Novotel Sydney City Centre

Ideally located right next to Wynyard Station and steps away from Barangaroo — a perfect base for a Sydney adventure.

Housed in the former location of the Mercure Sydney Wynyard, the hotel boasts 283 newly renovated rooms across 22 floors, reflecting a $20-million refurbishment project completed in November 2023, led by Australian studio Dezign. The hotel has a keen focus on emphasising sustainability and family-friendly amenities.

As the first Novotel in Australia to embrace "Hypothesis," it aims to minimise waste and maximise functionality for its guests. There are self-check-in kiosks in the lobby, and all in-room information is shared via QR codes to minimise paper waste.

There are rooms ranging from family accommodations to suites with wet bars and balconies with views of the surrounding heritage buildings. Select suites offer modular furniture for personalised arrangements, allowing for flexibility and space efficiency to suit a guest's bespoke needs.

With natural textures, timber accents and abundant greenery in the rooms and lobby, the hotel provides a tranquil retreat amidst the city's bustle.

Downstairs in the lobby, you'll also find the Birdie Bar and Restaurant — which offers a fusion of British and modern Australian fare on a menu that champions local produce and celebrates Aussie fauna of the feathered variety.
