Metro Hotel Sydney Central--business and pleasure as usual
Just minutes from the vibrant Central Business District and the Darling Harbour, from the Metro Hotel Sydney Central, attractions like the Cockle Bay Wharf, Star City Casino, Sydney Entertainment Centre, Paddy's Markets and the city's dining and cinema districts are all within easy reach. For business guests, the Metro Hotel, located on the corner of Pitt and Campbell Streets directly opposite the Capitol Theatre, is a short walk to all major corporate and government offices as wells as to one of the many national or international conferences and trade shows at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
For that matter, conferences, workshops, banquets and weddings up to140 attendees are well-accommodated on the premises with an "all in one" service packaged in professionalism. Located on the first floor, the Metro Hotel Sydney Central Conference/Function Room is located with access available via the stairs in the reception area or direct external access from Pitt Street. The room offers a pre-function gathering area right outside the function room with space for a breakout area or simply just a registration table.
Wireless internet throughout the hotel, laundry and dry cleaning services, a complimentary newspaper and Smart Bar vending machine make amenities plentiful for a centrally located hotel with such affordable rates. The unheated swimming pool on the roof provides a welcome break. Public transportation to anywhere within the city or outlying areas is conveniently close to the hotel with Town Hall Station, Central Station and the Coach Terminal all just a short walk. Metro Light Rail and Monorail services are just out the door and buses to all parts of the city are a block away on George Street.
World famous icons of the Sydney, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge lie within sight of the Metro Hotel Sydney Central. The Circular Quay, the original point of landing for Australia's first settlers, still serves as the stepping off point for the exploration of all that Sydney has to offer. Before boarding the ferries to many other points such as Bondi and Manley Beaches, the Aquarium and other sites around the Quay provide a variety of entertainment and distractions.
The historic Rocks Point District is the site of the original settlers of Sydney, an area of cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, a story around every corner, a trip back in time but with the warehouses converted to boutique shops, restaurants and galleries, creating new tales for the modern day. The interactive Discovery Museum delights children and adults alike. The open air market on the weekends is full of arts and crafts, live music and a magical atmosphere reminiscent of the centuries of its history.
Celebrating 30 years, the Sydney Tower Shopping Centre spikes upwards dramatically out of a complex of stores and restaurants, cinemas, laser and bowling amusements. At 286 meters above it all, the Tower offers a Skywalk that suspends the breath with each step over a glass floor, Sydney's highest and most dramatic view of the immense and vibrant Harbour so far below.
Easy to spot from so high above, the Metro Hotel Sydney Central functions well for business stays and weekends of family exploration.
