Over the past few years my travels have been more about “see more, spend less” which lead to a lot of run down hostels and tiny hotel rooms. This year I wanted to slow down my travels, see more of my home country and spend more to have a comfortable, hassle free stay.
Shangri – La Sydney
Being my first trip since the beginning of COVID-19, for this journey I wanted to take more time to switch off, slow down and unwind. Thus began the search for Hotels in the CBD, which lead me to three options, the Park Hyatt, Pier One and the Shangri-la.
The Shangri-La Sydney is located in the popular Rocks district of Circular Quay, a minutes walk from Sydney Harbour Bridge with rolling views of the Opera House, making it the perfect location for exploring all that Sydney has to offer.
Once you have arrived at the Shangri-La Sydney you are greeted by the valet who will look after you car and bags while you walk into the vast marble foyer for check in. The staff are exceptionally friendly and even gave me a complimentary upgrade to a high suite with free sparkling and dessert.
The room was the superior Opera House View which came complete with astonishing views, a bathtub and a luscious bed. A short elevator ride from the room lead to the Blu Bar, the only place in Sydney that offers panoramic views of the Sydney CBD.
To book a room at The Shangri-La Sydney, go through their website for the most accurate prices and to support the business directly.
