Waldorf Astoria plans to expand into Australia with the signing of Waldorf Astoria Sydney, set to open in early 2025. The luxury property will be part of AW One Circular Quay’s mixed-use development One Circular Quay. Given its prime harborside location, Waldorf Astoria Sydney will boast views of Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

 

Construction started on the 28-floor hotel, expected to boast 179 guestrooms and 41 suites. The new hotel marks the brand’s first foray into Australia, joining six Waldorf properties in the Asia Pacific region and more than 30 others around the world. Twenty additional Waldorf Astoria hotels are in the pipeline worldwide. One Circular Quay will also include a luxury apartment tower.

 

“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 Matt Schuyler, chief brand officer, 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.”

 

Waldorf Astoria Sydney will boast a Waldorf Astoria Spa, two original restaurant concepts, a rooftop bar with unparalleled views, and Peacock Alley, a signature space in Waldorf Astoria properties.

Hotel Montalembert Review

When my daughter, Sharon, traveled to Paris in 2020, a month before the COVID-19 pandemic, she met her friend whose travel agent booked them at Hotel Montalembert. I recognized the name as one of Anne Jousse’s B. Signature Hotels & Resorts Group because I had stayed at its sister property, Hotel Bel Ami, in 2018. That’s where the hands-on, greet-guests-by-name Laurence Guinebretière, general manager of both hotels, (she commutes between the two on foot in about 10 minutes) had described its chic appeal. Sharon concurred. So, the Rive Gauche hotel was high on my list of “must-stays” during my fall 2021 trip to Paris.

Choose São Paulo for Stylish Meetings and Events

Rio de Janeiro, with its mountain- rimmed beaches and balmy weather, might be Brazil’s most iconic city, but São Paulo — or Sampa, as locals affectionately call it — rivals as the economic and cultural capital of South America’s largest country. Justifiably compared to New York, the sprawling metropolis of 12.5 million inhabitants boasts some of the Southern Hemisphere’s best dining, museums and entertainment. From Michelin- starred restaurants to legendary nightclubs that roar until the late morning to exquisite art galleries like MASP, São Paulo exudes endless sophistication and excitement. Cosmopolitan and welcoming, Paulistas (São Paulo locals) speak English well and love to share their hometown’s charms with visitors. As Latin America’s most important financial hub, the city naturally attracts meeting planners with first-rate MICE amenities including convention centers, business hotels and trade show venues.
