Meeting Room

Natural light floods this meeting space that can accommodate up to 16 people around its centrepiece, a large carved wooden table harkening back to the Carlton & United Breweries boardroom. The Meeting Room also has all the mod cons, with super-fast WiFi, telephone and audio-visual equipment, taking the stress out of even the grandest multimedia presentation. With 62-rooms, two restaurants and two bars in house, it’s also easy to reward the staff for sitting through your annual ‘year in review’ with something spectacular.



  • Seats sixteen people
  • Heritage C.U.B. boardroom table
  • Superfast Wi-Fi
  • Telephones and conferencing facilities
  • Audiovisual equipment
  • Catering by Kensington Street Social
  • Valet parking from $25 (half day rate)




Rooftop Pool

Have a swim or take in the vast views of the surrounding suburbs and plot your evening’s escapades. Unlike many rooftop bars, here you don’t have to wear all white or throw a drink in someone’s face (in fact we’d rather you didn’t).  

Enjoy the bird’s eye view of Chippendale that the Rooftop Pool and Bar affords, and soak up some sun, a stone’s throw away from Central Station. During your stay, why not invite some old or new friends over to meet you, it’s a great spot to mix with savvy locals.

Opening Hours:

The rooftop is open to our hotel guests throughout the week.
The bar is closed for the season.
