Delegates attending meetings at the International Convention Centre
Sydney (ICC Sydney) and are seeking five-star accommodation nearby have
been challenged for choice in recent times, with just a handful of
The Sofitel Darling Harbour, The Star Casino and about 10 minutes’
walk away, the Hyatt Sydney, have been the venues of choice. But come
October delegates will have another option when the W Sydney opens its
doors in October.
For the past two years visitors to Darling Harbour have been watching
with anticipation construction of the sleek property which sits right
in the centre of the precinct, just a stone’s throw from the ICC Sydney.
Confirmation now is that the W Sydney is on track to open in October.
Described as “a beacon of bold, sophisticated design”, the hotel is
set to dazzle the harbour city and guests with stylish accommodation, a
cutting-edge restaurant, bars and event space.
W Sydney’s 585 rooms, suites and ultra-luxe suites are expected to
set a new design benchmark for the city. Echoing the curves and lines of
the exterior, no two rooms will be exactly the same, embracing their
asymmetry with sleek, modern décor.
Each room at the 585-key W Sydney is inspired by the marine environment.
The interior palette of each room is inspired by the marine
environment, with highlights being the stunning azure bathrooms and
walk-in robes punctuated with contrasting colour and inflorescence.
In addition to its luxury rooms and suites, W Sydney will feature a
two-storey rooftop bar, heated infinity pool overlooking Darling
Harbour, AWAY Spa, FIT gym, a signature restaurant and the Living Room
Event space includes nine rooms totalling 1,308 square metres of
space. The largest space – The Great Room – can accommodate up to 805
delegates theatre-style and is divisible by two.
General manager, Craig Seaward, said the W Sydney team is incredibly
excited to be able to confirm the property will open in October.
“There have been delays, but trust me, it will be worth the wait,” he
said. “It’s a luxury hotel with a new perspective, one that not only
connects deeply with its host city and its urban setting but is also
imbued with a sense of freedom and possibility.
“To cross the threshold of W Sydney will be to enter an exciting new
world of creativity, design, culture and connection. We simply can’t
wait to welcome our guests.”
W Sydney will be a member of the Marriott Bonvoy travel rewards programme.
