Holiday Inn Darling Harbour, Sydney

Darling Harbour is adjacent to the city centre of Sydney, Australia. It is also a large recreational and pedestrian precinct that is situated on the western outskirts of the Sydney central business district. The locality extends northwards from Chinatown, along both sides of Cockle Bay to King Street Wharf on the east, and to the suburb of Pyrmont on the west. Cockle Bay is just one of the waterways that makes up Darling Harbour, which opens north into the much larger Port Jackson. It’s close enough to walk to from the central business district—you can see the city skyline up close from the Harbourside Shopping Centre. The water—for a city enamoured of the sea—is an attraction by itself, but it is the many entertainment and shopping facilities on the site that make Darling Harbour doubly attractive.

Darling Harbour, Sydney

The contemporary, heritage-style Holiday Inn Sydney Darling Harbour is a former 1890s wool store in the heart of Sydney’s cosmopolitan Darling Harbour. You’ll find it opposite Sydney Entertainment Centre music venue, steps from bustling Chinatown and Cockle Bay Wharf. You can hop on a shuttle service to arrive from Sydney Airport, 8km away.

Hotel Lobby

You can whizz around the city centre on the efficient Monorail and Light Rail from the nearby stop at Paddy’s Markets, where you’ll bag discount clothing and souvenirs. Marvel at sea life through a glass-bottomed boat at Sydney Aquarium, a 10-minute walk away, and take in the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House on a harbour cruise.

The hotel’s location on the city-side of Darling Harbour means it’s a breeze to get to the central business district, 500 metres away, and Circular Quay, 1km away. Wash down bar snacks with boutique beers like Pure Blonde in bright JBs Bar at the hotel. You can work up an appetite in the MiniGym and sauna on the 3rd floor.
