The Langham Sydney – A refined and charismatic hotel with a suburban feel.
Almost lost among rows of renovated townhouses, this boutique-style hotel offers peace and solitude. But The Rocks, a historical area packed with bars and cafés, is only ten minutes on foot, and a path from the hotel winds past renovated wharves to the base of the iconic Harbour Bridge. Spacious enough for two doubles, the Deluxe Rooms feature pastel colors and modern art. Bonuses are the large TVs, coffee machines, and plentiful storage space. The Langham also offers a decent gym, a huge spa, and a large indoor pool. Staying or not, certainly pop in for a spot of High Tea at the famed Palm Court café.
