Refurbed Sydney hotel aims to give back to the community

Song Hotel Sydney, a newly renovated hotel on the fringe of Sydney's CBD, is a little bit different to most hotels.

As a member of the YWCA Australia family, the 156-room hotel operates on a profit-for-purpose basis, with 100% of its profits directly contributing to the work of YWCA Australia, which has been supporting women across housing, services, and leadership pathways for 140 years.

The Song recently reopened its doors following a complete refurb. It is located on Wentworth Avenue with rooms starting from $170 per night on special deals.

“Our profit-for-purpose approach means that 25 cents of every dollar spent at Song Hotel Sydney contributes to the work of YWCA Australia,” said Jon Ackary, the hotel's general manager.

“Every guest that stays with us naturally becomes part of a greater good as soon as they walk through the door.

“We're a hotel with heart and staying with us is something to feel good about.”

In 2023, YWCA Australia provided 130,000 nights of safe accommodation to women, supported 6,000 individuals through a number of programs, and provided homes for 529 people, thanks to the support of Song Hotel guests and other funding sources.

“Our commitment to social impact doesn't come at the expense of guest satisfaction," Ackary added.

"We offer a hotel stay that is, in many ways, impactful – not only does it feel good for the soul but it's also convenient, great value, warm and welcoming.”

Following its re-launch, Song Hotel Sydney offers 156 newly renovated rooms, including 62 rooms with private balconies, six larger corner rooms, six accessible rooms and eight family rooms.

The four-star hotel also features an on-site restaurant and bar, Song Kitchen.
