The Chifley Hotel Potts Point is now open after a $20m refurbishment. 

Marchese + Partners Interiors upgrade of the landmark Chifley hotel in Sydney is now complete. All 215 hotel rooms have been upgraded to 4.5 star, the entry lobby has been relocated and a new reception / bar / restaurant / and function area has been created that is in keeping with the vibrant surroundings of Kings Cross. The design creates a ‘journey’ for arriving guests through 2 contrasting environments from lobby up to reception. The lower level is a seductive and moody transition space, cool and restrained in its palette, it is punctuated with flashes of vibrant colour and textural variety. The open plan upper level retains some of the same elements as the lower – it is flooded with light and its plan promotes movement and transparency, as the various functional areas blend into one another. The design maximizes the vibrant outlook onto Darlinghurst Road with the subtle selection of materials and detailing adding a tranquil and welcoming feel.
