Australia’s first Curio Collection by Hilton, West Hotel Sydney, is bringing edgy, design-driven accomodation to the new Barangaroo precinct.
The property has 182 stylish guest rooms, including four suites. Each room is equipped with Bluetooth-enabled audio visual technology and an open work area, with suites offering a separate living area. The hotel also features a fully equipped gym and a private meeting/dining room.
Designed by Australian Architecture firm Fitzpatrick and Partners, with interiors by Woods Bagot, the hotel has a modern classic design theme, featuring deep tones with marble and brass accents. A strong botanical theme runs throughout the hotel, most evident in the beautiful open-air garden atrium and white waratah motif in the lobby.
The on-property restaurant, Solander Dining and Bar, is named after first fleet botanist Daniel Solander who arrived in Australia from England and helped discover several plant types.
The restaurant and bar (72 seats combined) offer a modern Australian all-day dining experience with a focus on seasonal and botanical produce. Leading the Solander team is executive chef David Vandenabeele who joins the hotel after a stint heading up hotel kitchens in New York.
“The philosophy behind Solander is to entwine Australian botanicals and fresh seasonal produce to create a memorable dining experience. With my background in French cooking and experience working around the globe, I wanted to create an internationally inspired menu with local, carefully selected products that are of the highest quality,” said Vandenabeele.
