A few words from Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

In a city filled with glamorous five-star accommodation options, the iconic Sofitel Wentworth Sydney has the distinction of being Sydney's original luxury hotel.

With a rich history linked to the evolution of Sydney itself, the original ‘Wentworth' first opened its doors in 1855 as an 18-room boarding house a short walk west of the present hotel site, used by explorer-statesman William Charles Wentworth to publish one of the colony's first newspapers. His connection was enough to link the famous Wentworth name with the hotel forever and now more than 156 years later, the iconic Sofitel Sydney Wentworth hotel remains the place to stay and be seen in the city's heart.

The 21st century Sofitel delivers a luxury experience for discerning travellers with a touch of French inspiration, and a central address located in the heart of Sydney's central shopping and business districts.

Best of all its just a few minutes walk from the Sydney Opera House, the Rocks and Harbour Bridge. The Art Gallery of New South Wales, which is sponsored by Sofitel, is also close by for those who wish to check out the many permanent and visiting international exhibitions on display, such as Picasso now showing.

Every one of the hotel's 436 guest rooms are elegantly finished in rich, contemporary yet classic tones and feature the exclusive Sofitel MyBed, state-of-the-art equipment and sumptuous marble bathrooms. Many of the hotel's luxury suites feature Juliet balconies and overlook a central garden courtyard, for a touch of green in the heart of the city.
The courtyard is also a central theme for hotel's restaurant, Garden Court Restaurant, which not only overlooks the Wentworth's famous garden but takes its name from the urban oasis. Its floor to ceiling glass windows let the outdoors in for a refreshing dining experience.

Soirée is a sophisticated bar located adjacent to the lobby. It's the perfect location for a High Tea or late night out. With an enviable address on Philip Street, Soirée pays tribute to the rich heritage of the hotel and offers an extensive list of cocktails, wine and champagne with a modern dining menu. Afternoon Tea at the Wentworth is also served daily.

Club Sofitel on level five is exclusive to guests who stay in Luxury Rooms and Prestige Suites which share the top three floors of the hotel. Club Sofitel guests can enjoy private breakfasts, relax with Champagne and hors d'oeuvres in the evening and can opt for private check-in and a late check-out.

All guests have complimentary access to the Elixr Health Club located beneath the hotel.
