Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney

    Tourists to Sydney, Australia, often scale the 440-foot-tall Sydney Harbour Bridge to glimpse what they've been told are the best views of the city. Guests of the Four Seasons know better: Sydney’s finest views are from the hotel’s northeast-facing rooms, which look out over the bridge, the opera house, and the harbor. Located in the Rocks district, the 34-story Four Seasons also offers a prime setting from which to explore central Sydney. And while its decor is a bit dated, the Four Seasons makes up for any shortcomings with its service, Dining, spa (the city’s finest), and sweeping Sydney views. Accommodations The 34-story hotel looks out over the Sydney Harbor, opera house, and bridge. Facilities The day spa features exclusive skin-care and aromatherapy treatments. Comprehensive fitness facilities are located on the third floor of the hotel, along with Sydney’s largest heated outdoor pool. Dining Dine at the chef’s table of Kable’s, the hotel's signature restaurant. The stainless steel workstation becomes your table as you and 10-15 of your friends watch as chef Carl Middleton works his magic, creating a five-course personalized menu. Later enjoy a tour of, and tasting in, the Chocolate Room. Rates From $310 to about $3,800.
