Part of the family

Sydney's newest luxury hotel understands the importance of our furry friends, ensuring they are as pampered as we are.

03 September 2021


Lockdown has seen many families grow with the addition of a four-legged friend, and what better treat than to take your furry friend with you on a luxe holiday?

IHG Hotels & Resorts is launching Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Sydney in late 2021.  Kimpton has dog owners covered with all their needs met to keep pets pampered. The boutique hotel invites any pet to stay at no extra charge, no matter their size, as long as they fit in the lift.

Kimpton Sydney’s prized position in the heart of Sydney, combining art-deco heritage with eclectic style, is set to become a home away from home for stylish Sydneysiders and their pets.

Close by, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is the latest IHG property to add pet-friendly accommodation. Opened in October 2020, the hotel has just launched Pawfect Packages, allowing guests the perfect opportunity to staycation in Sydney’s CBD with their four-legged friend.

There’s no doubt every man and their dog will be ready for a change of scene once lockdowns end, and no pet should be left behind. International Dog Day is a great reason to celebrate our furry friends and think about where to go for some post-lockdown R & R.


As part of the Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour’s Pawfect Package, people and their pups will be treated to accommodation of their choice in either a Standard King Room, Superior King Room or Twin Deluxe room, plush dog bedding, food and water bowl facilities, as well as all-you-can-drink complimentary puppicino beverages at the Hotel’s Café 58.

The property even recently hosted a local famed Instagram pooch, Whopper the Berner (@thebigwhop), to test out the experience.
