Not sure how true this is. The PH NYC rarely charges less than $1K/nt for base rooms and I wouldn't say they're much nicer than the PH SYD.

There aren't many good luxury options in the city. Calling the FS Sydney a Four Seasons is almost laughable. Shangri La is decent but nothing to write home about. Sofitel Darling Harbour is nice but inconvenient. The new W and Crowne hotels in the CBD/Darling Park should hopefully introduce some quality competition.
