As usual a good welcome from the staff. Chef asked us about the dinner and told us about his steaks.
Location is great and that's a main attraction for us - near to Kings Cross station and within walking distance of Oxford St and even the CBD.
BUT I may not be staying there once my IHG membership expires in March 2015 - this is because of the much reduced benefits for members. Over the years of membership, the benefits have declined. Whe I first joined we had the PP Club Floor at the Landmark Hotel - fantastic - and now with the changeover to IHG the benefits have greatly deteriorated to where we will only get one 2 nights for price of one voucher, and 25% discount on meals. I would much prefer to continue with more vouchers and the meal discount as currently is - it suits me as my wife and I dine for the price of one meal. The fact that the 25% applies to drinks doesn't make up for it at all. Please don;t tell me this latest change is better for me - it isn't!
From discussions I've had it seems that other members will be voting with their feet (or their wallets) as I will be doing - i.e. not renewing membership. It is a shame as I have enjoyed the membership over the years since the late 90s but it seems IHG does not care.

I find Sydney as one of those places where you find a lot of people in a hurry, so as a tourist it is important that my choice of hotel is right. A restful environment after long walks is extremely important and Holiday Inn Potts Point is an excellent option.
The distance to key Sydney attractions though is not an issue. Kinds Cross Station is next door, and it is two stations away from the Town Hall, my access to Hyde Park, Sydney Tower and Queen Victoria Building.
There were elders with us. My mom and aunt (75yrs old and 72!!) preferred that we walk the streets from Holiday Inn all the way to the Opera House. And so we did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by R.G.L. Great staff and service.
The staff and service at this Hotel is equal or superior
to any I have used in my travels in Australia or any other
country. The locality of the hotel to transport is ideal, and the facilities are excellent . I definitely recommend this
Hotel for business or pleasure.
