For business The Observatory, Sydney. I've always found that even if you're in a hotel chain (which this is) you get big differences in standards. Located opposite Sydney harbour, this is one of the best hotels I've been to, with service far above anything I've experienced. The style is old-world meets modernity. On the old-fashioned front, the Observatory suits my bookworm tendencies; it has a library with real books that you can take out and read. The modernity lies in how it caters for business guests and the way it all works so smoothly. Internet connections are instant and without high call charges. For me, though, the room - which is wonderfully decorated - is always less important than the restaurant. This always seems to be open.
