Lofty rooms with water views on the Woolloomooloo Wharf

Retaining original features of the historical wharf structure--including exposed timber beams and black pipes--BLUE Sydney has infused the elderly building with a dash of serious cool. Coveted loft rooms are apartment-size with five-star amenities and boutique style. The award-winning Water Bar draws Sydney starlets, business executives and jetsetters who sip fanciful cocktails by candlelight. The Wharf at Woolloomooloo never looked so glam.

Highlights
  • Fabulous address on Woolloomooloo Wharf
  • Hip bar attracts celebs and socialites
  • Loft accommodations with giant windows
Rooms

Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows covered with dual blinds feature shimmering Pacific or city views from the hotel's 100 rooms. Standard room interiors in shades of stone and sand are sparse, but do not lack luxury. The hotel's 36 loft rooms are worth the splurge with high ceilings, plush couches and deep tubs. Emerald throws, pillows and glass panels pay homage to the hotel's name while deep timber beams and exposed black pipes nod to the building's heritage. Hotel quarters feature high thread count linens, pillow-top mattresses, Wi-Fi and LCD TV.

Features

BLUE Sydney, a member of the Leading Small Hotels of the World, knows how to deliver amenities and experience. The hotel features a state-of-the-art fitness center and indoor lap pool, plus six restaurants in the wharf complex. The award-winning Water Bar has a cinematic setting populated by lovely patrons who sip colorful martinis on silver ottomans. The entire property features Wi-Fi.

The Blue

My son recommended this Hotel to me and it lived up to all his comments. The staff went the extra mile, even suppling me with a travel plus as I has lost mine. Room was superb with a very comfortable bed and great facilities. Yes it was pricey, but worth it. The retuarant oposite is excellent for breakfast and does the best Coffee

Perfect hotel on Sydney

The location in the water was perfect. The view of the city from our window was great. The proximity of the botanical gardens was wonderful. Loved the restaurants around and the running paths everywhere!

Blue Hotel after cruise stay

The Blue Hotel is great, a short distance from the center of Sydney. a lot of places to have lunch and dinner right outside the hotel. The rooms are great and the bedding is very comfortable. Next time we are in Sydney we will definitely stay at the Blue Hotel again.

perfect hotel

From the very beginning when I was helped out of our airport shuttle the staff could not have been more helpful.They were friendly with genuine smiles and very kind.It was so nice to be treated as a friend with no expectation of a tip(tipping is not the practice in Australia)They answered all our questions and I never felt rushed or like there was anything that was too much trouble.My daughter mentioned she loved the big bath but had no bath salts and they sent some up right away. Wonderful beds and pillows. The location is terrific with great restaurants below along the wharf.It is right beside the Domaine and Botanical gardens and I only wish it wasn't pouring rain.

Perfect ending to our Austalian vacation

We had wonderful service from our concierge but my husband was a bit peeved that he sent us to an expensive restairant that did not have lamb on the menu when that was what he was specifically looking for The room and view made it hard to leave. We just happened to find your name in one of the tour books and are very glad we followed through and checked it out,

A week in Sydney Australia

Beautiful and unique. Friendly and helpful staff. Had lots of restaurants and a nice bar area. It had yacht on one side and military vessels on the other. Located a short walk away from Circular Quay and the Opera House.
