I'm going to Sydney in a few months and trying to pick a hotel to stay in. I prefer to stick with the IHG chain, since I'm a platinum member and whatnot, and having a few thousand rewards points across multiple hotel chains does me no good. Anyways, that leaves two Holiday Inn hotels, which are fine with me. I never go luxurious when it comes to hotels. One is in Potts Point/Kings Cross, and one in Darling Harbour. I'm trying to figure out which area is better. The one in DH is roughly $300 USD more (at today's exchange rates) for the length of my stay. I've read that DH is a nicer area, and Kings Cross can be a bit sketchy, but is it bad enough to warrant the extra $300 to stay at DH? Both hotels are about equal amenity-wise and are both close to public transportation so it seems as if the only difference is the neighborhood they're in. Thanks!
