01 March 2024


In a flamboyant flourish of style and a dash of panache, The Sebel Sydney Martin Place has thrown open its doors, fresh from a lavish multi-million-dollar makeover that’s set to send ripples through Sydney’s hotel scene.

This isn’t just any refurbishment; it’s an extravagant reimagining that transforms The Sebel into an 86-room sanctuary of bespoke luxury, warmth, and intimate charm that stamps a bold, central city footprint for The Sebel brand, under the grand umbrella of the world-renowned hospitality giant, Accor.

Nestled snugly on Philip Street, this gem offers its guests the pulsating heart of Sydney right on their doorstep, wrapped up in The Sebel’s signature away-from-home lifestyle that’s as comforting as a warm hug.

The interior is a masterpiece curated by the design maestros at Stack Studio, blending the building’s historic charm with a zest of cosmopolitan flair, all inspired by its iconic Martin Place setting.

It’s a place where comfort meets utility, style dances with sophistication, and guests are treated to a visual feast of elegant lighting, striking artworks and corridors that dazzle with playful carpets and ambient lighting.


Upon stepping into this haven, guests are warmly embraced by The Sebel hosts, ready to tailor the guest service experience around the clock, amidst a reception area that’s been spruced up with modern details and a sprinkle of elegance.

The guest rooms, be it the Superior King, Deluxe King, or the Classic Queen, are havens of tranquility, decked out in shades that whisper the language of The Sebel brand, with dashes of neutral hues and mustard tones that echo the warmth of Sydney’s storied buildings. The rooms boast kitchenettes graced with Italian Terrazzo marble, a signature touch sourced directly from Europe, adding a Mediterranean serenity to the bustling CBD.

And it doesn’t stop there. The Sebel Sydney Martin Place is a trove of luxurious amenities designed to pamper and please.

From climate-controlled rooms with kitchenettes featuring a plush, upholstered microwave and a Nespresso machine (complete with caramel, hazelnut, or vanilla syrups for that barista-touch) to premium self-care goodies and sustainable toiletries by Biology, this place has it all. Not to mention the in-room mini-bars stocked with the finest Australian snacks and drinks, including boutique beers, wines, and ready-to-pour cocktails that promise a sensory journey right from your room.

Paul Salter, the Managing Director at Salter Brothers, couldn’t hide his enthusiasm, proclaiming the rejuvenated city-centre property as a unique offering that Sydney CBD has been waiting for. Meanwhile, Adrian Williams, the Chief Operating Officer PME at Accor Pacific, highlighted the hotel’s commitment to enhancing customer service and sustainability, proudly announcing the elimination of single-use plastic throughout the hotel.

For those with a taste for the finer things in life, The Sebel Sydney Martin Place has partnered with top-notch food venues. From breakfast delights at Piccolo Me to in-room dining extravaganzas with Bastardo, guests are spoilt for choice, with the comfort of charging it all to their room. And for the tech-savvy, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi is the cherry on top, alongside a Chromecast-enabled Smart TV for binge-watching favourites in the lap of luxury.

With its transformation complete, The Sebel Sydney Martin Place is now a beacon of boutique elegance, inviting guests to dive into the vibrant Sydney scene, all from the comfort of an upscale, intimate setting that’s sure to make a splash.
