After a 10-year hiatus, the Crowne Plaza brand has returned to Sydney's CBD and Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is now officially open.

Opened by The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of New South Wales, the ribbon cutting ceremony was also attended by some of the industry's big names, including: CEO of Tourism Australia, Phillipa Harrison; CEO of The Accommodation Association of Australia, Dean Long; the CEO of Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) Margy Osmond; and the General Manager of DNSW, Stephen Mahoney.

Standing an elegant 13-storeys tall, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour offers guests a truly inviting sanctuary away from home, where feeling safe, inspired and connected has never been more appealing.

Located on the corner of Bathurst and Sussex Street and featuring 152 guestrooms which showcase the very best in contemporary design, there is a luxury of space that not only flows throughout the suites but across all levels of the new-build hotel which in the current climate is a welcomed feature and one that sets it apart.

With floor-to-ceiling windows a feature in all rooms, each of the guestrooms are divided into four distinct zones - a desk space for work, a sofa area to unwind, king size beds for a good night's sleep and well-lit, spacious bathrooms replete with Antipodes amenities.

From USB outlets and wireless charging stations throughout the hotel, to in-room Bluetooth speakers, unlimited high-speed wifi and Chromecast TVs, the generously sized guestrooms are brimming with technology-led features designed to blend the 9-to-5, 5-to-9 day. Accompanied by IHG's Sleep Advantage program, which includes plush bedding, pillow menus, aromatherapy spray, sustainably sourced amenities and a bedtime ritual guide, the guestrooms are there to restore, inspire and rejuvenate.

Other hotel facilities that encourage guests to relax, unwind and spread out include a rooftop heated infinity pool with city views, a 24-hour fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment and three food and beverage venues.

Taking just three minutes to walk to Darling Harbour, five minutes to Pitt Street Mall and under 10 minutes to the International Convention Centre and Barangaroo, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is undoubtedly one of the most connected hotels in the city and is a hotel that consciously aims to connect with its guests on every level.
