What a great weekend! The location is fantastic and the converted woodshed makes a great backdrop for an art hotel. The free happy hour is a nice touch and the atmosphere was great. Looking for an excuse to stay again.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
