The hotel’s unparalleled location near the best of Sydney’s sites and attractions means you won’t have to travel far.  We are an easy walk to Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, the Sydney Harbour Bridge plus great shopping and restaurants.

The Rocks district is bustling with nightlife and entertainment choices. There’s always something to do!
