That moment when you walk into your Sydney hotel room and the first word is ‘wow’ what a Darling Harbour view revealed by this Hyatt Regency Sydney review.

With corner rooms offering panoramic views over Sydney’s picturesque Darling Harbour, a wow moment at Hyatt Regency Sydney is definitely on the cards.

Hyatt Regency Sydney review

Opened in December 2016, the hotel is the first opened in Australia by Hyatt in the past 17 years. The new 24-story tower includes 222 additional guestrooms, making Hyatt Regency Sydney the largest upscale, full-service hotel in Australia with a total room count of 892.


While one of the 130 Club hotel rooms and suites in the hotel’s new accommodation tower from floors 8-15 may initially look like an expensive option, the Regency Club Lounge with its complimentary continental breakfast, evening canapés and complimentary beverages takes much of the ouch away.  Downstairs the exclusive check-in and concierge also go a long way towards making what can be a fairly frantic lobby into a very friendly place.

Cockle Bay and Sydney’s ICC

Cocooned inside your luxe room, you won’t give a thought to what’s outside except to gaze across the blue water and down onto Cockle Bay. The roof of SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is within serious spitting distance, and it’s just three minutes to walk to restaurants lining the harbour edge at Cockle Bay.

About 10 minutes of walking over the Pyrmont Bridge will have you heading into Sydney’s International Convention Centre.


After a serious day of sightseeing or business meetings, your hotel choices include one of the city’s best rooftop bars, Zephyr or a luxurious soak in the oversized bath which overlooks the freeway and the harbour below. Even the loo has a view here, so if you don’t want to show the world what you’ve got, please pull the curtains.

Where is it?

You’ll find Hyatt Regency Sydney at 161 Sussex Street, Sydney. 

Comfort levels are high too with a plush robe and slippers for late night relaxing and premium quality bathroom products.

For another amazing Sydney view, consider Sofitel Darling Harbour.

In Brisbane, try Emporium South Bank for the amazing city and river views.

Bottom line:  Prices for a 50 – 60 square metre Suite with a king bed and Regency Club benefits start at $522 per night.  Prices for a Harbour View King start at $312 per night.
