The Woolstore 1888

The Woolstore 1888

Designed for social media-savvy travellers, The Woolstore 1888 is the world’s first ‘Instagram hotel.’ Trust us when we say it’s photogenic. Tucked inside a 19th century warehouse in Pyrmont, there’s a photo opp at every turn thanks to its wooden beams, exposed brick walls and five-storey atrium. The rooms are just as cool with street art-inspired décor, rain showers, 40-inch Smart TVs and iPads.

Hotel Palisade

Sitting pretty on the hill in Millers Point, Hotel Palisade – in all its towering five-story glory – is the place to book for a room with a view. With only eight rooms in total, this iconic portside hotel comes with the boutique stamp of approval: stylish nautical interiors, sweeping harbour views and a pleasingly affordable price tag. Whilst you’re there, be sure to head up to Henry Dean’s glamorous cocktail bar for share plates, creative cocktail mixes and breathtaking panoramic views overlooking the city.

With 20 rooms and suites fitted out for maximum relaxation, Spicers Potts Point has luxury down to a tee. An urban oasis tucked away on Victoria Street, guests have the best of both worlds: you’re in the thick of the nightlife action yet far enough removed to enjoy the quiet and leafy surrounds. For the ultimate stay book their largest room, the Victoria Terrace Suite, and enjoy breakfast on your own private terrace.
