Tucked just around the corner from Circular Quay, almost under the harbour bridge, Pier One is right on the waterfront (you can even arrive by boat at the private pontoon, if you wish). Some rooms have harbor views, in both directions. Rooms are contemporary and newly refurbished, but have some interesting features including some of the old timbers from the original Pier One Wharf built in 1912. It’s just far enough from the bustle of the city center to be in a world of its own but with all the benefits of being just 5 minutes away.
