A great stay

Location, views, large room
Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. Loved the large window so we could enjoy the water view.

Superb location and view

Location, view and horizon benefits.
I stayed for two days with plans to attend Turandot at the Sydney Opera House. The location was the main reason for choosing this hotel and it was a perfect 10 minute walk to the opera house. I opted to upgrade to a horizon club room and the view was stunning on the 35th floor. The benefits from horizon club are excellent and relaxing on the 30th floor with 5 story windows with unobstructed views on the harbour bridge and opera house was breathtaking. My only complaint was an individual staff member performing poorly.

Pleasant stay but uphill walk is uncomfortable

View, efficient service, and comfortable bed
Very pleasant with friendly and service oriented staff. Good view. Only complain is the uphill walk to the hotel.

Comfort and style

Fine dining, good views from 36th floor, name of the hotel
It was a plessant stay. My husband had a good rest in the rooms. The food is good. The staff are helpful.

Great location, but missing X factor.

The location, the amenities and the size of the rooms.
Enjoyable but the windows could do with a thorough clean. When the sun was shining in it was hard to see out. When you are paying extra for the view (we booked the Opera House View room) it's a bit frustrating. Also the check in process was very slow and busy. The size of the rooms were very spacious which was nice.

Fantastic location

View, service and comfort
I stayed here with my girlfriend for a weekend away. Apart from a delay of 2 hours whilst we waited for our room to be ready, we thoroughly enjoy our time at the motel. The view from our room was breathtaking and well worth the money.

Poor Staff Performance

The view of the room overseeing the Harbour Bridge and Opera House are excellent
The Staff in Shangri-La doesn't make me feel like I am staying in a 5 Stars hotel

the price is not worth

Cleanliness, greetings, room size
We requested a high floor opera house view hotel, but unfortunately we got a 5th floor hotel. I know this room type is ranged from 4th to 21st. We reached there around 1230pm but they said the room is not ready. So I supposed they will fulfill my request.
