained too much chlorine. Even after I took a shower I smelled it on my body.

Self Indulgent Pampering

Exquisite Decor, Obliging Staff, Stunning Views
Thankyou so much Shangri-la for the most restful self indulgent couple of days. The décor was gorgeous. The staff obviously very carefully selected, beautifully groomed, catered to everyone's needs and prepared to go the extra mile. The room was impeccably clean. I cannot wait to....indulge again soon, Thanks Agoda and Shrangri-la

Fantastic hotel, ogreat service, outstanding views

View, service, location
Great hotel, very well positioned to take the most of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge views. Outstanding service, great interior. Hotel was very busy and the recration area felt a bit small due to everyone wanting to use it. SPA service was outstanding.

Just another hotel...

check in staff, pillows, reception area
Booked in for one night whilst in Sydney, found it to be good - ordinary hotel room with brown typical hotel decor, bathroom a little nicer than a 4 star hotel. I think the room we booked wasn't really expensive enough to be anything special (discounted to $355 per night). We were darling harbour side (not circular quay - opera house/harbour bridge) and the view was good. Check in staff were welcoming and gave our daughter a soft toy which was very sweet. A pleasant but ordinary experience. It was nice to feel welcomed with a small child (some hotels are not entirely welcoming of young children at all). Vegetarian/vegan options non-existent in the Mix Cafe (the one star relates to this - can't leave the rating empty) and as we had our child with us felt like the Blue Bar was not really going to work for us. Can't comment on dining as we ate at a restaurant in the Rocks - the one star is for lack of vegetarian/vegan options available. Location of hotel is great - a nice stroll down to circular quay through the rocks.
