The hotel was fine -- fairly large and impersonal. Service was good, room was ok. I don't have a great connection to it and likely would look elsewhere next time.

Our stay at the Shangri-La was very good. After staying at the same hotel in Singapore for a few days, which was very impressive and had been updated a year ago. The Sydney Shangri-La is getting tired and could use an update.
