The hotel boasts a storied history dating back to 1966, and the magnificent Wentworth Ballroom has hosted some of the city’s most legendary events, including the inaugural ARIA Awards. As one of Sydney’s largest ballrooms, it is adorned with 1960s mirrored high ceilings, offering a grand setting for events of up to 750 guests, complemented by versatile breakout spaces, a sophisticated foyer reflecting the French Art de Vivre, and state-of-the-art technology.
