A boutique-styled historical building built in 1887, The Russell Hotel is located near most of the things people come to Sydney to see. The Royal Botanical Gardens, the famous Circular Quay, the historic Rocks district, and the Sydney Harbor Bridge are all easily accessible from the front entrance of this quaint building. For an interesting day out that will certainly result in a story or two, be sure to check out BridgeClimb, where visitors actually climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge and are rewarded with stunning 360-degree views of the harbor and city. A world of restaurant and dining opportunities await just steps from the lobby. An out-of-the-ordinary accommodation, The Russell Hotel is a great find in a prime location.
