Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the 2000 Olympic Games put it on the map as one of the most vibrant and most modern cities in the world. Any trip to Sydney is an adventure and with some of the most beautiful beaches right on its doorstep, this city has so much to offer. The greater city of Sydney is actually a very large area and choosing a hotel is something you need to do very carefully. Public transport is good, but it can be slow and being close to where you want to be is probably the most important factor.

The first and most obvious choice is hotels around Circular Quay. Circular Quay is the heart of the city and one of the major interchanges where trains, buses and ferries meet. Its also where Sydney;s 2 most famous landmarks are located - The Sydney Opera House and The Sydney Harbor Bridge. This area is vibrant and truly some of the best views you will ever get from a hotel room. The downside is that hotel rooms overlooking Sydney harbor comes at a price.

Hotels further in the city are much more suited to business travelers and hey are usually less expensive. Darling Harbor is a great choice as it mixes a great view with being right in the hub of the city. Darling Harbor has hundreds of pubs, clubs and restaurants along the water's edge and during summer its as vibrant and alive as the city gets.

If you are looking for something a bit more quite, then its well worth looking into hotels looking out over the Royal Botanic Gardens (right behind the Sydney Opera House). Some of these hotels have incredible vies and includes ocean views out towards The Heads.

If you don't feel like dealing with the hustle and bustle of the city, why not head out to the Northern Beaches. Its only a short ferry ride over to Manly where you can find 2 major hotels on the beach front with a number of smaller boutique hotels and guest houses.
