W Sydney has released a preview of its meeting and event space ahead of the highly-anticipated new luxury hotel’s opening in Q4 2022.
W Sydney’s undulating ribbon form rises through two elevated roadways on Sydney’s Darling Harbour, creating a spectacular waterfront experience, and will showcase 585 guestrooms, suites and studio suites – the largest W Hotel in the world – all with unparalleled city and harbourside views.
The new-build hotel’s event spaces will open up a whole new chapter for the industry in Australia. Set on Level Five, W Sydney’s dedicated event floor will raise the bar with design details that capture Darling Harbour and the cityscape. Great Room, spanning almost 600 square metres, features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbour, with styling that connects the interior with the hotel’s exterior.
W Sydney also features cutting-edge technology, with the latest generation LED wall displays in Great Room that can be configured as one enormous single wall, 14 metres wide and four metres high, or be split into two screens for smaller events. It boasts Australia’s first installation of projection mapping for individual banquet tables, and state-of-the-art LEDs to ensure crisp stunning images.
The hotel’s 1,300 square metres of event space will span eight versatile rooms and offer the latest in design and technology.
Craig Seaward, General Manager of W Sydney, said: “We are delighted to release a first glimpse of our unique W Sydney event floor. Situated on the Darling Harbour waterfront and one of Sydney’s most striking architectural landmarks, the new facilities bring together a spectacular Sydney setting with W’s bold interpretation of the modern meeting place.”
“We are excited to share these new event spaces with their bold, creative W spirit,” said Roxanne Markovina, Director of Sales and Marketing for W Sydney. “Design is at the forefront of everything that we do at W Sydney, and our exceptional light-filled spaces with their state-of-the-art technology will, without doubt, take Sydney’s conferences and events to the next level.”
W Sydney will also feature a two-storey rooftop bar, Level 29 WET Deck with heated infinity pool overlooking Darling Harbour, AWAY®Spa, FIT gym, all-day dining restaurant, Living Room bar, and offer direct access into the heart of the Darling Harbour waterfront precinct.
W Sydney is adjacent to Sydney’s International Convention Centre, and a short walk from the financial, dining and retail precinct of Barangaroo.
The new property was originally slated to launch in mid-2020. According to its website, W Sydney is now earmarked to open in November 2022.
