Default Celebrity Summit Australia-Tahiti 2013

Hello fellowcruisers,

My husband and I will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and wondered if anyone could assist us with the following:

I decided to give us some time to recover from jet lag and was looking for a hotel to stay at for a couple of days.

Could anyone recommend a hotel in Australia near the port of departure? I recently checked out Marriott and the price was over $600.00 (for 3 nights)!

Also, what about nearby walking distance restaurants?

Thank you.

elf

Google maps would be a good start.

The Summit isn't in Australia in 2013. Are you sure you don't mean Solstice?

I don't think that hotel rate is high by Aussie standards. BTW what is the port?

Sydney is the only departure port for this vessel.
You can take a look at the Australia/New Zealand forum on this board for other things to do while there.
The price is probably quite correct for a Hotel in downtown Sydney and I use Expedia when looking for hotels there.

There are many less expensive hotels in the Sydney area. I spent one n ight in a Best Western in North Sydney. $130.00. Not elegant, but all we did was sleep there. I have also spent several nights in a Travel Lodge in downtown Sydney, with in easy walking distance to Hyde Park. It was about $150.00 per night. It was better than the Best Western.
