Similar to The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney shares a rich history as a former General Post Office (GPO) building. The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is a historic landmark that has been at the centre of Sydney’s development since 1866.

It was the gateway to the world for the harbour city and was regarded as a building which would come to symbolise Sydney in the same way the Houses of Parliament in Westminster represent London and the Eiffel Tower, Paris.

John Gordon, Founder of Expat Choice Asia spoke with Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts who shared, “We have earned our reputation as custodians of heritage through our transformation of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Similarly, in Sydney, we hope to advocate heritage preservation and shine the spotlight on the unique characteristics of the historic building, especially one as iconic as Sydney’s former GPO. It is our desire to retain the soul of the building and share it with locals and global travellers.”

The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts thrives on creating bespoke experiences with a nimble approach that goes beyond a cookie cutter hotel stay. “Genuine personalised service and hospitality from the heart is at the core of what we do. While we advocate the employment of new technologies, our view is that sincerity and compassion make us human, and that these are the elements that keep our guests returning,” added Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale.

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is positioned to be a vibrant destination which encourages guests to enjoy the exceptional qualities of the city. Prominently located in Martin Place, in Sydney’s CBD, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney will be minutes away from the city’s thriving cultural and arts precincts, retail centres, dining destinations and boutique bar scenes.

The city’s iconic landmarks such as The Sydney Opera House, The Art Gallery of New South Wales, Museum of Contemporary Art and the historic Rocks district can all be reached in under 15 minutes by foot. The Hotel is adjacent to Sydney’s luxury retailers, and just minutes away from major department stores.

In the mid-20th century, Sydneysiders dressed to the nines and came into town to meet under the GPO clock. The building was long known as an iconic rendezvous point.

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney aims to recreate this upon its opening, with plans currently underway to host several community events at the Hotel, starting with launch celebrations in October 2019.

Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts also shared with me, starting from opening weekend 18 October 2019, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney will offer complimentary heritage tours for hotel guests and the public. The Fullerton Hotel Sydney plan to share the building’s fascinating history, which spans the hallowed hallways of the heritage building to the ornamental carvings on the façade. The Fullerton Hotel Sydney want to tell the tales of early Sydney, where the building dominated the Sydney skyline, and bring the building’s soul and historical significance to life.
