Hotel operator named for boutique Sydney hotel

Hilton will open Australia’s first Curio Collection hotel at the end of the year after striking a management agreement with Singapore’s M&L Hospitality to operate its new West Hotel in central Sydney.


Located at 65 Sussex St and with interior design by Woods Bagot, West Hotel is a key part of the revitalisation of the surrounding western corridor, offering discerning travellers a unique stay in the heart of the city.


Woods Bagot Senior Associate Jacqui Senior said the introduction of Hilton Curio to Sydney is representative of the city’s expanding hotel sector and reflects M&L’s commitment to the Australian market.

“Responding to the demand for an increasingly localised experience, West Hotel offers guests a design-focused destination that will support the growth of the city’s emerging precinct at Barangaroo.”

Comprising 182 guest rooms including four suites, a restaurant, bar and meeting space, the hotel creates a relaxed oasis for guests to retreat from the urban streetscape. The foliage-covered atrium draws the outside in while providing glimpses to the streetscape through the leafy internal void.


Strong design elements have been crafted throughout the interiors. Taking cues from the glazed, punctuated facade by architects Fitzpatrick + Partners, the interiors scheme references the colours and textures of the Australian landscape in a contemporary interpretation.


The hotel will open to guests in December 2017. Read the full story in the Australian Financial Review.
