Amazing view, Great staff, great customer service. Food was awesome.
The bathroom is too old. I couldn&#39;t fit in the bath tub for a bath. We didn&#39;t like it at all. Old knobs, old switches, nothing is modern in the bathroom.

We liked the location of the room especially having a window that wrapped around the corner with additional views. Being close to Circular Quay trains, light rail and ferries was very convenient.
The bathroom definitely needed updating. The additional charge of $8 for room service just to be delivered and not having restaurants opened for a nice lunch or dinner was disappointing especially on ...
