Why we choose Four Seasons Hotel Sydney

The unbeatable location makes this modern hotel a leader in the luxury category

  • Trademark wine cellar stocks many of the country’s top labels
  • The Presidential Suite evokes a 1930s New York apartment
  • Trade saltwater for the largest outdoor hotel pool in Sydney

The goal at Four Seasons Sydney is to create a home away from home, and though you probably don’t mingle with a thousand other people in your own abode, the warm welcome rings true. Besides the posh décor and amenities that are de rigueur with this brand, it’s the location that makes this a top choice. You’ll be hard pressed to trim your itinerary given everything within easy reach.

It’s worth paying extra for the harbor view.

What you need to know about the hotel

The large hotel is constantly abuzz, but legendary Four Seasons hospitality ensures you always feel like a VIP

  • The Four Seasons served as headquarters for the Sydney Olympics Committee in 2000
  • Ask for the Chef’s Table at Kable’s—which debuted the idea in Sydney—to sample the tasting or selection menus
  • De-stress in the award-winning spa, which uses local fruits, salt and clay in the therapies

The Four Seasons seems to have a particular affinity for old prisons. Its Sydney location was built in 1982 on the site of Australia’s first jail and, for fans of the macabre, was the site of the country’s first and last hangings. In more recent decades, however, the hotel grounds are more likely to be studded with celebrities than criminals.

The classic high rise offers 531 rooms, including signature suites like the dramatic, theatrical Presidential Suite. We give a thumb’s up to the multi-million-dollar refurbishments over the past few years that have revamped guestrooms and the lobby to maintain Four Seasons standards.

Where is it and what's nearby

All eyes on the view—the hotel overlooks Sydney Opera House

  • Join a supervised BridgeClimb to the top of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge for a birds-eye view of the city
  • A Sydney visit isn’t complete without a trip to the iconic Opera House, whether for a performance or just the imagery
  • Shop like a celeb with “Chic in the City,” a tour that includes a stylist, chauffeur and insider fashion secrets

Sydney is a cosmopolitan city full of cultural attractions, surprisingly good food and wine and rock star shopping. Aussies are an active bunch, so it’s tough to get the full Sydney experience without getting physical. From surfing some of the most beautiful spots in the world (such as famed Bondi Beach) to climbing a bridge, your waistline will benefit from a “when in Rome” approach to the endless activity options. 

The Four Seasons has pride of place in The Rocks, the oldest and most sought-after district in the city—and a big part of what makes this hotel so attractive. Quaint cobblestone streets lead to absolutely everything on your to-do list: cafes, museums, galleries, boutiques and attractions like the Royal Botanic Gardens. Pack your walking shoes!

How to enjoy Australia

‘No worries’ is a phrase you’ll hear a lot in Australia and is a great way to sum up the antipodean approach to life. Not only are the locals gloriously stress-free, they’ll go out of their way to help and nothing is too much trouble

  • Uluru (Ayers Rock) can be reached in under three hours by airplane from Sydney or Melbourne. The red sandstone monolith is sacred to the Aboriginals
  • Get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas and other native wildlife in the Blue Mountains National Park, NSW or Raymond Island, Victoria
  • Learn to surf at Surfers Paradise near Brisbane, with year-round sunshine and perfect breaks, surf schools abound

For the ultimate view of Sydney, get up early and watch the sun break over the iconic sails of the Opera House. If you are more of an owl than part of the dawn chorus, take a night tour of the Sydney Observatory for a glimpse of the Southern Cross as well as views across the city. Melbourne’s theater and performing arts district is clustered around the Arts Centre near Southbank. It’s a great place to catch a show or simply enjoy a riverside walk.

The southern city of Melbourne has an almost European feel, with trattorias and pavement cafes tucked down cobbled laneways. From the upmarket designer stores of Chapel Street to the shaded riverside Royal Botanic Gardens, the city oozes elegance. Head down to the Mornington Peninsula and you’ll find countless beaches and hidden sandy coves. Swim with wild dolphins in Port Phillip Bay, hit the surf at Point Leo, or enjoy a barbie at Rosebud Beach.

  • A word from the hotel

    A visit to Sydney is not complete unless you visit Bondi Beach, the Sydney Opera House and complete the BridgeClimb, there really is no more spectacular view of our city.
