Its recognizable white-sailed Opera House gives Sydney its stunning calling card. But iconic contemporary structures by the likes of Renzo Piano and local architects, such as Glenn Murcutt and Denton Corker Marshall, up the stakes here. As does Art Deco architecture and innovative sustainable projects such as 1 Bligh Street. The sun-kissed capital of New South Wales also has plenty of nature to please those who flock to Sydney hotels each year. The city has nearly 70 beaches close by, such as Bondi and Coogee Beach to keep both Sydneysiders and visitors bronzed and relaxed. An innovative culinary scene, lush parks, and an animated cultural life ensure that hotels in Sydney are never empty. To get away from it all, visit the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains range and the famous Hunter Valley vineyards, which are a few hours’ drive from the Harbor City. Below find a list of our selection of boutique and luxury Sydney hotels.
