The Westin Sydney is a new hotel, opened 1999. It incorporates the historic General Post Office building opened in 1887 with its colonnaded walkway stretching from George to Pitt Street and facing Martin Place. The GPO was Sydney's main post office for more than 100 years, and is the point from which all road distances are measured.
Westin Sydney has 49 rooms in the Heritage-listed building and 366 in the brand new 31-storey tower behind. The Heritage Rooms in the old GPO building range from 39 to 65 square metres and have ceiling from 3.5 to 4.8 metres high.
Built within the imposing sandstone shell of the GPO, they overlook Martin Place which has long been the focal point of the city. It is a pedestrian mall with no traffic. A small war memorial, The Cenotaph, sits in the middle of Martin Place directly in front of The Westin Sydney.
The Westin Sydney caters for business and leisure travellers alike. It is the only hotel in Sydney to provide a 24-hour business centre coupled with the latest in in-room communications technology. Its meeting facililies include teleconferencing and television outside broadcast.
