Sydney is a wonderfully diverse city, so to get the most out of your time, you’ll want accommodation somewhere convenient to transportation and close to all the most exciting and iconic sights. While there’s a lot to explore in the sprawling city, our four centrally-located Meriton Suites hotels close to Central Station offer the easiest access to Sydney’s best shopping, iconic landmarks, as well as the opportunity to explore the full spectrum of New South Wales’s beauty.
Whether it’s your first time visiting Sydney or you’re a seasoned visitor, the city’s landmarks are undeniably Australia’s most recognised and iconic in the world. So when you stay at our Meriton Suites locations near Central Station, you’re on the doorstep of some of the most spectacular sights on the planet.
From Central, jump on a train and head to Circular Quay where even the view from the station’s platform is breathtaking. At Circular Quay, you’ll find both the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge as well as fabulous restaurants and bars, souvenir shops, entertainment, and more selfie opportunities than you can shake a selfie stick at!
Once you’re at Circular Quay, you can embark on a journey to cross off another Sydney landmark from your bucket list – Bondi Beach. From here you have a few options for heading out to the world-famous beach. You can take a bus to Bondi or take a scenic ferry to Watsons Bay and catch the bus from there. Alternatively, for a quick but less scenic route, board a train from Central to Bondi Junction station and again, take the bus to the beach.
The convenient location of Meriton Suites’ hotels in the CBD offer more than just complete comfort throughout your stay, you’re also at the epicentre of some of Sydney’s chic shopping areas.
QVB (Queen Victoria Building) on George Street is an iconic landmark and shopping hub that attracts locals and travellers alike. If you’re looking for a stylish designer handbag, boutique bling to spice up an outfit, or just a casual old-fashioned window shopping expedition, the centre is just a hop, skip and jump away from our CBD hotels.
Pitt Street Mall is another bustling shopping area to pick up chic gifts, update your wardrobe, or to relax at a cafe and people watch. The gorgeous historic buildings lining the pedestrian street alone make it a fun outing while staying in the city.
If you prefer snagging bargains and haggling for a great price, you can’t beat Paddy’s Markets. Located close to Central Station, Sydney’s vibrant Chinatown, and our CBD hotels, you can pick up a fantastic deal on almost anything you could imagine.
Going further afield
There’s more to visiting Sydney than just the CBD, so you’ll want to stay close to a transport hub like Central Station to get the most out of your visit. Central Station opens up the rest of Sydney’s diverse and multicultural neighbourhoods in some of the outer suburbs, like Strathfield, Burwood, Cabramatta, or Auburn, but why stop there? From Central Station, you can explore more of New South Wales with some unforgettable day trips outside of the city. Jump on a long-distance train to Wollongong or Kiama in the south, take a coach to Port Stephens or head off on an adventure on Greyhound’s Blue Mountains one-day tour.
There’s so much to see and do in Sydney’s bustling CBD. Reserve your suite at any one of our four Meriton Suites hotels in the city and start exploring!
