Luxury Hotels in Sydney

14 January 2014

Sydney has many beautiful luxury hotels to choose from for a stay in the city - here are just a handful!

When picking accommodation in Sydney, there is something for everyone and every budget, but for a lux experience, check out some of the luxury hotels in the city.

Here are some you can try.

Park Hyatt

It’s hard to say what the most luxurious part of this harbour-located hotel is – is it the central location, views of the Sydney Opera House or short stroll to The Rocks? Or could it be the sauna, rooftop suites, outdoor swimming pool or on-site masseur? Book a stay to find out!


The features in this gorgeous hotel range from an indoor pool via an award-winning restaurant to CHI, the most luxurious private spa suite with therapy options based on ancient healing traditions and philosophies stemming from early China and the Himalayas.

The Darling

Featuring everything you could want from a 5-star luxury hotel, this accommodation option has more than 170 rooms and suites, as well as an infinity pool and day spa. You won’t need to venture outdoors for a great meal as Sokyo, The Darling’s contemporary Japanese restaurant and bar, is in the same building.

Intercontinental Sydney

Not many hotels get to claim the title of one of the best hotels in the world, but when you offer views of the stunning Sydney Harbour, contemporary features in a heritage hotel, swimming pool, gym, three restaurants and the chance to upgrade to check out the only rooftop lounge in the city, this hotel well and truly earns this title.

Sheraton on the Park

Everything about this hotel screams five star. It sits opposite Hyde Park in the middle of the CBD and offers 557 guest rooms and suites alongside some of the best service you’ll find in the city. Check in to the wellness facility, relax in a spa or work out in the gym – you’ll not be left wanting in this luxurious spot.

Blue Sydney

While this hotel has all the trimmings of luxury – such as the indoor pool and gym – what really makes it special is the location, and with it, the views. A stay here offers a vista of the harbour, the city skyline and the Botanical Gardens right out your window.

QT Sydney

Not only is this a luxurious option for your Sydney stay, this hotel is on the cutting edge of trendy design and architecture, creating a space where travellers can rest in style, enjoy fine dining, while getting to take part in the creative and unique culture of the city.

Four Seasons

Imagine sitting in your warm and welcoming hotel room, looking out one window at the Sydney Opera House, then looking out the other window at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This is the kind of view you get when you stay in the historic Rocks location at this fully equipped hotel.

Radisson Blu

For a stay in a hotel with all the bells and whistles in the hub of the city, you can’t miss Radisson Blu. The health club features a swimming pool, steam room, gym and spa, and the five stars by the name highlights just how comfortable those 362 rooms and suites really are.

The Langham Sydney

With a history that dates back to the original Langham hotel in London, this Sydney hotel lives up to its name with an impressive facade and favourite features such as the underground swimming pool, tennis court and – get this – an in-house library.

The Westin

Travellers can often be seen taking photos outside this stunning structure – without even realising it’s a hotel. Sydney’s original post office is now one of the most gorgeous and luxurious hotels in the city on the doorstep of the bustling downtown area.

Quay West

One look at the indoor pool in this historic hotel and you’ll be booking your stay. Pair this with gorgeous harbour views, all the extras you’d expect from a five-star hotel and you’ll never want to leave.

Sebel Pier One

This is your chance to stay right near the Sydney Harbour Bridge – and, as the name suggests, it’s built on the water. One of the coolest things about this hotel is that it has its own pontoon, so you can leave directly from the hotel and head out for an adventure on the water.

Pullman Quay Grand Harbour

From the lush carpets, to the stylish decor and exceptional harbour views, this hotel is the definition of luxury. You’ll love the five-star service and all the goodies on offer here, such as the gym, indoor swimming pool and room service.

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay

Some of the special reasons to book yourself in for a stay include the open fireplace, 18th century-style antique furniture and the French doors that lead from most rooms onto Juliet balconies overlooking the harbour.

Hilton Sydney

Featuring the largest hotel gym in Sydney, this accommodation option is so nice you’ll never want to leave! It includes celebrated restaurants Zeta Bar and Marble Bar, and it’s right on the doorstep of Sydney’s central shopping area, so you’ll have plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy the city.

Swissotel Sydney

The rooms are what you’d expect from a Hollywood movie, the pool looks like something you’d send to a friend on a postcard and the restaurant offers a great taste of what Sydney has to offer. Book a stay in this deluxe hotel and expect to experience the last word in comfort.
