The Four Seasons Hotel is a one-stop destination – as we found out on a weekend staycation – you really don’t have to leave the hotel for anything!
While the hotel appears to be a mecca for business travellers it really pulls out all the stops for travellers just wanting to relax. One night felt like a week’s holiday.
From the moment we arrived the customer service was exceptional. Check-in was a breeze and our room was complemented by an eclectic collection of photography.
The room was spotlessly clean and smelled divine. It really exuded the ‘wow’ factor and had glorious panoramic views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge – what a backdrop!
As we looked around and unpacked, the room just kept exceeding our expectations of luxury. The bathroom was indulgent and spacious with a gorgeous large bathtub. A nice touch was that the toiletries are deluxe size, L’Occitane.
The room also featured a walk in wardrobe and a functional office area with complimentary Internet.
The bed is probably one of the best we have ever slept in.
During the day we enjoyed the beautiful swimming pool and sundeck – it was also the perfect place for an afternoon cocktail to finish off a perfect Sydney afternoon. We also enjoyed the steam room, sauna and the gymnasium.
We booked access to the Executive Club, which we used for breakfast, cold drinks during the day, and evening cocktails. The club was buzzing and yet never appeared to be overcrowded and, we managed a lovely harbor view table each time we entered.
The onsite restaurant, Kable’s, serves a delicious Australian menu with an extremely large selection of Australian wines and cocktails and our Lobster Ravioli, sublime.
In total the hotel offers 531 guestrooms all equipped with ultra modern facilities, Internet access, flat screen TV and DVD player. The hotel has recently completed the final phase of a two-year refurbishment and is ideally located in George Street, just a short walk from the city’s shopping and business centres and Circular Quay.
