There are plenty of things to see and do in the local area, including the vibrant The Rocks neighborhood and King George V Memorial Park, just a five-minute walk away. Rooms are modern and stylish, and have large windows to make the most of the harbor views. The hotel has an excellent restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a fitness center, and eight meeting rooms.

Scene

Quirky and historic luxury property with original features

Interiors of this quirky historic property, such as the stylish lobby lounge, use reclaimed natural and industrial elements

The hotel is set in a converted warehouse that was built in 1912 and many of the original parts of the building have been retained and used as part of the hotel's interior design. The lobby of the hotel immediately sums up its quirky, nautical style. The walls are clad in reclaimed wooden planks, the industrial elevator doors are covered in rivets, and there are exposed beams and ceiling joists throughout the hallways and public areas. There is a funky and vibrant atmosphere throughout the hotel. The lobby has a bar attached to it, and people mill about and have casual meetings in the lobby and bar area. The weekday crowd is somewhat corporate, with guests looking for a professional and cultural vibe, while leisure guests are more apparent at the weekends.

Location

Waterfront hotel with fantastic Harbour Bridge views

Map of Pier One Sydney Harbour, Autograph Collection

As the name suggests, the hotel is located on Pier One in Sydney Harbor. This means it has fabulous views of the famous Harbour Bridge, and hotel guests can walk to the bridge in a couple of minutes. There are some excellent waterfront restaurants and bars in the surrounding streets and lots of parks and green spaces too. The Rocks, an upscale neighborhood of restaurants and boutiques, is just behind the hotel, a five-minute walk. The King George V Memorial Park is a five-minute walk, and the Sydney Observatory and Observatory Hill Park are an eight-minute walk. It's a 10-minute walk to Circular Quay No. 6 Wharf, and a 15- to 20-minute walk to the iconic Sydney Opera House. Sydney Airport is a 20-minute drive from the hotel depending on traffic.

Rooms

Stylish rooms with natural accents

The stylish Harbourview Suite incorporates natural accents like exposed wood beams and an earth-toned color palette

Guest rooms have a modern white and gray color scheme with natural materials used throughout, such as wicker side tables and tweed soft furnishings. Many rooms have exposed steel and wood beams in the ceiling, or parts of the building's original brick walls show through. Large windows make the rooms light and bright, and waterside rooms have fantastic harbor views. Many rooms have sharp whitewashed contemporary furniture with luxe white marble tops, and carpets come in shades of gray, giving them a plush feel. All rooms have a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, air-conditioning, coffeemaker, iPod dock, bathrobe, safe, and minibar. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi is not free. The individually decorated bathrooms are spacious and stylish. There are various room categories available to suit different budgets, including many different suites, some of which have a huge freestanding bath, a large private deck, and a flat-screen TV that rises up out of the foot of the bed.
