Premiere Room next to club level lounge smells

Pros: The view
Cons: Clean carpets by service entry and have checkin staff be more truthful about the premiere room being next to service entry. Food quality is just ok.
Location: It’s on a hill, so after a long day of sightseeing its a tough walk back. The harbor view was fantastic. It’s close to the opera house and the rocks.
I reserved a club premiere Harbour view room expecting a really nice experience. When I checked in I was told the room was on the same floor as the club lounge and would be very convenient access. What she didn’t tell me was that the room was next to the service entrance of the lounge which meant smelly hallway carpet as we entered the room and noise from the service carts. The room also had a little bit of a smell. The furniture of room and club lounge should be replaced. They are worn out. The food quality can be better in the club lounge. Great views of the harbor but windows are dirty. Having views of the harbor and bridge also means being next to freeway, but I did not hear much noise from the freeway.

Staff was very friendly.

Pros: Quiet
Cons: expensive breakfast
My wife required a handicap room. I used the shower first and nearly fell because the floor in the shower area was very slippery when wet and bare feet. Had I given my wife a shower first I am sure we both would have fallen. I requested rubber bath mats to cover the floor in the shower area. I reminded the clerk at check out of the condition but they seemed unconcerned about future accidents happening in the shower.

A first class hotel

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Hotel was lovely, just be prepared to climb up the Rocks to get to it. A great view of Darling Harbor - not Sydney Opera House on our side, but plenty of action.
