included as many possibitlies as I could locate in the Sydney area for
you. There are a number for you to consider.

Another 5 start hotel offers these facilties:

Perhaps at the other end of the spectrum is Cook Phillip Park:

Hyde Park, it includes a 50m swimming pool, leisure and hydrotherapy
pools and a fitness centre. Close to major City attractions..."
