We mentioned last month that Sydney was stocking up on hotel rooms, including the opening of the Pullman at Sydney Olympic Park--the first five-star hotel outside of central downtown in Sydney.

Now that the Pullman is properly up and running we're hearing more about it. The pillow menu got a good reaction in a recent Sydney Morning Herald review but the lack of a driveway in the hotel got the thumbs down--although there are apparently usually porters waiting to grab your suitcase when you pull up on the road, and the staff will also valet park your car for nix.

If you're feeling sporty, which we are when we think of this Olympic Park location, then the Pullman's Gold Medal Package might appeal to you. For A$285 (US$200) a night you get a double room, two passes to use the Sydney Aquatic Centre, and two tickets to take a tour of the huge ANZ Stadium.

Yes, we're disappointed that they don't throw in a medal (even a bronze would've been enough). But the disappointment wouldn't stop us trying out this "other" side of Sydney sometime.
