The key to uncovering every corner of Sydney is having a good base. The Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel is located in the heart of the CBD and is under a 10-minute walk to the Royal Botanic Garden and Hyde Park. Visit the sights of Circular Quay then hop on a ferry across Sydney Harbour to Manly Beach or perhaps Taronga Zoo, where you can get up close to the giraffes. The hotel is also near the city’s bustling nightlife. Stop into Ragazzi, hidden down Angel Place, for a plate of cacio e pepe or head to Shell House and theClock Tower bar for a Sicilian Margarita made with tequila, limoncello, Sichuan pepper and lemon.

Work on your wellness

If wellness is a priority, the Radisson Blu has you covered. Ask the concierge about nearby running and walking routes or hit the hotel’s gym, 15-metre lap pool, health club and spa. The latter, named Tanya, features skin treatments and massages, including Swedish and Indian techniques. Opt for a Spa suite and continue the treatments back inside your room by soaking in a deep tub fitted with massaging jets.
