Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney

Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This bright, contemporary luxury hotel, located in the Central Business District, just south of The Rocks and Circular Quay, reflects Sydney's personality: relaxed and stylish. The bi-level lobby/lounge area features floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. The minimalist rooms have minibars, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and (in some) beautiful harbor or city views -- but a few are showing minor wear, and lower-level rooms look plain. One of the best features of the rooms are the modern tile bathrooms, which have walk-in showers and separate large soaking tubs. Outside the rooms, the hotel has two trendy restaurants and two bars, a tiny fitness center, a small but contemporary spa, and an attractive indoor pool. For business travelers, there are two large conference spaces that can accommodate up to 280 guests; leisure travelers will likely appreciate the location, within walking distance to popular sights.
The Grace Hotel Sydney

The Grace Hotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The historic, luxurious Grace Hotel is known for its beautiful Art Deco style, especially in the hotel's lobby. The rooms, however, lack similar charm. While spacious and comfortable, the rooms are decorated in a plain, classic style, with dark wood furniture, white linens, and beige walls. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are sleek and modern with lots of marble and glass rainfall showers. Some guests who have stayed in interior-facing rooms complain of a lack of light -- but these interior rooms also tend to be the quietest of the bunch, so it's a tradeoff. Most guests stay here for the location -- the hotel is right in the middle of Sydney's Central Business District, within walking distance of many attractions. The convenient location and abundant meeting space make it a popular pick with business travelers. But for a luxury hotel, the amenities could be more extensive: There is a rooftop complex with small indoor pool, spa, and fitness center, but there is no quality restaurant on the property -- just a cafe, a bar, and a brasserie that serves a breakfast and lunch buffet.
Swissotel Sydney

Swissotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The luxurious Swissotel Sydney is located in the Central Business District, close to the Pitt Street Mall and Queen Victoria Building. The layout of the property is a bit of a hassle, as guests must take two elevators -- the first to the eighth floor reception desk, the second to their rooms. The 359 rooms are what you'd expect from an upscale chain -- contemporary and spacious, and about on par with those at a typical Westin or Marriott. Bathrooms are above average, with bathtubs and separate showers, and some rooms have excellent city views. Executive level rooms come with extra perks, including free breakfast, nightly drinks, and Wi-Fi. JPB restaurant offers Australian cuisine in a fine dining setting, while the Crossroads Bar is a stylish, casual place for high tea, cocktails and light snacks. Hyrbrid car drivers also receive free valet parking.
Park 8 Hotel

Park 8 Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Park 8 offers hip, apartment-style rooms in Sydney's Central Business District. The 36 rooms have 60s-inspired, minimalist decor, as well as kitchenettes with mini-fridges and electric kettles. The rooms are large, and go up in price from standard to the deluxe to the loft room, a two-level space with lots of light. Bathrooms are bright and sleek with vessel sinks, and some have free-standing tubs. The location of the hotel is fantastic for seeing Sydney, and the price is usually fair.
Mantra 2 Bond Street

Mantra 2 Bond Street Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Mantra 2 Bond Street is a high-end, modern hotel located on the corner of bustling George St. in Sydney's Central Business District. The atmosphere is warm and sophisticated, and the hotel offers guests a wide variety of spacious accommodations, from studios and apartments to suites and penthouses. Many of the 170 rooms come with washers and dryers, fully equipped kitchens, stereo systems, and private balconies, making them suitable for extended stays. Wi-Fi and parking are not free, however. The luxurious rooftop pool provides stunning, panoramic views of the area. There’s one café on-site, but the gym is small and there is no business center.
Pensione Hotel Sydney

Pensione Hotel Sydney Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Located on the fringe of the Chinatown district, this upper-middle-range, 72-room boutique has a historic facade and modern interiors. Each of the 68 rooms are small but clean and filled with character; they feature crisp white bedding, whimsical prints, and flat-screen TVs. Sleek bathrooms offer stall showers complete with rainforest showerheads. One big perk here is the guest lounge with comfy seating, a small kitchenette, computers for guest use, vending machines, and laundry facilities. It's a small property, so guests shouldn't expect much else in the way of amenities.
The York by Swiss-Belhotel International

The York by Swiss-Belhotel International Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The York by Swiss-Belhotel is centrally located, close to many main attractions, public transportation, and Sydney’s Central Business District. The hotel is well suited for business travelers, but is especially ideal for extended stays and families. All 150 apartment-style rooms are spacious and fully equipped with nice “home away from home” amenities, such as kitchens, washers and dryers, separate baths and showers, dining and lounge areas, (pricey) Internet access, and open-air balconies (though not all afford good views of the city). While all units are clean and comfortable, some are in much better condition than others, with newer furnishings and appliances, and more stylish decor. The older rooms feel basic and outdated. On-site, there’s a little garden, outdoor heated pool, and a Japanese noodle bar.
Mantra on Kent

Mantra on Kent Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The modern Mantra on Kent (formerly Pacific International Suites) is right by Cockle Bay Wharf and Darling Harbor, on the western border of the Central Business District. While the 105 studios and apartments are comfortable and roomy, they're bland, with the drab colors, basic furnishing, and little personality. On the bright side, the rooms do come with many “home away from home” amenities such as fully equipped kitchens, lounge and dining areas, laundry facilities and DVD players. Overall, the hotel’s location is truly its best attribute; the property lacks some basic features such as a gym and business center, and the restaurant is only open for breakfast.
