Arrow West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton {AUS}

Finally a second Hilton property for Sydney, Australia.
Exact address is 65 Sussex St Sydney.

Smallish 182-roomed hotel in the North West of the CBD.
Just south of the new Barrangaroo office buildings and accessible to Wynyard Station.

Interior design is by Woods Bagot, a local firm that does pretty high end stuff. The theme is "Waratah" which is the state flower of NSW.

Some press:

Super excited about this property. We were in Sydney this past January and ended up staying in Marriott and Hyatt hotels. Definitely glad to see Sydney gain another Hilton (and at that a Curio - one of my favorite brands).

Will be in Sydney in December and already booked at the Hilton, but will definitely check this property out then for future visits..looking forward to early reviews and diamond treatment. This should be a welcome addition to the portfolio.

Good First Impressions











Booked a Standard Room and was upgraded to a Suite facing the street on the top floor. Good Diamond recognition at check in. Proactively offered a late checkout and received a hand written note, and a Card for the GM.
I was advised as the Hotel doesnt have a lounge I was to have two welcome drinks from the bar and should show my Diamond Card to the staff there.
The suite was compact but beautifully appointed. Kevin Murphy toiletries, marble vanity and full bath.There is a Gym on the second floor. I had the welcome drink at the bar and was also given a complimentary appetizer which was delicious.
I didnt have breakfast this morning so cant comment on that. Overall a good stay, stylish property in a good location with easy access to parking across the road.

Diamond Card?? Does anybody actually carry it around with them? If really needed I guess I could just show the app.
