Sydney's best airport hotels
This is an airport hotel that wholeheartedly embraces the fact that is an airport hotel. Paying homage to the golden-era of travel (think Don Draper sipping scotch on cream leather), Felix is stylish and cheeky. Here you check-in in the penthouse, grab a martini and watch planes landing on a runway-adjacent plush pastel lounge. The rooms are fabulous but comfy and there's a savvy 24 hour self serve food area with some of Sydney's finest snacks and tipples charged to your room like a posh vending machine.
This sophisticated hotel is nicely placed if you’re hopping on to a domestic or international flight from Sydney Airport. Free transfers mean you don’t have to faff around with a taxi, and the suites – some of which come with a balcony – aren’t too shabby either. There's also an in-house sports bar and you can skip the airport maccas for their well stocked breakfast buffet.
You couldn’t get much closer to the airport if you tried (and we have). A domestic flight is just a ten-minute walk away, with the hotel located just 600 metres from the airport. Each room offers a kitchenette so you can whip up your own dinner and save precious exploring money, and they also provide a washing machine for total DIY decadence.
This modern hotel is ideal for a super-chilled stay. It has lovely, slick, spacious suites, a lovely long swimming pool and Sydney International Airport and Sydney CBD are just a 15-minute trip by car. What’s not to like?
You might be able to see the airport from your balcony – but don’t worry: it definitely isn’t in earshot. What’s more, the motorised black-out blinds ensure a good night’s kip. There’s a spa, pool, children’s playground and on-site restaurant plus plenty of places nearby if you fancy dining out.
With its pastel colours and soft furnishings, this hotel oozes comfort and with Kingsford Smith Airport just a five-minute drive away, it’s pretty well-located too. Make the most of that sun-trap terrace before you go!
Just think, you can be doing laps of the pool, sweating it out in the sauna, or sipping a cocktail in La Boca Bar all within ten minutes of leaving Kingsford Smith, thanks to the nifty free shuttle service, which will pick you up from the hotel.
This hotel ticks all the boxes – great service, a top-notch, on-site restaurant and a private shuttle bus that will have you back at the airport within ten minutes. Not to mention those scenic views over Kogarah Golf Course and the Cooks River.
