Hilton’s vice president – Luxury & Lifestyle, Asia Pacific, Nils-Arne Schroeder, said Waldorf Astoria Sydney will offer unrivalled views of the city’s famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House, bringing Waldorf Astoria’s internationally acclaimed service to the heart of Australia’s eastern metropolis.
“As the first Waldorf Astoria property to debut in Australia, Waldorf Astoria Sydney signals Hilton’s commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio to the world’s most sought-after destinations,” he said.
“Our highly personalised, elegant service and iconic environments are at the heart of every hotel, and we look forward to delivering unforgettable experiences to our guests in Sydney.”
Construction has commenced on the 28-floor, 220-key luxury hotel, which is expected to open in early 2025, and Waldorf Astoria Sydney joins an extensive portfolio of more than 30 operating hotels under the brand, with 20 additional Waldorf Astoria properties in the pipeline worldwide.
The new Sydney hotel will mark the brand’s expansion into Australasia and will join six distinguished Waldorf Astoria properties in the Asia Pacific region. Each Waldorf Astoria is globally renowned for its landmark locations, unmatched personalised service and world-class culinary excellence.
Located in the One Circular Quay mixed-use development at 1 Alfred Street, which includes an adjoining 61-level luxury apartment tower, the hotel will be a home away from home for today’s discerning travellers.

The strong sense of arrival will extend through the impressive public spaces to the Waldorf Astoria Spa on level one and guest rooms.
Staying true to Waldorf Astoria’s commitment to culinary expertise, the luxury hotel will celebrate Sydney’s gastronomic excellence with two original restaurant concepts, as well as a rooftop bar featuring uninterrupted views of the stunning Sydney Harbour.
Peacock Alley, a signature space for Waldorf Astoria properties around the world, will serve as a central gathering place and feature the iconic Waldorf Astoria clock which pays homage to the history of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.
Offering graceful and personalised service through dedicated Personal Concierges, each team member of Waldorf Astoria Sydney will create extraordinary memories for guests with access to bespoke and luxurious offerings.
