New Sydney Hotels: 2022’s Latest Ways to Stay

Travel is opening back up for Sydney again and the good news is that along with all of our favourite old ways to stay there are some great new Sydney hotels that have opened in 2021 or are about to open their doors in 2022.  

We’ve put together a wrap of some of the best new additions to the Sydney hotel scene. While this list concentrates on the ones that opened this year and will open in the year to come, as most people couldn’t come to Sydney to stay since COVID-19 began we’re also letting a few late 2020 openings sneak onto the list.

Ready to see where you could be staying next? Let’s go…

Kimpton Margot Sydney, Sydney City

After years of anticipation, the boutique hotel pioneers Kimpton are finally coming to Australia with the Kimpton Margot Sydney set to open her doors in early 2022.

Every Kimpton hotel has its own unique identity and the Kimpton Margot Sydney is tapping into the artistic women who helped shape the Australian art scene in the 1930s. As well as setting the hotel in a historic Art Deco building on the edge of Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, the Kimpton Margot Sydney will also create an immersive art program with an eclectic lineup of local artists.

The Kimpton Margot Sydney features 172 luxury rooms and suites, a range of culinary experiences by Luke Mangan, a rooftop swimming pool, in-styled event spaces, and other hotel hallmarks.
