PARAMOUNT HOUSE HOTEL
A stay at one of Sydney’s most stylish new openings puts you in good company – you’ll barely have to stretch your legs to reach Paramount Coffee Project (ensuring you beat its weekend brunch queues), the Golden Age Cinema and its dimly lit, under-theradar bar, Chin Chin Sydney and wine bar Poly (an Ester restaurant spin-off offering some 160 drops).
Inside, there’s a focus on luxe touches sourced close by, like locally produced wine, Yulli’s Brews beers and LP’S Quality Meats, Aesop toiletries and Seljak Brand blankets (made in Tasmania from recycled and offcut wool). In the hallways, you’ll find artwork from China Heights gallery around the corner.
The rooms themselves have a homey feel – if your home is a well-styled city apartment, that is – with bang-on-trend exposed brick (it’s the former Paramount Pictures Studios HQ, after all), terrazzo-tiled showers and luxe Jardan furniture pared back with specially sourced vintage pieces. Once you peel yourself out of the Japanese-style timber bath, you’ll find the bed lined with linen sheets, a departure from typical crisp, cold hotel bedding. paramounthousehotel.com
