Here’s a holiday hack to feel a part of the Sydney in-crowd – check yourself in for a stay at Sydney’s newly reimagined boutique hotel, Crystalbrook Albion.
In a postcode-envy neighbourhood that is all about hidden surprises, the 35-room Surry Hills hotel will excite modern travellers thirsty for unpretentious luxe. Weaving heritage with contemporary design, the former 1903 school convent oozes clubhouse feels, perhaps inspired by the sophisticated chic of a private social club with its understated street appearance, eclectic art displays, rooftop oasis and redefined hotel services. Think craft gin happy hours, honour bar system and an open-door policy for your furry friend. These hotel creature comforts are hard to live without once they have entered your life.
