By the way, Sydney’s famed Japanese restaurant, Tetsuya’s is just across the road & you’ll want to book well in advance to secure a table there. Which, is 100% worth it!
Luxury Self Contained Sydney Accommodation
There’s an array of fully serviced five star suites to select from here. I stayed in the super sleek One Bedroom Apartment which is ideal for corporate travellers, couples and those seeking a classy ‘long stay’ city vacation accommodation option. The fully furnished apartment was aesthetically impressive and completely functional (win, win) with a spacious lay out that boasted separate living, dining, bedroom and study areas.
Bonus points for the deep sleep experience in the comfy king sized bed -as much as that Sydney city skyline view is delightful the total block out blinds were a blessing come morn.
I also had to the opportunity to inspect the luxury penthouse apartments & as the name suggests no expense has been spared in creating this sophisticated space – the panoramic city views are outstanding from the apex penthouse vantage point. It features a state of the art home entertainment system, a modern well-equipped kitchen, floor to ceiling windows and plush furnishings that make for a perfect place to celebrate your most special event. The penthouse suite is a verified example of luxe city living done right.

The decadent breakfast buffet is served on the 10th floor daily and features a terrific selection of continental breakfast offerings plus a la carte options. Come down to the sophisticated mezzanine area and enjoy a top quality cup of java as you sample your way through the ample breakfast choices and flick through (as I do) the daily newspapers.
