Glowing Gold: Check-In To Sydney's First-Ever Sky Lobby At A By Adina

TFE Hotels’ brand-new premium hotel experience, A by Adina Sydney, has officially opened its doors, becoming Sydney’s newest landmark CBD hotel.

TFE Hotels’ brand-new premium hotel experience, A by Adina Sydney, has officially opened its doors, becoming Sydney’s newest landmark CBD hotel.

The new A by Adina Sydney has opened its doors, heralding a golden new era for the Harbour City.

The hotel’s approach to detailed simplicity in design extends beyond the arrival of Sydney’s first-ever sky lobby – setting the city’s world-famous skyline aglow, 100 metres up, wrapped in a four-storey, glass-encased ‘golden crown’.

Owned and operated by TFE Hotels and developed by TOGA Group, A by Adina Sydney forms the showpiece of a 26-storey tower at 2 Hunter Street. An architectural delight – inside and out – that towers above Australia’s oldest street and Sydney CBD’s most prestigious address.

A by Adina Hotel General Manager, Amanda Cottome, said VIP treatment for A by Adina Sydney guests extends beyond the intuitive service to in-room technology.

In a first for the brand, TFE Hotels says the hotel heroes an integrated control system that seamlessly readies any one of its 194 apartments (82 studio, 104 one-bedroom, eight two-bedroom apartments) the moment guests commence check-in.

“A bit like a high-tech butler, it goes to work and prepares the room by switching on the air conditioner and setting a comfortable room temperature, before closing the blinds and turning off all the lights,” explained Amanda.

“When guests swipe their key card, the technology sets off a sensory welcome experience, like a big reveal, automatically raising the blinds on floor-to-ceiling windows and turning on the lights. It’s a seamless arrival experience that’s designed to delight. Guests don’t have to think about how anything works – not even things like extractor fans in the bathroom, which operate automatically via sensors.”

Details which echo one of the A by Adina brand’s key pillars – Hotel Living – features throughout including a range of one-bedroom apartments with ‘blackout bedrooms’ (without windows), perfect for jetlagged guests, flight crew or those working in the performing arts.

Amanda said the hotel also features 12 ‘accessible rooms’, sized like penthouses; and corner rooms (especially from Level 14 up) with spectacular views down George Street, all the way to The Rocks and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“The design for this hotel has come from our lifestyle and our city and, in a world where we all too often look to overseas for inspiration, that’s something we are extremely proud of.”

In keeping with its surrounds, 2 Hunter Street – designed by JPW Architects, with interiors by Carr Design Group – sublimely marries Sydney’s past, present and future.

The hotel’s golden glow comes down to the clever interplay between the building’s fabric, enhanced by nature. No special effects. Just bronze-tinted aluminum cladding and use of metallic-coated synthetic mesh, embedded into glass panels, resulting in a golden façade, illuminated by the sun.

Co-located within the hotel’s ‘golden crown’ is Dean & Nancy on 22 – a sophisticated cocktail bar and dining experience that has been created and will be run by the very same Maybe Sammy team who came in at #11 on the World’s Best Bar list for 2020.

A by Adina Sydney’s lower-ground entry foyer will lead into a new Italian eatery by acclaimed Sydney restaurateur, Maurice Terzini, of Icebergs and CicciaBella fame. Boasting indoor and alfresco dining, the restaurant opens onto Curtin Place – a previously dormant laneway (between George and Pitt Streets), revitalised as part of A by Adina Sydney’s master plan.
