Snag a room with balcony or upgrade yourself to a Junior Suite.
Planning a weekend in Sydney and looking for something in the heart of the CBD? You can't go past the Novotel Sydney City Centre hotel, which has just reopened after a $20 million facelift. Located on York Street, just a few minutes' walk from Circular Quay in one direction and the buzzing dining precinct of Barangaroo in the other, the 22-storey hotel boasts a stunning lobby (pictured) with eye-catching artworks and 283 rooms.
Check into the Superior King with Balcony Room if you want to let the fresh breeze in, or - like me - make yourself comfortable in the spacious Junior Suite with a king-sized bed, separate sitting area, kitchenette and double-glazed windows that completely block out the sounds of the city.
Just don't forget to book a table at the lobby-level Birdie restaurant, where chef John Lyons impresses diners with dishes like the butter-soft T-bone with house-made mustard. Even if you're not staying at the hotel, light-filled Birdie is worth a visit. novotelsydneycitycentre.com.au
