Boasting 171 rooms, suites and penthouses, you’ll be able to soak up stunning views in a boutique setting at the heart of Sydney’s harbour entertainment precinct. Situated opposite Pyrmont Bay park, the Darling Hotel offers central Sydney accommodation but in a quieter setting than staying right in the CBD.

Business travellers will appreciate that The Darling Hotel is more like an urban resort than a standard business hotel, with luxurious rooms, personalised service, an award-winning spa and world-class dining options all under one roof. Inside the rooms, you’ll find features that are 'Distinctively Darling', from the handpicked pillow menu to textured wallpapers and bespoke furniture.

Our recommendation? The Stellar Suites on the 15th Floor feature oversized rooms - an entire floor of the hotel was removed to accommodate these suites with extra high ceilings and 76 square metres of space, making them fantastic for extended stays.
