Shangri-La Hotel

Ideally located between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, this is another five-star spot with undeniably breathtaking views. And, what’s more, the views are there from every room, which is one reason for it’s popularity. Rooms here are some of the largest in the city and service remains a major priority, with lots of extra touches designed to maintain a loyal base of regulars. The Horizon Club executive lounge on the 30th floor, with its towering 18m (60ft) glass atrium, comes at a premium but with complimentary breakfast and snacks and business facilities it’s well worth it.

The swanky Blu Bar on 36 offers a wide selection of cocktails, while Altitude Restaurant on the 36th floor offers unbeatable picture-postcard views of the the harbour, the bridge and the Opera House. Decor is a mix of modern style with classic hotel chic, but really you don’t look at the furniture with views like these. There’s also a gym and indoor swimming pool.
