There’s a sense of grandeur about Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney, a five-star hotel steps from Wynyard and Circular Quay. Perhaps it’s the abundance of marble – on terracotta-coloured columns that frame the lobby and the check-in counter, as well as the sandy, golden hues that cover the hallway floors and some bathrooms. Read on for the full review.
It gives the comfortable and spacious rooms of this CBD hotel a soothing, city-retreat feel, especially when you catch a glimpse of the city’s skyscrapers through a window. A recline in your soaking tub, which thankfully comes standard in all rooms, deepens the tranquillity.
Where is Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney?
Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney is located on Jamison Street in Sydney’s CBD, just off George Street and minutes from Wynyard Station. It’s a 25-minute drive from Sydney International and Domestic Airports.
What’s near Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney?
Next to Sydney’s central CBD train station Wynyard, Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney is right in the thick of the city. From here, the edge of Circular Quay and historic The Rocks precinct is a 10-minute walk, dining hub Barangaroo is less than that and shopping strip Pitt Street Mall is closer than 15 minutes by foot.
Two tiers of rooms make up Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney: those with or without the Jamison Club additions. Deluxe rooms, from the King Room to the Park Suite, encompass thoughtful touches like blackout drapes, robes and slippers, free wi-fi and bathtubs, with the latter inclusive of a full-size workspace and comfy sitting area overlooking the city.
The upgrade to Jamison Club rooms unlocks access to the namesake club, a lounge on level 31 that ensures you’ll be taken care of if you need refreshment. At breakfast, you can wander in and pluck a pastry (or two); in the evening, snag a canapé along with a beverage.
Restaurants and bars
A farm-to-table experience greets diners at Croft Restaurant, a bright eatery populated by cheerful palms and indoor plants. In the morning, it’s the site for the hotel’s buffet breakfast (pastries, frittata and the like) and in the evening, a refined dinner menu. Recent examples include charred swordfish with brown butter zucchini and Cajun-spiced spatchcock.
There’s also a classic hotel drinking den feel in Silo Bar (which also offers an a la carte breakfast), complete with a collection of local beers and regional wine. It’s also the site that, together with the Croft Restaurant, feeds (quite literally) the 24/7 room service menu. All the classics are covered: think Wagyu beef burgers and pizzas, as well as a few choices from the Croft menu.
Travel for work
Rooms are equipped with a small circular table that can be used for in-room remote working and wi-fi is free in all rooms. If a little more space is required, Park Suites have full-size workstations.
Selecting a Jamison Club room is a great option for business travellers: each guest receives extras such as an hour of complimentary use of the boardroom which accommodates up to eight people – perfect for in-person meetings.
Spa, pool and gym
There’s also an indoor heated pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and fitness centre. The gym and pool are open from 6am to 10.30pm.
