Thinking of a city stay? Here are some of the best family-friendly hotels in the Harbour City, Sydney
1. Four Seasons Sydney
This luxury hotel is the only one in Sydney to offer a deluxe tent for little ones to sleep in inside. The specially designed tent is suitable for children up to 12-years-old and is set up to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep with a full-size single bed, themed linen and your child’s selection from the pillow menu. It’s included with all suite bookings of the Family Fun Package, which also includes an in-room kids’ movie with snacks, bath and welcome amenities, and breakfast for the whole family at the award-winning Mode Kitchen. Meanwhile, parents can have some in-room fun of their own with the hotel’s cocktail trolley, which offers bedside cocktails, by Grain’s bartenders, in the comfort of your room, or a deluxe bathing experience followed by dinner (in your bathrobe, if you wish) with unrivalled harbour views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
