My husband and I are traveling for the first itme to New Zealand and Australia. I have come up with these options for 3 nights March. They are listed in order of my current preference; total price is in USD. All refundable bookings. We will not have a car.

Would love to hear your pros and cons; and any other suggestions are also welcomed!

The Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks -- $750 no breakfast

Rec on this board, so that’s a plus. Location looks great; price also seems great. Anything I am missing??

Ovolo Woolloomooloo -- $1,100 incl continental breakfast, daily happy hour, snacks in room

Great reviews, looks like a fun experience. About a mile walk to central CBD (certainly do-able for us, but not ideal).

Intercontinental -- $1350 partial harbor view including breakfast

Reliable, high-quality experience. Downside is price but could lower it if I book a city view instead. Is there any reason this room is worth $600 more than the Rendezvous?

Simpsom’s of Potts Point -- $700 incl continental breakfast

Concerned about location, although when in cities we sometimes enjoy staying in areas with a neighborhood vibe.

Thank you!
