Hilton is bringing its Waldorf Astoria brand to Sydney marking the Australian debut for the luxury hotel brand.

Waldorf Astoria Sydney will be part of AW One Circular Quay’s mixed-use development One Circular Quay, offering unrivalled views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Construction has already begun on the 220-room hotel, which is expected to open in early 2025.

The new Sydney hotel will mark the brand’s expansion into Australasia and will join six Waldorf Astoria properties in the Asia Pacific region.

“As the first Waldorf Astoria property to debut in Australia, Waldorf Astoria Sydney signals Hilton’s commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio to the world’s most sought-after destinations,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury & Lifestyle, Asia Pacific, Hilton.

“Our highly personalized, elegant service and iconic environments are at the heart of every hotel, and we look forward to delivering unforgettable experiences to our guests in Sydney.”

Comprised of 179 guest rooms and 41 suites, Waldorf Astoria Sydney will feature two original restaurant concepts, as well as a rooftop bar.
