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.
Those staying on floors 28 through 34 will have access to Club Millesime, which includes private check-in and check-out, lounge access, a dedicated wine cellar and more.
Executive Chef Matt Coates’ eateries serve up local Australian produce as well as Marseilles-inspired cuisine such as bouillabaisse and caviar along with champagne pairings. Dining venues include Atelier by Sofitel, the signature restaurant, and three bars: one in the lobby, another poolside on the fourth floor, and the Champagne Bar — the only such one in the city — on the third floor.
