Hotel Altamont

207 Darlinghurst Rd.
Sydney, New South Wales, 2010, Australia
TEL: 61-2-9360-6000

Patterned after the original Government House, this Darlinghurst hotel in a Colonial Georgian residence was once a nightclub (the hotel's name comes from a Rolling Stones concert at Altamont Freeway because the band members were regular guests here). Architect Furio Valich helmed the renovation that converted it to boutique hotel, where a shared “street” connects rooms. The interiors emphasize IKEA-style furnishings, stone, tiles, and tones of gray and brown. The Loft, with its tall ceiling, has hosted numerous celebrities including Mick Jagger. Pets are welcome.

Room to Book:

If you're booking a Deluxe room, request a courtyard view for no extra charge.

Insider Tip:

Visit the Art Gallery of New South Wales (about a kilometer away), which hosts over 30 changing exhibitions every year, as well as a gallery/museum dedicated to Aussie artist Brett Whiteley.
