With its imposing curved architecture, Sydney’s soon to be opened W
Hotel will house 585 guest rooms, bringing luxury level to new heights
in the Darling Harbour precinct. It has begun accepting guest room and
event bookings from 12 October, 2023 and is designed with W Hotels’ DNA
and Australia’s cultural touchstones, resulting in all-encompassing
24-hour dining and social retreat.
Touchpoints at W Sydney have been curated meticulously, with modern
interiors by Bowler James Brindley. When guests step through the
copper-clad Welcome, they enter a W immersive world. The hotel houses
1,308 sqm of event space and eight meeting rooms. Its largest space can
host 805 pax.
The hotel’s double-level bar, 29/30, is set to become one of Sydney’s
most popular venues, with dress circle views of the harbour across a
30-metre mosaic-inlaid infinity pool. Wine, cocktails and a
Basque-inspired tapas menu can be enjoyed at 29/30. The bar’s upper
tier, on level 30, takes things up a notch, with yacht-inspired
interiors and a menu of elevated cocktails and vintage Champagnes by the
glass, from Dom Pérignon to Ruinart, and Krug to Armand de Brignac.
The wardrobe worn by the hotel staff has been designed in partnership
with celebrity stylist Jess Pecoraro, whose clients include Louis
Vuitton, Bottega Veneta and Fendi. Australian-Ukrainian tattoo artist
Stanislava Pinchuk has also created a tattoo of stars for the hotel’s
guestroom corridors, and muralist Sophi Oldling, has created her
conscious, vibrant art on the walls of BTWN, the hotel’s restaurant.
The hotel driveway has been styled with a fleet of vehicles powered by W’s local automotive partner, Genesis Motors.
W Sydney’s GM, Craig Seaward, said: “W Hotels is a brand that was
born in New York, but destined for Sydney. The pulse of the city is so
aligned with the W spirit - the sense of originality and curiosity, the
unique take on luxury, the bold attitude. Eclectic and unexpected, this
new hotel will be a beacon for the harbour, a hub of constantly evolving
experiences and exciting spaces that unfold from morning till late and
are deeply connected to the life of the city. We can’t wait to share W
Sydney with our guests when we open our doors on 12 October.”
