I 've just reserved The State Suite for a significant Birthday in June next year.
Used my online Ambassador Certificate ( so second night free - which will be a Saturday ).

Does anybody have anything to say about the 'State Suite experience' they have previously had ?

Anything one should do, prior to arrival on the day ?

Also … as there is only one State Suite, and one Australia Suite …. what's my chance of getting upgraded from State to Australia ? ( based on the latest info. I know much has been said about 'no upgrades' to Australia …. but then others have countered that ?? )

*** After watching 'Eyes Wide Shut' again recently, I thought I might get a guy in to play the piano blind-folded ….. you know, so my guests can all dance around the sheep's head naked !!

I can't comment on the State Suite but have been upgraded to the Australia Suite and Governor Suites previously.

I consider the upgrade "policy" changed significantly around 5 years ago, and they no longer upgrade to, or within, specialty suite categories.

I'd be more than happy for you to prove me wrong on that :)

Well, would you believe … there is an upgrade on the State Suite !!

Just checked my account, and my reservation now reads " ROYAL OPERA SUITE".

Never knew about this one. Anybody provide any details ? ( thanks ).

Just checked the IC Sydney webpage. " …. formerly known as the State Suite".

Geez, I was hoping it was the 'new name' for The Australia Suite !!!
