Nautical-themed luxury constructed atop the bay in The Rocks
It is hard to get closer to the spectacular Sydney bay than where Autograph Pier One Sydney Harbour sits. This nautical-themed hotel is constructed atop the water and hugs the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Well-appointed rooms offer giant telescopes for viewing the ships setting out to the Pacific. Heritage quarters allow guests to look out over the city. The hotel pontoon shuttles guests around town and the formidable bay-front restaurant and bar lure locals and tourists for authentic Australian cuisine. 
Highlights
  • Pontoon boat shuttle for hotel guests
  • Luxurious nautical-themed quarters with spectacular views
  • View the sunset from Front Restaurant
Rooms

Federation-style historic architecture morphs with executive decor in the hotel's 189 nautical-themed rooms. Waterview rooms offer a bang for your buck with massive windows offering vistas to Walsh Bay. All quarters feature original wood and iron from the pier, plus comfortable white topped beds and spacious bathrooms, many including Jacuzzi tubs and marble vanities. Business travelers make use of the mahogany work desk to connect to Wi-Fi or high-speed Internet (fees apply).

Features

Cruise around town in the private hotel pontoon, then return to enjoy Australian dishes for a sunset dinner at Front Restaurant (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner). Late into the evening the Front Bar, with a floodlit glass floor offers Sex in the City style cocktails. The hotel has a fitness center onsite and Wi-Fi is available (fees apply).

We felt like it was a cattle market

The staff had no time for patrons. We knew check in was at 2.00pm and arrived early to leave our bags, the staff said to come back at 11.00. Then they said come back at 12.00, 1.00 , 2.00 finally at 2.00 we were told to come back 3.00. I had to demand a key and then got a poor quality room. We were refused a restaurant meal, as they were to busy we could only have chips or wedges. The public toilets were disgusting during the day, no management plan to keep them clean. I will never go there again, or recommend it to any friends.

Wow! What a Combo!

Location, views, comfort and kindness! It doesn't get any better than this! We were at the Sebel Pier One for four nights and it was heavenly! This hotel is literally ON the water just under the Harbor Bridge around a curve from the Circular Quay! We were there during Vivid and our location was perfect for taking in the evening light shows all around the Quay and immediate surroundings. However, given the comfort of our suite and the views directly out of our window, we could have been very happy even if we had never left the hotel. the staff was consistently friendly and helpful, from the desk clerks to the consierge to the maintenance staff. We would go back again in a minute!

Dining tip: In Hotel

The food was delicious! it was a bit pricey but not different than other places in the area. Be sure to have to tomato entree. It is something special! We also found a nice little grocery store just a bit down Hickson street that made delicious breakfast sandwiches so we made that a morning outing and saved some money.

Nice Location

If you are looking for fun but also a quiet night's rest this is the place for you. Its located right at the Bridge base and a short 10 min walk to the harbor (harbor tours, souvenir shops, train station) and the Opera House. Its maybe a 5 minute cab ride to Darling Harbor so it close but not too close to some great night life areas. Also if you are interested in downtown shopping and the weekend street vendor markets this is a good spot.

Lovely hotel in great location

We throughly enjoyed our time at this lovely hotel. Reception and concierge staff were excellent and most understanding when we needed to extend our stay due to airline disruptions. They even extended a 20% discount to guests in the same situation. The location was perfect - easy walk to rocks area and circular quay area. Best rooms face the harbor and are towards front of hotel. Great views although a second floor room would have provided uninterrupted views and a small outdoor balcony area. We would not hesitate to stay here again on next trip to Sydney! Only disappointing feature was limited and unimaginative dinner menu in restaurant - too bad - view would have been wonderful!

Great Location and Service

Absolutely a "best" location for a tourist or business traveler. On the Harbor setting within easy walking to the "Rocks" and all central transportation - land and water. Almost a boutique feel with a small lobby and bar/restaurant with fantastic water views. Rooms were small for two twin beds and noisy. The toilets flushed with a frightening roar, which means you can hear all nearby rooms plumbing at work. That aside, we would come back, especially at the great rates we received.

Excellent hotel!

We had a great time at the Sebel Pier One. It's conveniently located. They even gave us a free honeymoon bottle of champagne for our room! :)

Unbeatable Location Period!!!

Best Location. Can not get closer to Bridge. Cost was great, close to Circular Quay, and short walk or taxi ride to Darling Harbor. Walking Distance to everything. Do not need a car. Staff were outstanding. If you problems see the staff. Excellent suggestions for food and things to do. Great places to eat and drink from 5 star to local pubs all within 5-10 minute walking distance.
