Cool Sh*t, Play, Sydney / 18 October 2023

Experience luxury at W Sydney Darling Harbour with stylish guestrooms and suites, complete with access to the relaxing AWAY Spa and the delectable BTWN restaurant, led by the renowned Chef Chris Dodd from Aria and Blue Door.

W Sydney, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s diverse brand collection, has opened its doors at Darling Harbour, becoming a must-visit destination for travellers and locals alike. This modern architectural gem, designed with a striking curved structure, adds a touch of luxury to the heart of Sydney and its waterfront.

The hotel is located within The Ribbon, a remarkable creation by the renowned Australian architectural firm Hassell. The interiors of W Sydney are thoughtfully designed by Bowler James Brindley from London, celebrating the city’s rich history.

W Sydney offers 588 guestrooms and 162 exquisite suites, drawing inspiration from its harbour and beachside surroundings. The rooms boast a coastal-chic design with a calming colour scheme of nautical white and navy blue, and the walls mimic the sails of yachts in the marina. Bathrooms feature deep oceanic blue themes, and walk-in wardrobes are playfully adorned with bursts of red and pink Waratah flowers.

Beyond its stunning design, W Sydney offers an array of dining and bar options across three levels. Head Chef Chris Dodd, a veteran of Aria and Blue Door, takes the lead in the culinary department. BTWN is the hotel’s restaurant, showcasing New South Wales produce. 2AM is a dessert bar and late-night hotspot created in collaboration with dessert expert Janice Wong. The Living Room’s menus celebrate the hotel’s location with a focus on Sake, Soju, and Asian small bites. For those seeking panoramic views, 29/30 is a two-level bar overlooking the harbour. The WET Deck bar, with its coral-inspired lighting, is a great spot for casual tapas and cocktails. Level 30 offers elevated cocktails, a selection of vintage Champagnes, and a décor reminiscent of a superyacht.

For relaxation and rejuvenation, the AWAY Spa at W Sydney offers a serene retreat in the midst of the bustling city. The spa, featuring five treatment rooms and artwork by Bradley Eastman, is designed to leave guests feeling refreshed. Fitness enthusiasts will find a well-equipped FIT Gym with Technogym machines to maintain their workout routines.

W Sydney has transformed into Sydney’s latest entertainment hub. The hotel’s design takes inspiration from the lively Darling Harbour, and whether you’re captivated by the maritime-themed rooms, diverse dining options, or the relaxing spa, W Sydney promises a luxurious and unforgettable experience for all who visit.
