I live in Sydney, but that's not to say I haven't tried a few of her hotels—I've even worked in some. The Sebel Pier One is definitely my pick.
It's got comfortable, modern rooms and the thing I love most about good hotels: a pillow menu (who doesn't love a good feather pillow!). Also, I never underestimate the beauty of being able to throw open a window—a luxury that so many Sydney hotels simply don’t offer.
Depending on your room type, you can have a pick of views and it's literally right around the corner from the Rocks, the Harbour Bridge, and the beautiful Sydney Opera House.
I always appreciate how beautiful my city is, but a little getaway in a place like this just reiterates why I fell in love with her in the first place.
