Located in Sydney’s idyllic harbourside suburb of Woolloomooloo, Ovolo Woolloomooloo is the brand’s flagship Australian hotel. Situated in the heart of the popular wharf precinct, a short walk to the city’s central business district, the hotel is surrounded by an extensive variety of much-loved dining and nightlife options, including the hotel’s very own 100% plant-based, Alibi Bar & Kitchen, the first of its kind in Australia.
“Ovolo Woolloomooloo is positioned in the old Finger Wharf building dating back to 1912. While today the building is the defining architecture for the cosmopolitan harbourside suburb, back then Woolloomooloo was a tough working class neighbourhood that brought mixed blessings; employment, celebration and hard-won respect.”
The 100-year-old heritage listed Finger Wharf building has been carefully renovated and reimagined by award-winning architecture firm Hassell Studio and designer Matt Sheargold. The building kept its rich history while incorporating life to the Woolloomooloo Wharf precinct, making Ovolo a destination for Sydneysiders and tourists alike.
Featuring 100 guest rooms and suites, this hotel highlights the brand’s home-away-from-home ethos with all rooms designed with effortless living in mind. They feature picturesque Sydney Harbour views, 24-hour room service, gym and pool access, and a perfect mix of heritage-listed tradition and contemporary luxury.
The hotel features 8 different room types, with two rooms designed for a rock star. The INXS and AC/DC rooms, a nod to both former iconic Australian bands, have been loaded with a round cocktail bar, unique ‘reading nook play’ area, with hammock and mirrored walls and ceiling, oversized couches, 65” smart TV and extra mini bar items. All rooms boast Sydney City skyline views with edgy Rock ‘n’ Roll styling.
Each room offers a flatscreen LED television, an iPad Mini, 24-hour room service, Apple TV, additional wall plugs, phone chargers, and Amazon’s Alexa cloud-based voice service, assisting guests with just about every command. It also comes with Ovolo’s signature freebies – free continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, social hour every evening at Alibi Bar & Kitchen located in the main area of the hotel, self-serve laundry and in-room mini-bar, meaning that there’s no need to restock those beer and wine bottles! Plus, Ovolo even gives its guests a “Loot Bag” encouraging them to raid the mini bar during their stay.
With carefully considered architecture and inviting pockets, Ovolo Woolloomooloo provides guests with a luxurious haven to meet, relax and unwind.
