What are some hotels close to the cruise ship terminal?First question: Which cruise ship terminal?
We will be on the HAL' s Oosterdam. I have no idea what terminal she would use.If your cruise is Jan 5 2014, Oosterdam's scheduled to board at the OPT and return to White Bay 5 ;
This question has probably been asked dozens of time before, so forgive me. What are some hotels close to the cruise ship terminal?Good hotel that gets good reviews and has rooms bigger than average ( in fact for the price mentioned at some of the hotels above you can get a 1 bedroom hotel/apartment room) is The Rendezvous Sydey The Rocks which is one street back from the road the OPT is on and about a 10 minute walk.
We love the Four Seasons at Circular Quay. If you book early enough you usually get a much better rate than later in the year.I would agree the prices do go up. Better to making a booking that you have the option of cancelling, and if a better deal comes up cancel the first booking. We really liked the Marriott at Circular Quay. We actually found the prices went down for last December, which was the opposite 3 years earlier.
I always check prices throughout the year and if they come down, then I cancel and rebook but lately I have found that the prices seem to go up rather than down.
Off the top of my head,We spent five nights at the Old Sydney Holiday Inn in the Rocks with an IHG friends and family rate that saved considerably. Details: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hotel...te-2013-a.html
Old Sydney Holiday Inn
Just google Sydney hotels Rocks/Circular Quay and you will find quite a few.
Did you get a good deal?Yes I did, but I booked it a long way out.
