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.
