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.
