    Profile: Sydney Central Business District

    No visit to Sydney CBD, in the vibrant heart of the downtown area, would be complete without stopping off to explore one of its several parks. At Hyde Park, you can visit the stunning Archibald fountain and the ANZAC War Memorial, while the Royal Botanic Gardens features an oasis of landscaped gardens and colorful wildlife.

    This neighborhood boasts an assortment of soaring skyscrapers such as Sydney Tower, as well as some of Australia’s oldest buildings. Heritage-listed buildings include the historic St Andrew’s Cathedral, built in Gothic Revival style, as well as nearby Sydney Town Hall and the Queen Victoria Building.

      Friendly staff, lovely restaurants. Rooms are a bit dated, but very clean and comfortable. I think there is a pillow menu which we should have used because our pillows were not great - my husband had to fold his over a few times. Hotel is in a great location - we enjoyed our stay.

      Room and staff were good but we got woken twice with hammers. It was annoying, I understand that construction was going on but we couldn’t get back to sleep.
