New luxury hotel for Sydney



Sydney has a new luxury hotel brand with the opening of the Fullerton Hotel Sydney in the iconic former General Post Office building at No. 1 Martin Place.

The opening marks the first international expansion of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts, the brand central to the waterfront precinct of The Fullerton Heritage by Marina Bay in Singapore, which includes two award-winning hotels; The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore.

The brand’s vision for the 416-room The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is to deliver a luxury hotel that is synonymous with warm hospitality and flair.

"We encourage our guests to embark on memorable journeys that are deeper, more colourful and more rewarding when they stay in our one-of-a-kind, landmark luxury hotels with prime addresses that are destinations unto themselves,” said Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale, general manager of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts.

‘We are excited to open The Fullerton Hotel Sydney in a landmark building that is steeped in character and history. It is our aim to provide hotel guests and visitors with heartfelt hospitality and memorable experiences, all while showcasing the beauty and heritage of the former Sydney GPO building to a wider audience both nationally and globally."



Phase one of the remediation and maintenance work on the building’s Martin Place and George Street façade is now complete.

This marks the conclusion of a broader program to re-connect locals with the historic Sydney landmark. Stonemason and Artist, an expert team with a combined stonemasonry experience of 334 years, undertook a 38,000-hour laborious, chemical-free cleaning process to restore the building’s façade to its former glory.

In addition to its extensive revitalisation program, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney plans to shine a spotlight on the GPO building’s unique stories through Fullerton Experiences, a bespoke program featuring complimentary heritage tours and events for both hotel guests and members of the public.

The 90-minute heritage tours will also showcase the intricate stonework and reveal little-known facts of bygone years.

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney will share more than its history as a former GPO building with its sister property The Fullerton Hotel Singapore; it will also feature authentic south-east Asian cuisines alongside modern Australian dishes in the new restaurant The Places.

Thinks dishes like pan-fried red emperor and braised wagyu short rib; or Singaporean chicken rice and maybe seafood laksa.

Another Fullerton tradition is the Signature Afternoon Tea.

Guest rooms will feature signature Harman Kardon bluetooth speakers, Nespresso machines with pods, Singaporean TWG teas, and an extensive pillow menu.

See www.fullertonhotels.com. Rooms are available from AUD$380 per night, inclusive of taxes.
