Westin Sydney

1 Martin Pl., Sydney, New South Wales, 2000, Australia

The Westin hotel chain is renowned for its heavenly beds—in Sydney it has heavenly service, too. The staff here is cool, efficient, capable, and stylish as at a boutique hotel, but without the hipper-than-thou attitude. Located on stately Martin Place in the center of Sydney's central business district, the hotel's 31-story building incorporates the ornate, Victorian-era shell of Sydney's former General Post Office and has recently restored its bell tower. Heritage Rooms, in the original building, have soaring ceilings, tall windows, and opulent design. High-design Tower Rooms have stainless steel, aquamarine glass, and floor-to-ceiling windows for panoramic city views. A new intimate area just off The Bar is The Room, where drinks and light meals are served next to an open fireplace; the upscale Mosaic Restaurant prefers a saffron and soft pink ambiance. Two styles of afternoon tea—heritage and Mad Hatter's (the latter complete with little cakes with clock faces)—are served in The Bar.
