Sheraton Grand Hyde Park, Sydney, Australia
While it may not enjoy the harbourside position of some of its peers, Sydney's largest five-star hotel does offer swish accommodation (it was fully renovated in 2018) and proximity to shops, restaurants, museums and nightlife. It caters for a steady flow of business travellers who relish its location close to the financial district. Across the road is Hyde Park - refreshing green space in the city centre. It's a 20-minute walk to The Opera House but you get to see plenty of the city on the way. Unusually for a hotel of this standard the main restaurant is a buffet, but the choice of seafood is exceptional. There's an indoor rooftop pool with city and harbour views, and a day spa.
An airbridge at the rear links the hotel to shopping arcades, and you can find authentic Italian food at nearby Alberto's Lounge, by Hyde Park.
City-centre hotel near the nightlife of King's Cross, 20 minutes' walk from the harbour.
By plane: flights to Sydney from London take around 24 hours with a stop in Dubai or Darwin. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Parking on-site costs AUD60 per day. skyscanner.com
