There’s something special about having a Sydney staycation. You explore the beautiful city by day, sip on a cocktail by night (after all, you’re on holiday!), and then come home to a fluffy robe in a freshly made up room. Speaking of rooms, if you want to go boutique, you have a slew of options. Whether you want to be on the harbour, in the glitz and glamour of the city, or steps from the beach, there’s a boutique hotel you’ll love. Check in and check out of these stylish spots.
Another boutique gem by the Ovolo team, 1888 Hotel occupies a huge 19th century warehouse in Pyrmont. These days, it’s as industrial-chic as it gets, with exposed brick walls, wooden beams, and vibrant interiors. The staff are young, and the clientele hip, making happy hour a guaranteed good time, and it’s only a short stroll to Darling Harbour.
139 Murray Street, Pyrmont
Located in The Rocks, the modern hotel is a beautiful contrast to the cobblestoned streets around it. The charming hotel has 59 rooms of varying sizes, as well as Scarlet, a fine dining restaurant, and Eric’s Bar, whose wine list is as long as it is impressive. Want to splash out? Book the aptly-named Harbour View Suite on the top floor.
