Our favourite rooms
Inspired by sweeping harbour views, rooms have a quiet nautical elegance. Marble-top tables, timber beams and leather chairs offset an understated palette of creams and greys. Waterside rooms have Walsh Bay views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows. All the suites are luxurious – expect day-beds, in-room tubs and an eyeful of Sydney's icons – but for true indulgence book the Harbour View Balcony Suite: you’ll find an indoor-outdoor bathroom and private deck jutting out over the pier.
Embrace the casual seaside vibe with deck shoes and pedal pushers.
The hotel has four wheelchair-accessible rooms.
Pets are allowed on the ground floor (but not the Gantry), and in some Waterside King, Twin, and King Deluxe rooms with direct pier access, on request, for AU$60 a stay. Dog bowls and sleeping mats are provided, and food can be ordered round the clock. See more pet-friendly hotels in Sydney.
Welcome. Cots for under-5s are free. Some rooms (Heritage Deluxe, Waterside Deluxe, Walsh Bay Suite and Hickson Suite) have a double sofa bed for two under-12s or one older child (AU$30 a night a child). The restaurant can rustle up child-friendly meals.
The hotel sources its food from local producers and farmers, recycles grey water, and uses eco-friendly light bulbs and a saltwater cooling system.
