My wife and I and our four young children had a chance to get away for a few days and chose to visit Sydney. We have been living in Australia for about 7 months now (Canadians originally) and have come to appreciate how rare it is to find reasonable accommodation for a family of six. With respect to hotels, I used to travel extensively for work and have lived in many for up to 90 nights a year. While they tend to blur together these days (like a recent stay at The Star Gold Coast), this particular establishment succeeded in setting itself apart as something special. Our evening arrival was delayed a few hours by our airline, but after taking the train from the airport to nearby Museum Station (5 minute walk) we arrived. The staff were expecting us and took the time to show us around the unique layout of the place, including the most convenient way to get to our room. Shortly afterward, and closing in on 10pm on a Wednesday, they helped me find a nearby place to eat (in fact, the lady at the front desk actually came outside and found me a half-block away after I made a wrong turn in my search for pizza). Sydney itself exceeded all of our expectations, and while we spent the majority of our stay wandering the CBD and riding ferries, busses and trains, the room provided an excellent home base and place to wind down and recharge. There was more than enough space in the two bedroom (very comfortable mattresses) suite we had, including two full bathrooms (both with large, dual head showers) and a central living area with a full kitchen and additional sleeping area (for the kids). Wifi worked well, and we loved having Nickelodeon on the television for the kids. Hotel Stellar absolutely gets our full recommendation - so much so that we even attempted to book another stay in late February during our last night there (unfortunately sold out on the dates we were looking at, but I’ll keep a close eye out). less
