By Rachel Power

Recently, we were lucky enough to stay at the Swissôtel Sydney, a five star hotel located right in the heart of the city, walking distance to Darling Harbour, shopping, attractions and the monorail.   We travelled to Sydney for business, however in our line of work, our children are part of our business.
