Expert Review

This swank, 563-room hotel – formerly the ANA – was granted a $40 million facelift in 2003 and today draws an enthusiastic Asian crowd. With an enviable location just three blocks from Circular Quay, a range of room sizes and views is available, starting at 430 square feet; all have marble bathrooms with separate tub and shower, and modern furnishings with an Asian accent.  Almost every room has harbor views (half of them Darling Harbour), though none better than the hotel’s 36th-floor Blu Horizon bar, a fabulous perch for sunset – splash out by ordering the one-carat Diamond Martini for a cool A$10,000. There are eight food and beverage landings in all, including Café Mix, which has both a la carte and buffet menus prepared from separate Indian, Malaysian, Japanese, and Italian cooking stations. Additional guest amenities include an indoor pool, gym and spa. Rates include breakfast & airport transfers.
