Crowne Plaza readies to return to Sydney CBD with special opening offer

As the countdown to its October 2020 opening draws closer, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is offering a generous, city staycation deal that will have guests booking their next romantic escape or family get-together in record time.

In support of #holidayherethisyear and to celebrate its imminent arrival, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is offering 50% off its best flexible rate from now until 31 October 2020. The offer is valid for stays from 1 October onwards and dependent on availability. Bookings are to be made via

After a long, 10 year hiatus, the Crowne Plaza brand is soon to return to Sydney CBD and standing an elegant 13-storeys tall, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour will offer guests a truly inviting, sanctuary away from home where feeling safe, inspired and connected has never been more appealing.

Connecting with a conscience is truly at the heart of each interaction within the hotel and covid-safe safety measures have been thoughtfully implemented to ensure a memorable and personal experience for guests.

Located on the corner of Bathurst and Sussex Street and featuring 152- guestrooms which showcase the very best in contemporary design, there is a luxury of space that not only flows throughout the suites but across all levels of the brand new-build hotel which in the current climate is a welcomed feature and one that sets it apart.

With floor-to-ceiling windows a feature in all rooms, each of the guestrooms are divided into four distinct zones – a desk space for work, a sofa area to unwind, king size beds for a good night’s sleep and well-lit, spacious bathrooms replete with Antipodes amenities.

From USB outlets and wireless charging stations throughout the hotel, to in-room Bluetooth speakers, unlimited high-speed wifi and Chromecast TVs, the generously sized guestrooms are brimming with technology-led features designed to blend the 9-to-5, 5-to-9 day. Accompanied by IHG’s Sleep Advantage program, which includes plush bedding, pillow menus, aromatherapy spray, sustainably sourced amenities and a bedtime ritual guide, the guestrooms are there to restore, inspire and rejuvenate.

Other hotel facilities that encourage guests to relax, unwind and spread out include a rooftop heated infinity pool with city views, a 24-hour fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment and three food and beverage venues. With Covid-19 restrictions in place, unfortunately some hotel facilities are not in operation. The venues which currently aren’t operating include the gymnasium and La Bella Trattoria & Bar.

While La Bella Trattoria & Bar restaurant is temporarily closed, TWO 88 Bar & Kitchen, with its striking interiors, locally sourced menu and extensive wine and cocktail list will be operating six days a week. For those on the go, Café 58 which is located just off the lobby, operates seven days a week.

With an aim to nurture travellers for years to come, IHG is well-known for its commitment to sustainability and Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is no different. The hotel will champion IHG’s Greener Stay program and has retail sized sustainably sourced organic Antipodes skin care products, paperless check-in and event contracting processes, digital compendiums, no single-use plastics in conference rooms, Orca food waste processing machines, bamboo key cards, electric car charging stations and a partnership with Go Get.

Taking just three minutes to walk to Darling Harbour, five minutes to Pitt Street Mall and under 10 minutes to the International Convention Centre and Barangaroo, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is undoubtedly one of the most connected hotels in the city and is a hotel that consciously aims to connect with its guests on every level.
