Just wondering if you're home yet, and how it went?
Hello, GUT, thanks again for all your help! We are home and had a wonderful time! The Meriton, Kent Street, was great! We didn't get really
early check-in, but went to the lounge and napped until about 11:30 AM, when Sam from Customer Service came up and said we'd been upgraded to a two bedroom suite and it was ready
. We were in 5307, which is actually 43 floors up (the check-in floor is the 10th). We faced southwest and could see the fireworks at Darling Harbor one night. We also could hear the work being done on George Street, but it wasn't as loud as it would have been on the other side of the hotel.
We went to Cole's Supermarket to stock up on a few things. We also went to Liquorland next door to Cole's! Both are only a block from the hotel. (Turn left out the front door, left again, go one block, Cole's is catty-corner and down the escalator). Don't waste your money at the convenience store on the corner, just walk another block to Cole's!
We took a cab from the airport to the hotel. It was rush hour and cost about $60.00 US. The cab from the hotel to the port was about $12.00 US.
If you have any questions I'll try to answer them
