Aiden Darling Harbour to open mid-2021

The brand new hotel will be located just steps from ICC Sydney.

A new boutique hotel brand will make its debut in Australia this year, when Aiden Darling Harbour opens in mid-2021.

Part of the Best Western portfolio, Aiden strives to be a “luxurious yet affordable” accommodation option, offering compact rooms with high-end technology and contactless features throughout.

The new hotel will span eight storeys of a 1930s Art Deco building on Murray Street in Pyrmont, just steps from the ICC Sydney.

“Aiden Darling Harbour will be a neat little package of all the must-haves for a great Sydney stay, whether you’re in town for business, celebrating an anniversary, seeing a show at the many nearby entertainment venues, or simply enjoying a city getaway or staycation,” said creator and owner Nicolas Chen of property developer IHHL.

Aiden Darling Harbour will feature 88 compact rooms, a combined lobby, café and bar on street level facing Pyrmont Bridge.

While they will be small in size, each guestroom will be thoughtfully designed with double-glazed windows, blackout blinds and customisable lighting for a good night’s sleep, plus luxury extras such as Nespresso coffee pod machine, Dyson hairdryer and refillable Rituals bathroom amenities.

Some rooms even feature a private balcony.

Australian artist Jessica Le Clerc has been enlisted to hand-paint large floral murals in each guestroom, as well as on a secret internal wall spanning 25 metres, visible only from a handful of rooms.
