The new-look City Suite at Hilton Sydney.

Two new room categories – the Corner Room and Family Room – headline a major AUD$25 million refurbishment of Hilton Sydney – the brand’s flagship Australian property, which has been unveiled this week.

The new Corner Room category is larger than other rooms and offers an extended view of the Sydney CBD via an additional window. Family Rooms are created as needed from two interconnecting rooms and created as needed by parties needing that extra space while staying together.

A central element to the guest room refurbishment are new artworks sourced from three female artists – Camie Lyons, Angela Hayson – both Sydney-based – and Indigenous Queensland artist, Bec Tarrant.

Family Rooms are a new category created in response to popular demand.

Further new features now on display across Hilton Sydney’s 547 rooms and 40 suites include European tapware, reclining chairs, new bedside lighting and 55” smart televisions.

Hilton Sydney General Manager, Hayden Hughes, said: “Hilton Sydney is an iconic property and we are so pleased to offer a reinvigorated product to our guests in 2021.

“Providing an upmarket guest experience while offering a gateway to Sydney’s CBD has always been a priority for the hotel. With the renovation, Hilton Sydney has further enhanced its position as the ideal base for travellers to immerse and explore Sydney from, and for business guests to meet and connect at.”

Practicality and functionality were key design guidelines for the renovation, which was overseen by a+ design group, with company Director, Mike Watson, saying a fundamental design focus was overhauling the traditional desk setup, with its place being taken by an oversized Italian armchair and ottoman with a custom table which guests can use to work, dine or relax.
