Where are these hotels?

While these hotels are all within walking distance to the SCG, some are closer than others. If you're slightly further out, you can catch a bus on Oxford Street to the stadium if you're staying closer to the city or on Anzac Parade if you're staying on the other side of Centennial Park.

Unfortunately, there are no trains or trams that stop direct at the stadium, so taking the bus is your best public transport option.
