Patterned after the original Government House, this Darlinghurst hotel in a Colonial Georgian residence was once a nightclub (the hotel's name comes from a Rolling Stones concert at Altamont Freeway because the band members were regular guests here). Architect Furio Valich helmed the renovation that converted it to boutique hotel, where a shared “street” connects rooms. The interiors emphasize IKEA-style furnishings, stone, tiles, and tones of gray and brown. The Loft, with its tall ceiling, has hosted numerous celebrities including Mick Jagger. Pets are welcome.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
