All have heated bathroom flooring, luxurious neutral décor, Frette bed linens, a custom entertainment system and Bang & Olufson Bluetooth speakers. An elegant cocktail trolley has a range of wines and spirits and the bathroom has fragrant Aqua de Parma toiletries. I loved the Parisian feel to the room and the pictures of pearls which give a nod to the Paspaley family, recognised as the pioneers of the Australian South Sea pearling industry, who own the property.
The Hotel’s La Marchande restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in a contemporary space on the corner of Wall Street and Water.
