A peak at Sydney’s new botanical hotel

Located in Sydney’s central business district and next to the new waterfront leisure and commercial Barangaroo precinct, West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton is the first Curio Collection by Hilton hotel in Australia.

The 182-room new build hotel will be managed by Hilton, under a management agreement with M&L Hospitality.

“Opening the first Curio Collection hotel in Australia is a very exciting milestone for us,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton.

“Being such a culturally rich city and the capital of New South Wales, Sydney is the perfect location to add to our growing global collection, which now boasts nearly 50 hotels. West Hotel will offer curious travellers seeking an authentic, memorable travel experience the ideal base to discover Sydney.”

Designed by Australian Architecture firm Fitzpatrick and Partners, with interiors by Woods Bagot, the hotel has a modern classic design theme, featuring deep tones with marble and brass accents. A strong botanical theme runs throughout the hotel, most evident in the beautiful open-air garden atrium and white waratah motif in the lobby.

Contributing to the lively Sydney dining scene is the on-property restaurant Solander Dining and Bar. Named after the first fleet botanist who arrived in Australia from England and helped discover several plant types, Daniel Solander, the restaurant and bar offer a modern Australian all-day dining experience with a focus on seasonal and botanical produce. Leading the Solander team is executive chef David Vandenabeele who joins the hotel after working as the head chef at a leading hotel in New York. David’s food philosophy is to select the highest quality ingredients to create dishes that are nourishing and mindful of food origins.

Jane Lyons, general manager, West Hotel Sydney said, “Our motivated and engaged team members very much look forward to welcoming guests to West Hotel, providing them with exceptional experiences that exude the distinctive spirit of Sydney, and offering them all the hallmarks of Hilton hospitality as part of the Curio Collection.”
