Sydney's best hotels to watch the New Year's Eve fireworks

If you're planning to see out 2022 in style, you won't find anything better than front-row seats to Sydney's incredible New Year's Eve fireworks.

You don't have to pay a fortune to enjoy the view either.

There are a range of fabulous hotels offering views of Sydney Harbour and the fireworks at very reasonable prices.

InterContinental Sydney

Situated in the middle of the CBD, the InterContinental delivers the best of what Sydney has to offer with its unbeatable Macquarie Street location, insanely beautiful 170-year-old restaurant spaces and, of course, views.

Book a harbour view room to celebrate from the comfort of your bed, or raise a glass at the rooftop bar, Aster, 32 levels up from the ground overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay

Situated between the Harbour Bridge and Opera House is the humble Marriott Hotel, offering sky-high views of the harbour from its 32 floors.

Often overlooked for having some of the city's best views, the Marriott is quickly becoming a popular destination for Sydney-siders and travellers nabbing a room for NYE at a quarter of the price of its neighbours.

Admire the celebrations from your room or soak up the atmosphere from Silvester's Restaurant, now taking bookings for New Year's Eve and showcasing its signature tasting menu.

Holiday Inn Potts Point

You don't have to be smack bang on Sydney Harbour to take in the fireworks, as this hotel proves.

The iconic cylindrical building of the Holiday Inn at Potts Point offers central views of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and the rest of the city's shimmering lights from its buzzing Victoria Street location.

Nestled in Potts Point, the hotel is steps away from exciting eateries and pubs, while providing quiet refuge from the day in the Sirocco Restaurant & Bar. Also, kids stay and eat free.
