My husband and I decided to have a break from work and chose Sydney as our destination. Having booked our flight, our next issue was where to stay. A friend suggested the Blue Sydney, a Taj Hotel, and we were too happy that we followed his suggestion. Our holiday would not have been a splendid one if we chose to stay in another hotel.
