Blue Hotel

6 Cowper Wharf Rd. , The Wharf at Woolloomooloo
Sydney , New South Wales , Australia

Situated inside a former cargo-handling facility, this wharf-side hotel is within a 10-minute walk of major attractions, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens and central business district. Inside, colored glass and metallic dome lights contrast with the building’s original architecture and machinery, including corrugated iron and oversize pulleys. The 100 guest rooms are decorated in mostly neutral tones, with blue-mohair accents, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the marina, botanical gardens, or Potts Point district. The Waterbar serves handcrafted cocktails beneath a curtain of Swarovski crystals, while five surrounding restaurants specialize in Australian, Asian, and Indian cuisine.
