Part of the Marriott’s Autograph Collection, Pier One Sydney Harbour is superbly positioned on the spectacular waterfront, with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and right across Walsh Bay.

Housed in a renovated Federation warehouse the hotel blends its traditional exterior with chic contemporary interiors. The 189 rooms at Pier One are all kept simple in design, with clean cut lines and crisp white colour schemes quietly echoing the nautical location, which is enjoyed through large windows in the Waterside rooms. The Harbour View Suite is a step up even further, with beautiful exposed beams in its high vaulted ceiling and water views on two sides of the room, plus a fantastic standalone bath in the bathroom.
In a city famed for its dining options and gastronomical delights Pier One stands up with the best. The Gantry Restaurant & Bar boasts an enviable location right on the harbour and offers a wide selection of cocktails, to be followed by a menu of wholesome, innovative fine dining cuisine. Alternatively, opt for a more casual meal at The Kerrigan which specialises in home smoked barbequed meats alongside cider and locally brewed beers.
Located at historic Dawes Point, adjacent to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Rocks entertainment district, Pier One has a prime location for exploring the city. Head out for a stroll through the Royal Botanic Garden and over to Mrs Macquarie's Chair for some of the best views of the harbour and Opera House. Later you might want to pay a visit to the Opera House itself for a show or dinner, or head up to the top of Sydney Tower for panoramic views of the city. For the more active guests, start your day with a session in Pier One's Aspire Fitness centre.
