The breakfast was excellent. Great variety, including some Japanese fare that was hard to identify and remained untouched by my wife and I! The downstairs bar had brewed coffee "on tap" and also provided a nice area to sit and read.
After returning from seeing the Lion King, we found that Sydney had all but closed (10pm on Sunday!) but the hotel's piano bar had a very helpful bartender who organised some food. (well, it was too early to eat before the show and afterwards, nothing was open!)
I would recommend this hotel for its comfortable beds in reasonably sized rooms and most of all for its friendly and helpful staff! Interestingly we had a room near the lift, but could only vaguely hear a wooshing noise that sounded like wind blowing. It was not enough of a problem to disturb sleep, and I am a light sleeper! The rooms are well insulated for sound. (So, if you get up to mischief, you can make a bit of noise!) Our room was one of the more expensive Parkview rooms. The park was not impressive, but it was probably better than looking directly into the office blocks opposite!
We would definitely stay here again. The location was ideal for exploring all that Sydney had to offer, and the price was reasonable by comparison with other hotels in the area. Having spent the weekend in Sydney, I would certainly stay Mid City again rather than the Rocks (which was generally too expensive anyway!) or Darling Harbour. Staying at the Harbour would really lock you into catching the monorail or water taxis to get around. It was at one end of the tourist trail.
