Hilton has announced that its luxury hotel brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, will make its Australia debut in 2025. Waldorf Astoria Sydney will be part of a mixed-use development, One Circular Quay, located along the Sydney Harbour, and will offer views of the Harbour Bridge as well as the Opera House.

Construction has begun on the 28-floor, 220-key Waldorf Astoria Sydney, slated to open in 2025. Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma & Associates and Sydney-based Crone Architects are overseeing both the hotel’s architecture and the design of its rooms, incorporating elegant, contemporary elements into its 179 guest rooms and 41 suites.

In celebrating Sydney’s “gastronomic excellence”, the hotel will feature two original restaurant concepts and a rooftop bar overlooking the Sydney Harbour. The hotel also houses the brand’s signature Peacock Alley lounge and a spa. Guests will additionally be able to tap on the hotel’s personal concierge services to personalise experiences.

The hotel will be located within walking distance of some of the city’s prime shopping districts and key attractions. Besides the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, these include the Royal Botanic Gardens and Museum of Contemporary Art.

Waldorf Astoria Sydney marks the brand’s first foray into Australasia and the seventh Waldorf Astoria hotel in Asia Pacific.
