Recommended place to stay:
Four Seasons Hotel Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia|www.fourseasons.com|
Official star rating:
For many decades the Four Seasons has been the benchmark for five-star luxury in Sydney. An extensive make-over has lifted this hotel to dizzying new heights.
Its legendary service is now coupled with sleek, new interiors and an expanded food and drink offering, including sophisticated high teas at Mode Kitchen & Bar and a fabulous selection of barrel-aged cocktails at the hotel’s Grain Bar.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the dress circle location, which gives guests unrivalled views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay and Sydney Opera House.
The hotel is set in the northern end of the city’s CBD (Central Business District), surrounded by modern office buildings. The surrounding streets are pleasantly busy, but clean and very safe.
Just across the street is Circular Quay – a breathtakingly beautiful stretch of waterfront that includes the Bridge and Sydney Opera House.
Also opposite is ‘The Rocks’, Sydney’s original slum area which is now thoroughly gentrified and packed with cafes, old school pubs and small boutiques.
