We booked at the Marque based on traveler reviews and price, along with convenient access to the City Rail Central Station. We found the hotel very easily upon leaving the train from the airport and, although it was only 7:30 a.m., Maria allowed us to check in (a shower! heaven!) The room had a comfortable, king-sized bed, a small desk and straight chair, a small table and rather odd "easy" chair, closet with two drawers and a minibar with fridge, and iron and ironing board. We thought the prices for the minibar items were about what you'd expect at a US hotel, i.e. exorbitant. However, what we found out was that we just weren't prepared for the price of food and drink in Australia, over all. Even in grocery stores, standard items were easily 2-3 times as much as in the US (easily determined with an exchange rate of $1.06!)
The bathroom has a shower, only, featuring a rain shower head and too few places to put toiletries. The best thing in the whole room, in my estimation, was the full-length drawer under the sink, a place to put all your bathroom stuff so you didn't have to lug it back and forth from the suitcase. Oh, and they have a hair dryer (I actually look for this so I don't have to bring one from home). The shower worked fine, although it was pretty easy to overwhelm the drain capacity, although the main bathroom floor also has a drain in it. It's too bad the management chose the rainwater shower heads for their remodel, I think -- hand-held units are SO much nicer! Every hotel we stayed at in France had a hand-held shower head, so it can be done. One does also need to make a sharp mental reminder about the threshold from the room into the bathroom, as it is about 1/2" and has a very sharp corner.
We liked the Marque so much we made reservations again for the two nights after we returned from Port Douglas. During our first stay, we had a great view of the Quay/George intersection. Our second stay showed us the alley behind the building.
Internet is free for 3 hours each day, although nobody may tell you that unless you ask. Wireless worked well in both the rooms we had. There is a small restaurant at ground floor although we didn't try it and we never made it up to the rooftop pool. The staff was invariably helpful and pleasant. Do use care with the elevators -- the doors do not "jump back" if they catch you mid-entry and I did end up with some dark bruises, although it eventually let me go.

... from the market so decided we should check it out. We ended up sitting next to another German, who had lived and worked in Australia for 40years, he was happy to give us recommendations of what to do and where to avoid. After a couple of german beers we walked towards the Opera house, by this stage it was dark and the Opera house and the Harbour bridge were light up, it was really pretty to see in that light and so decided to have a drink ...
... around the dock and the promenade are lined with shops and restaurants along with ice cream and coffee shops. People here in Sydney drink coffee all day long. All the coffee shops are crowded with customers from morning till night and almost everyone else is walking down the street with a coffee. Before we knew it the sun was beginning to set so we took a ferry back to the CBD for dinner.
Early this morning before going to Manly we visited ...
... to chill for the night to fully rest up so along with Chloe and Issy we ventured into the nightlife of Sydney. Much wine had naturally been consumed already and my head was spinning by the time we reached Maloney’s bar just up the road from the Hostel. We were allowed in after having our ID’s checked and being security scanned, a first for entry into a club it must be said. It would appear we had a couple of drinks there and I know the usual kind of ...
... and grand. We headed to the art gallery of nsw just in time as the heavens opened and it absolutely ****** it down. Spent a few hours in there. Luckily it was only very fine by the time we finished so we headed straight back to the hostel. New Girl from Chester (forgotten name already sorry) had just arrived to our room who had been all around Asia. Tempting Adam a bit. Looks amazing. Went and met up with Adams city friend Vanessa again which was cool. Had dinner at a ...
