Boutique hotels are the new upcoming and trendy locations in Sydney at the moment. From iconic destinations to the newly opened New York-inspired properties, this city has it all, if you're after a chic, cool boutique hotel. Here's my pick of Sydney's beat boutique accommodation:
The Storrier - Ticked away in a laneway in Kings Cross, this brand-new hotel is filled with work created by Sydney artist Tim Strorrier. The interiors are eye-catching, while the white marble reception desk clashes against the posh ambience. Price Superior suites start from $245 per night; deluxe $270; executive $345.
Diamant Hotel - If the dramatic city views from the terrace balcony don't excite you, then the little treasures in your room, like the Kevin Murphy hair products, Xbox, iPod docking station and a pillow menu should. Located in the convinient location of Darlinghurst/KingsCross, this hotel is great for business travellers, who might be after a quirky and stylish experience. Price Deluxe rooms $188; district and harbour rooms $228; courtyard rooms $268; William Street boulevard rooms $268; courtyard suites $468.
Fraser Suites - The most amazingly located pad, right in the heart of the city, this is Sydney's first five-star all-suite residence, designed by London's famous Foster + Partners (same guys who built the Beijing Airport and London's Millennium Bridge - are you impressed, yet?). This 42-level accommodation has views to diet for and a penthouse that will break the bank and melt your eyes - worth the $1500 a night, you decide. Price Studio deluxe from $239 per night.
Ravesi's - For the surf, sand and sun lovers, this boutique hotel located bang opposite one of the Australia's most famous beaches, Bondi.
