  Beach views.
by Openseas

If you are a water addict like myself and want good views of Sydney Harbour or the beach, here is a list which contains all of Sydney's hotels with excellent water views.

1. Park Hyatt - Rocks - comes with a hefty price tag. Fab views of the Opera House and harbour.

2. Quay Grand Apartments - Circular Quay - These apartments have fantastic views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

3. Pier One Sebel - The Rocks - This hotel is perched on the edge of Sydney Harbour minutes from The Rocks district and Circular Quay.

4. Sir Stamford - Circular Quay - This traditional gem has wonderful views of Sydney Harbour and Sydney Harbour Bridge. You do however have to ask for them, otherwise you will get the Botanical views.

5. Star City Casino - Darling Harbour. The hotel have terrific views of Darling Harbour but again you do need to ask for direct Darling Harbour views.

6. Blues - Wooloolmooloo - Perched on the waters edge just 5 minutes from the CBD.

7. Four Seasons - CBD - Have terrific harbour views but mostly are on the higher level floors.

8. Quay West Apartments - These apartments have excellent views especially from the higher level floors.

9. Shangr-la - The Rocks - Super views of the harbour from their higher level floors.

10. Novotel - Darling Harbour - Waterfront location offering great harbour views.

Unique Qualities: NORTHERN SUBURBS
