Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

I would advise you to email the hotel and ask them to send you all the information on their babysitting service then you have it in writing directly from them. We didn’t have children with us therefore we didn’t look into it.

Our parking was free but that was with the deal we got - I think it's normally around $20 for overnight.
