Location. Located on a pier overlooking Woolloomooloo Bay, the Ovolo Woolloomooloo is adjacent to the Royal Botanical Gardens and within walking distance of the central business and shopping district and Sydney Opera House.
Hotel Features. This hotel was built on a finger wharf over Woolloomooloo. This hotel is part of a large redevelopment that incorporates elements of the original circa-1915 wharf to create an eye-pleasing complex with a marina, fine-dining village, luxury private apartments, and the hotel.
The atrium-level bar offers a large range of cocktails in a walk-through area cleverly designed to incorporate cozy catch-up nooks. A multitude of soft tea-light candles, rich brown lounge chairs, oversized ottomans, and large cushions complete the picture. Other lures include the indoor heated pool with adjoining deck and patio. WiFi is free in common areas, and guests may access secured covered parking, valet parking (surcharge), and an airport shuttle service on request with 24-hour notice. Continental breakfast is also offered for a fee. Meeting facilities are available, and babysitting services are an option for hire.
Guestrooms. Each guestroom also has a separate bedroom for a spacious feel. Ovolo Woolloomooloo's 100 soundproof guestrooms feature elements of the original historic wharf building and overlook the Woolloomooloo Bay Village or Sydney Harbor. Beds are dressed with 250-thread-count cotton linens and goosedown duvets and pillows. 32-inch high-definition LCD televisions are equipped with cable service, ESPN, and DVD players.
