Resplendently restored to its former 1930’s Art Deco glory, Primus Hotel is a heritage-listed, award-winning stay neatly placed on central Sydney’s lively Pitt street. Right down to semantics, with “primus” meaning “first” in Latin, Primus Hotel delivers the most prestigious example of luxury hotels in Sydney.
At a glance, thoughtful acknowledgement of a nation’s past is preserved through its exuberant inter-war-time classical pastiche and masterclass display of craftsmanship. Upon entry into the lobby, architectural charm is measured by an amalgamation of historical infrastructure with modern furnishings and rich colour schematics, while the grandeur is expressed through the commanding size of the rooms and imperious offerings.
Five Star Service
In modern times, genuine five-star service at hotels can be very few and far between. At Primus Hotel, it is in full blossom and complimented with great attention to detail and impeccably dressed staff who are fastidious when it comes to customer care.
Check-ins are prompt and swift, right before guests are ushered along the treasured passageway of plush, custom-made carpet. Having been treated to the most meticulous service and wonderful array of artistry, a large room displaying bespoke furnishings, richly designed spaces and Appelles amenities will ensure a stay of relaxation.
Of the 172 generously sized rooms, the aesthetics and sophisticated furnishings puts the presidential suite in a class of its own. Dressed with travertine-floors, marble bathrooms and refined old world ceilings, this suite is regal in character and satisfies stays of government officials, high profile media personalities and celebrities.
Inviting distinguished guests over is encouraged with no shortage of space and a 10-seater dining table facing the city to top off a brilliant mix of flavour and atmosphere. Moving into the living room with the velvet sofas, opulent upholstered armchairs and a mini-bar make for a perfect post-dinner wind down (particularly with 24-hour access to coffee and tea). The sense of grandeur only enlarges as you enter the executive double room with the added inclusion of a roller bed, should there be a third guest.

Ensuring your stay at Primus Hotel is both comprehensive and seamless, The Wilmot dishes out a seasonal menu of the highest quality local produce inspired by the internationally acclaimed executive chef Daniel Menzies.
