Kirketon Hotel, Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia

by Gaycation Magazine

Kirketon Hotel Entrance

Sydney, best known as the harbour city, is an Australian icon and continues to be popular with domestic and international visitors. Sparkling both day and night, the city reflects the Australian character— extroverted and a bit cheeky, but warm, outgoing and friendly—and this vibrant city sure knows how to party! Darlinghurst is a densely populated suburb of Sydney with the majority of residents living in apartments or terraced houses. Once a slum and red-light prostitution district, Darlinghurst has undergone urban renewal since the 1980s to become a rather upmarket, cosmopolitan, gay-friendly, and diverse area. Places such as Victoria Street (which joins Darlinghurst and Kings Cross) are known as culturally rich destinations. The main thoroughfare of Darlinghurst is considered to be Oxford Street which is well-known around the world as the centre of Sydney’s gay community, and is home to a number of gay venues. In recent years, Oxford Street has garnered a reputation as being Sydney’s primary “nightclub strip”, popular with both gay and straight clubbers, and surpassing the notorious red-light district of Kings Cross in popularity.

Spacious Rooms

Opened in 1999 with a Burley Katon Halliday original design, the Kirketon, alongside Salt Restaurant, immediately claimed the title of Australia’s original boutique hotel. Incorporating the stark and cool minimalist style of the day to its architecture and interiors, and aloof ambiance offered the equivalent design narrative to every guest experience. Acquired by 8Hotels in 2003, the Kirketon rapidly and consistently achieved full occupancy while maintaining its reputation as an iconic boutique hotel through a thoughtful repositioning focused on incomparable value and guest hospitality. In 2008 the Kirketon Hotel went through another transformation. Maintaining 8Hotels core values whilst showcasing a stunning, sensuous design experience replacing the hotel’s minimalist history with contemporary elegance reminiscent of great Parisian boutique hotels and the new wave of New York properties. Soft furnishings, luxury finish, practicality, and comfort were expressed while creating individual elements of Sydney cool.

It’s the perfect gay-friendly hotel for any LGBT traveller to Sydney.
