Inspired by a sophisticated colour palette of rich blues and natural timbers, the renovated guest rooms echo the detailed design of the 24-hour reception and offer guests state-of-the-art coffee pod machines, 55-inch televisions, and 24-hour in-room dining.

The opening follows the successful launch of Storehouse Rushcutters Bay at the Eastern Suburb’s Vibe Hotel.

For an exceptional meal with a local twist at any time of day, Storehouse is the CBD’s new go-to dining destination, framed by bold navy walls, brass detailing, and Apparition Media’s hand-painted Australian flora murals.

“Vibe Hotel Sydney is positioned in one of the liveliest locations in the city, offering access to an unparalleled suite of facilities in one spot,” said TFE Hotels’ Chairman Allan Vidor.

“Through creative interior design and inspired communal areas, the hotel’s refresh will make it a must-stay location in the heart of Sydney.”
