Waldorf Astoria to debut in Australia in 2025




April 7, 2022 – Waldorf Astoria to debut in Australia in 2025

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts this week announced its expansion into Australia with the signing of Waldorf Astoria Sydney. The hotel is part of AW One Circular Quay’s mixed-use development, One Circular Quay, a harborside site. Waldorf Astoria Sydney will offer views of the Harbour Bridge as well as the Opera House.

Construction has begun on the 28-floor, 220-key luxury hotel, which is expected to open in early 2025.
Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma & Associates and Sydney-based Crone Architects will oversee the architecture. In all, there will be 179 guest rooms and 41 suites, as well as a Waldorf Astoria Spa on the first floor. Waldorf Astoria Sydney will “celebrate Sydney’s gastronomic excellence” with two original restaurant concepts, as well as a rooftop bar offering city and bridge views.

When it opens, the hotel will join a portfolio of more than 30 operating hotels under the brand, with 20 additional properties in the pipeline.

The new Sydney hotel will mark the brand’s first expansion into Australasia and will become the seventh Waldorf Astoria hotel in the Asia Pacific region.

Located in the One Circular Quay mixed-use development at 1 Alfred Street, which includes an adjoining 61-level luxury apartment tower, the hotel will be within walking distance of some of the city’s top shopping destinations and most prominent attractions. Beyond the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, these include the Royal Botanic Gardens and Museum of Contemporary Art.
