If you’re looking for a weekend escape in a superb harbourside location paired with indulgent accommodation trimmings, don’t look past the Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel in Circular Quay.
The Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel is positioned on stunning Sydney Harbour, right between two of the country’s most impressive icons – the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.
The Marriott is at the heart of all harbour festivities; with uninterrupted views of fireworks and lights displays (such as VIVID), as well as celebrations throughout the year. It’s a part of the rich melting pot of world-class cuisine, culture and captivating entertainment that defines Circular Quay.
Upon entering the lobby with soaring ceilings and a cascading installation of sculptural lighting and glass and marble staircases, be bedazzled by the striking raindrop chandelier while the immaculate, friendly hotel staff check you in and provide expert advice for anything you might need.
The Marriott provides a multitude of packages for visitors – from couples weekend harbour getaways with cocktail experiences to family playcations with teepees, a toys terrace, and more. For the ultimate luxurious experience, guests can book the city’s only duplex heritage Presidential Suite – featured in shoots with the likes of Louis Vuitton – with an enormous spa, separate living and dining areas, and spectacular Opera House views. Business travellers will also find everything they need at a hotel where the staff are accustomed to catering for those who want to relax and work in a home away from home.
Access to the sprawling city of Sydney and beyond requires minimal effort as light rail, bus and ferry services are all within a 3-minute walk from the lobby and the express train takes you straight to Sydney airport.
Sydney’s top sights and experiences such as the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, Luna Park, the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Rocks precinct, and Pitt Street Mall are all within an easy walking distance for a relaxing day or night out.
Every weekend, artisans converge at The Rocks Markets, where there is a tantalising array of talent on show. Plus find niche clothing, handbags and jewellery stores to delicately crafted food, craft beers, fine wines and some country’s best restaurants — an incredible offering for all tastes. Regular events such as open air cinemas, alfresco performances, exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Arts next door provide a smorgasbord of cultural offerings.
However, if you prefer to not stray too far and instead indulge in your suite or in the hotel’s wonderful dining and beverage options, rest assured that wouldn’t be the first visitor to the Marriott who has decided that the outside world can wait.
