Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour: French Vibe Meets Local Culture

Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour Prestige Suite
A Prestige Suite at the new hotel has wide reaching views over Sydney.

The new waterside Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour has an elegant French vibe that melds well with the city’s local culture. The chic hotel is Sydney’s first internationally branded new-build five-star in over 15 years.

The concierge team is on hand 24 hours to help put together private tours of the Sydney Opera House, retrieve tickets to the latest show or book helicopter tours of the city.

While views from the 590 guestrooms (including 35 suites) range from the Sydney’s Darling Habour skyline to the bay, the crown jewel is the Bellerive Suite. The 1,200-square-foot space has a separate dining and living room and skyline views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Note: All suites have comfy MyBeds exclusively designed for Sofitel as well as bathrooms with double shower heads, soaking tubs, and Hermes and Eau d’Orange Verte amenities.
