Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

Right at the heart of the action in Sydney is the Sofitel, promising immediate access to the attractions of Darling Harbour including the many shops, bars and restaurants dotted along its waterfront.

Across the water is one of the city’s top attractions – the fantastic aquarium and zoo – while the Opera House can be reached via a scenic ferry ride beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Not only does this high-end hotel flaunt a privileged location, but also unrivalled views of Sydney’s skyline and bay from the guestrooms, restaurants, gym and outdoor infinity pool.

Huge windows look out over the city, even from many of the bathrooms so you can enjoy a long soak while gazing across the harbour. Rooms and suites are as elegant and well-appointed as you would hope from the French Sofitel group, while the option to upgrade to one with Club Lounge access is too good to resist.

What’s more, French hospitality and cuisine take the whole experience up a notch at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. You’ll be welcomed with a ‘Bonjour’ from hotel staff and greeted with modern French fare in the signature restaurant, Atelier.

Another irresistible French touch is the Champagne Bar, perfect for toasting your Australia holiday after a day of exploring Sydney, though you also have three other bars at your disposal: one by the pool, another in the lobby and the Club Lounge, Millésime, where you’ll be spoilt with complimentary snacks and drinks – including champagne – plus stellar city views from the 35th floor.
