Of course you’ll never struggle for somewhere to dine in Sydney, but if you prefer to eat in the comfort of your hotel then award-winning Altitude Restaurant is far more than your average hotel eatery, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, harbour views and contemporary Australian cuisine. Follow a meal here with drinks at the exclusive New York-inspired Blu Bar on 36, serving cocktails high above the city.
