New Tank Stream Hotel offers great value accommodation for Sydney Festival and Sydney discovery tours
One of Sydney’s newest hotels, The Tank Stream hotel, located in the heart of the city’s heritage area, is offering great value accommodation during January for visitors wanting to explore the city and attend the Sydney Festival between 7 and 29 January.
The 4.5 star Tank Stream hotel is one of the best located hotels for the Sydney Festival, being just a short walk from the main Festival event venues in Hyde Park, Sydney Town Hall, The Domain, Barangaroo and Sydney Opera House. With train transport at the hotel’s front door, even venues such as Carriageworks at Redfern and Riverside Theatres at Parramatta are easily accessible.
This year’s Festival is promising an ‘exuberant, exciting and effervescent’ line up of international and Australian concerts, theatre, circus, art, workshops and children’s shows, including many free events.
Accommodation rates at the Tank Stream Hotel are available from just $199 per night through much of January, and include the Tank Steam’s unique ‘all-inclusive concept’, which provides guests with free high speed wi-fi and in-room movies, complimentary non-alcoholic mini bar items and Nespresso coffee.
There is a variety of room styles and sizes, all offering high-class bedding, in room facilities, work areas and ensuite bathrooms.
The Tank Stream officially opened in 2016, providing much needed high-class accommodation in the heart of the city.
The hotel is named after the stream that runs underneath the hotel. It had been a life source for the local Gadigal Aborigines for thousands of years, before Captain Arthur Phillip also saw the benefits of a fresh water source and established the first European colony at Bennelong Point in 1788.
The stream in those days was open, running from a swamp in Hyde Park, down through waterfalls across Bridge Street then out to what is now Circular Quay. While the Tank Stream is now fully covered, a historic Tank Stream walking tour is available to visitors to retrace the development of Sydney through the ages.
A perfect base for short and longer stays in Sydney, the Tank Stream Hotel is surrounded by many of city’s most celebrated restaurants, along with theatres, entertainment venues and the city’s finest shopping.
The hotel’s restaurant Le Petit Flot offers relaxed contemporary bistro style dining with an emphasis on share plates and local produce, and a laneway wine bar is the ideal spot to catch the vibrancy of the city and enjoy classic wines from around the world and light meals. The hotel can also arrange discounted access to nearby fitness centres and parking.
The Tank Stream Hotel is part of the international St Giles Premier Hotel collection, with the Sydney hotel joining St Giles’ hotels in cities such as London, New York, Kuala Lumpur and Manila.
