With all the craziness around Fashion Weeks it is so important to have a home base to chill out (and order copious amounts of Uber Eats) at. Armed with our Lipault luggage, this year we were fortunate to be hosted at The Urban Newtown which was not only a five minute Uber from Carriageworks but was right on the doorstep of achingly cool Newtown.
The Hotel is styled around a industrial chic vibe that extends to the well thought out minimalism of the rooms, think that cool hotel you stayed in when you were in Berlin or Perth's Alex Hotel.
Nothing is overdone but the rooms have everything you could need during your stay and even when our request for a steamer (for clothes) was misunderstood and a floor steamer showed up in our room not one staff member batted an eyelid - that's service!
There are a few kinks that any new hotel experiences that are still being worked out however the overall experience more than makes up for them. Think complimentary breakfast pastries as you leave in the morning, wine and canapés to greet your afternoon arrival and a free minibar offer when you book directly with the hotel.
We found it very hard to leave our Sydney home away from home and can't wait to be back! To take advantage of the FREE minibar offer book directly through their website here!
