Having had a very disappointing stay at the Sydney Four Seasons a couple of weeks beforehand I was not quite sure what to expect from the Shangri-La, however it was a much better experience.
Check-in was quick an courteous - rooms were large and with a great view (and much cheaper than tiny rooms at four seasons!) and also very quiet - we had a grand harbour view room. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was large, clean and luxuriously furnished.
The only negative point was the service at the bar on the top floor - I went up for a nightcap and was blanked by at least 3 members of staff as I stood waiting at the door for a table - eventually I had to ask one if I was really invisible! The staff in the bar were some of the rudest and most arrogant people I have ever met and certainly should not be working in the 'hospitality' business..
However, as long as you do not go to the bar the hotel is very good and I would certainly recommend it.
