This Sheraton on the Park Shower in Sydney Cured Our Jet Lag
Compared to some of the out-of-this-world Hotel Bathrooms we chronicle, this shower at Sydney's Sheraton on the Park may not seem so amazing. But let us tell you: it is amazing.
What's not pictured is the full-force water pressure that this humble shower is capable of. The glorious, strong water pressure that seemed to immediately cure us of jet lag when we touched down in Sydney after 24 hours of travel recently.
Seriously, we don't think we've ever experienced such good water pressure in a hotel before. And we're talking anywhere in the world.
A shower after all those hours on a plane (in coach!) is always a relief, but this was transformative. We landed around 7:30 a.m. but after a nice long shower here, we were able to get ourselves out and about in downtown Sydney for the entire afternoon. (And we all know that staying up and adjusting to the new timezone also works wonders on jet lag.)
Perhaps this is what Lady Gaga loved about the Sheraton on the Park?
She's not alone, by the way. This hotel located across Hyde Park, a block away from the best shopping in the city, has always been a star favorite. In our former life as an entertainment journalist, we conducted many an interview with a visiting celeb in the Sheraton's mezzanine guest longe.
The entry-level rooms are pretty standard aside from this super-shower--we'll show you around the rest of our digs tomorrow--but the hotel does have quite a few suites with pretty views across the treetops so the A-listers probably like those.
That or they just discovered the curative aspect of those Sheraton on the Park showers long before we did.
P.S. If you should require more aggressive treatment of your jet lag, the hotel has a Day Spa on the top floor.
