Flying to the other side of the world can easily take its toll! Being cooped up in a metal tube for 21 hours or so will give even the most seasoned of travellers a touch of cabin fever and you will need some time to adjust to the time difference when you arrive. Do the adjusting in the best possible way by booking a stay at some of the most luxurious accommodation to be found in and around the Harbour City.
Lay your head in the heart of the action with a stay at the Pullman Quay where you can get the best of both worlds. Located between the exciting East Circular Quay of the iconic harbour and alongside the serenity of the Royal Botanic Gardens, you will be perfectly placed for a quiet and relaxing break while only being steps away from a range of amazing cultural and nightlife options. There are no room at the Pullman, only spacious suites that all provide balconies and fully equipped gourmet kitchens for discerning travellers. Chose between a Garden view Suite for peaceful views of the world renowned Botanical Gardens or a Harbour view suite where you can wake up to the grace and beauty of the opera house.
