Citadines Connect Sydney Airport
This ain't your usual airport adjacent hotel - these guys bring a little extra flair and luxury to your Sydney stay.
August 05, 2022
Airport accommodations are normally pretty drab but the lively 150-room Citadines Connect (formerly the Felix Hotel) is bucking this trend with a truly first-class stay. Yes, we're as surprised as you are.
Inspired by the golden age of air travel in the 60s — that is, before budget airlines made you pay for water and wearing leggings as pants became the norm— the seamless experience starts from the get-go with guests heading straight to the top-level penthouse to check-in.
Expect bright pops of pastel colours alongside smooth woods and polished metal finishes. They do a pretty good job of blending modern chic and retro cool design features.
From here, overlooking the runway, guests can enjoy the rooftop cinema, dining area, heated outdoor terrace and colourful cocktail bar — the latter of which will undoubtedly be a departure from the usual monotonous airport watering holes. It's a surprising inclusion to our choice of the best hotels in Sydney.
