Anything in the CBD should suit you just fine. As for suggestions, it would depend greatly on your preferences and budget

If it is Circular Quay then I always stay at Quay Grand Suites. Expensive but worth it. It is in walking distance to the ship.

We have two cruise terminals - Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay and one at White Bay - which one are you using ?

A lot depends on your budget

When in Sydney to join a cruise ship we stay at the Great Southern near Central station - its walkable to Circular Quay admittedly a decent one at that but still doable while White Bay requires a cab although I believe there is a ferry that operates from Darling Harbor to WB.

The ferry is a bit hit and miss. They keep changing what they are doing with it

If the ship departs from circular quay, then for me it would be any hotel close to a railway station on the city circle as those trains will pass through the circular quay railway station.

Try Holiday Inn Old Sydney or Mercantile Hotel or Russell Hotel or for more upmarket The Park Hyatt. They are walkable to the Circular Quay cruise ship departures.

While I agree with all the suggestions, I'm very much against the Holiday Inn Old Sydney, even though the proximity cannot be beaten.

The product is way overrated and overpriced because of the location. When they're charging with the likes of Shangri-La and Four Seasons, it's out of proportion. You're better off staying in a true five star and paying $10 for a taxi

You need to identify the terminal for your particular cruise so that the locals can advise you correctly. The two terminals are nowhere near each other.
