Marriott Autograph Property, Pier One Sydney Harbour, will embark on an exciting 2019 as it completes a five-year transformation journey with a $10 Million Dollar investment for a dazzling design refurb of all rooms and suites.

The hotel accommodation will receive a complete design refresh from acclaimed heritage architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, including their top suites offering unbeatable views floating above the Harbour. Commencing this June, works will be completed by September 2019 with minimum disruption to in-house guests and hotel inventory due to a carefully staged renovation process.

Kim Mahaffy, General Manager of Pier One Sydney Harbour says;

“The design transformation of our rooms marks the final piece of the puzzle for an exciting journey for the hotel. We are now one of Sydney’s pre-eminent lifestyle hotels, with a luxurious, yet accessible offering for guests looking for a distinctively Sydney experience right on Sydney Harbour. By working with a design firm that is renowned for their heritage renovations, we hope to bring this to life for our guests, with a focus on sourcing Australian and locally-made materials and furniture.”

Sydney-based architects Tonkin Zulaika Greer have taken their design inspiration from the glistening harbour and rich maritime history central to Pier One.

Tim Greer, Principal, Tonkin Zulaika Greer says; “We want to connect the harbour visually and aesthetically to the interiors of the hotel through our use of materials, tones and colours with a nod to Sydney’s rich maritime architecture throughout. Rooms will be seamlessly connected with the stunning architecture already seen throughout the hotel.”

Marriott International took over Pier One Sydney Harbour in February 2014 and has undertaken a series of major renovations of the central facilities including entry lobby, bar, restaurant and conferencing facilities in 2014 by Bates Smart Architects. The Gantry Restaurant opened in early 2015 to critical acclaim, earning its reputation as one of Australia’s most highly regarded hotel restaurants. In 2016 the hotel launched The Kerrigan, a harbourside pop up smoke house providing Australian BBQ style fare in a casual waterside setting.

In 2017, Pier One Sydney Harbour launched a series of activations that firmly connected the hotel with unique Sydney experiences for guests and visitors, including Igloos on the Pier over Winter; The Pool by Pier One, a harbourside pool over Summer; and The Retreat by Pier One celebrating wellness and mindfulness over February and March.

Throughout the hotel’s transformation to a five-star property, Pier One Sydney Harbour has steadily grown its ADR. This rate will continue to grow in 2019 in line with the elevated guest experience to reflect its newly landed positioning as a lifestyle hotel in a luxury location.
