This historic blue-toned Woolloomooloo wharf may be familiar from previous incarnations as a W hotel and Taj, once known as Blue Sydney. It's now one of two Sydney properties owned by Hong Kong's clever Ovolo Hotels, known for wrapping convenient inclusions into their relaxed, modern properties. The 100 rooms and suites at Ovolo Woolloomooloo have been revamped with images of fish or fashionistas on headboards, neon accent colors, and industrial lights. This steel building once served as a warehouse for exporting wheat and wool and as a disembarkation point for Australian troops. These days, you're more likely to spot celebs boarding their yachts. Hassell studio has transformed the vast central public area into an intimate laneway, dotted with pavilions and pretty illuminated trees. The quirkily colored, casual Lo Lounge includes a bar, pool table, retro arcade games, bakery, work station, booths, and relaxation zones. Grab free breakfast, coffee, or daytime snacks here or swing by for happy hour (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) for free-flowing wine, beer, spirits, and canapés. An indoor pool and gym are in the pipeline.
