The latest addition to the W brand has opened the W Sydney in Sydney, Australia. The curved structure (reminiscent of the W Barcelona) brings modern luxury in this 588-room hotel.
This is a huge W (the largest in the world) with 588 rooms including 162 suites. The accommodations draw inspiration from the hotel’s harborside location and nearby beaches with a nautical white and navy-blue palette. Bathrooms are designed with deep oceanic blue and walk-in wardrobes featuring a burst of graphic, inflorescent red and pink Waratah flowers.
The W Sydney channels the energy of the harbor city and its culture of inclusivity with four new dining and bar venues. These include BTWN, which pays homage to night food markets, 2AM: dessertbar, a late-night hotspot, the Living Room bar embraces the hotel’s location on the edge of Asiatown with sake, soju, and Asian small bites. 29/30 is a two-level bar with excellent views, elevated cocktails, a menu of vintage champagnes by the glass, and the above-sea-level décor of a super yacht.
Amenities include the two-level rooftop WET Deck with infinity pool, AWAY spa, gym, and nearly 14,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader of W Hotels, said:
W Sydney marks our W Hotels brand’s triumphant return to Sydney, a long-awaited addition to our robust portfolio in Australia, following our recent debuts in Melbourne and Brisbane. W Sydney will cultivate a new cultural and social hub in the vibrant Darling Harbour precinct. It is the perfect canvas for a non-conformist approach to the luxury hospitality landscape with W’s bold and energetic ‘Whatever/Whenever’ service ethos, dynamic design, and immersive programming as we celebrate Sydney through a new lens.”
Anthony’s Take: The hotel looks gorgeous and I am a fan of W as a brand (especially with the evolution that is underway with the W Union Square and others). The location and amenities are perfect for both business and leisure travelers.
