Named after its location on the western corridor of Sydney’s central business district – close to Darling Harbour and just five blocks from Wynyard Station – the eye-catching West Hotel is only the second new property to be built in the city’s CBD for more than 15 years. But unlike many places to rest one’s head in the capital of New South Wales, West Hotel’s distinctive character offers a UNIQUE taste of design splendour in the city’s newest cultural hub, and appeals to both curious corporate guests and discerning travellers seeking a more authentic Sydney experience.
Architects Fitzpatrick and Partners have incorporated some cool design elements within the fabric of the building, which set the hotel apart from others in Sydney, including a cool open-air central garden atrium. Meanwhile, a variety of modern classic design elements have been skilfully crafted throughout the interiors, courtesy of interior designers Woods Bagot: the same design firm behind many of Qantas’ new airport lounges, including the new domestic business lounge in Brisbane. Throughout West Hotel, a colour palette which reflects the character of Sydney Harbour and its natural surrounds, is complemented with rich, textured hues and married with bespoke artworks and graphic floors. Whilst sculptural lighting and natural stones successfully offset edgy industrial detailing with polished sophistication.
Each of the hotel’s 182 guest rooms feature state-of-the-art in-room entertainment systems and functional work areas for the busy corporate traveller. Whilst the four sleek suites – boasting views of either the Barangaroo precinct or Sussex Street – feature a separate living room and a private bedroom as well as an oversized bathroom laden with amenities by celebrated Melbourne born hair stylist Kevin Murphy.
