The Fullerton Hotel Sydney

‘ We are excited to open The Fullerton Hotel Sydney, housed in an icon steeped in history and dear to the Sydney community, it weaves the past and present together. Our vision for the 416-room hotel is simple: to deliver a unique, exquisite hotel that is synonymous with warm hospitality and one-of-a-kind flair to make guests’ stays more memorable, while showcasing the beauty and heritage of the former Sydney GPO building to a wider audience nationally and globally.’ – Mr Daryl Ng, Deputy Chairman, Sino Group

Prominently located in the heart of Sydney’s central business district at No. 1 Martin Place, the hotel will provide 416 exquisite rooms and suites across the Heritage Wing, which is housed in the former Sydney General Post Office, and the adjacent high-rise Tower Wing.

Construction of the iconic building, made of Sydney sandstone, began in 1866 and continued through to 1891. It immediately became the city’s centrepiece. For 150 years, the site has played a central role in the Sydney community. The majestic building, with its neoclassical design, including a central clock tower, housed the city’s General Post Office until 1983.

Like its sister hotel in Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is a seamless blend of culture, timeless elegance and contemporary hospitality. Reflecting The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts’ commitment to building a sense of identity by preserving the integrity of unique spaces, the restoration of the façade and conservation of the neoclassical sculptures and motifs of the property is a priority. The process has been carried out sensitively: specialists use chemical-free cleaning methods that are painstakingly delicate to ensure the character of the heritage site is retained.

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is a short stroll to attractions including Darling Harbour, NSW Art Gallery, the Strand Arcade and the Sydney Opera House, with some of the city’s most noteworthy restaurants literally steps away.

Gourmets can also enjoy authentic Southeast Asian dishes in Sydney, with delectable satay, chicken rice and laksa featured on the menu at the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Place.

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney offers world-class hospitality to global travellers; that is a hallmark of the Fullerton brand.

‘We are excited to have the opportunity to present The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts’ award-winning style of hospitality and hotel to Australia,’ says Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts. ‘We look forward to delivering a luxury hotel that can further contribute to Sydney’s growth as an international tourist destination, and showcase the beauty of the historic building to a wider audience, both nationally and globally.’
