Formerly Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour the hotel is located within Darling Square, Sydney’s newest city neighbourhood which features residential apartments, corporate offices and laneways boasting a range of shopping and dining options. 

The hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment across each of the 230 guest rooms. Inspired by the neighbouring Chinese Gardens, the colour scheme, finish and lighting of each of guest room has been designed to capture the tranquillity of the gardens. The room design creates the feeling of an urban oasis and connects the hotel to its local community.

The hotel’s new lobby bar and restaurant Pier Street Kitchen is now open, offering guests and locals a brand new option for breakfast and dinner. The menu is abundant with fresh produce and healthy options. Plus, guests can still take advantage of the Pumphouse Bar adjoining the hotel, for evening dinner and drinks.

Simon McGrath, chief operating officer of AccorHotels Pacific said Novotel Sydney Darling Square’s position and refurbishment complement the development of the Darling Square precinct and surrounding area.

“The Darling Square precinct continues to undergo a large amount of development and improvement and the area is thriving, particularly since the opening of the International Convention Centre. With the abundance of dining and entertainment attractions nearby, Novotel Sydney Darling Square is in a prime position to capitalise on this investment in infrastructure and it is an exciting time to be part of the Darling Harbour precinct.”

Chin Fen Eu, CEO of Frasers Hospitality REIT said that new look and newly renamed Novotel Sydney Darling Square is the perfect option for guests looking to stay in the rejuvenated Darling Square precinct.

“The complete renovation of this asset has been an exciting project for us. The location on the door step of ICC Sydney and Darling Harbour positions the hotel extremely well to cater to a diverse range of customers coming to the area for different reasons. We are delighted with the design that Batesmart have created and it’s been very pleasing to see it come to life. The repositioning of the product makes this the ideal time to strengthen our partnership with AccorHotels in Australia and move the hotel to a management agreement. We have confidence that the strong presence AccorHotels enjoys in the precinct will benefit the property and allow it to flourish and achieve strong performance over a sustained period.”
