Sydney, being an ever growing tourism hotspot, has many five star luxury hotels. Most of the more expensive variety, such as the Four Seasons and the Westin Sydney, are located downtown in the heart of the Central Business District, or the CBD as its commonly abbreviated.
All the 5 star hotels are, as expected, five star in price too. Rooms can be as high as a thousand dollars a night, that’s on the lower end too, their best and most luxurious suites can be astronomically high in price and with the state of the worldwide economy, the average person can’t afford these hotels at these rates and will look for cheaper accommodation at three stars or even less. Which is usually of less quality and results in a disappointing stay.
However, with the help of the internet, locating the best deals on 5 star hotels in Sydney is becoming easier, they’re beginning to offer room rates that are actually competitive with the lower budget hotels. The standards of the luxury hotels aren’t slipping either, you still receive the five star treatment for a lower price and still stay in luxurious suites that used to be only available to the rich and elite.
These deals could be due to China’s luxury hotel market being forced to lower their prices due to the austerity measures put in place by the Chinese government. Part of the austerity plan limits how much food a hotel can serve to their guests. Gone are the days when the kitchen was open as long as you had a few bucks to give to the chef, now it’s a soup and a main course and that’s about all you are getting in a luxury hotel in China.
