Located at 1 Martin Place, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is housed within the historic General Post Office (GPO) building in the heart of the city and represents an exceptional time in both Sydney’s and Australia’s history. Built on a grand scale under the guidance of colonial architect James Barnet, the GPO building has been regarded as one of the most well-known landmarks in the heart of the city since the 19th century. Inspired by the style of the Victorian Italian Renaissance, the heritage-listed site was constructed predominantly from local Sydney sandstone and is adorned with intricate sculptures and a marble statue of Queen Victoria.

The Hotel cares deeply about its heritage and its responsibility as custodians of the GPO building, blending the property’s old-world charm with the modern sophistication of a five[1]star hotel. A restoration project in 2019 involved more than 30 stonemasons who spent nine months and more than 38,400 hours cleaning the intricate stonework of the facade. The hotel boasts 416 exquisite guest rooms, spread across the traditional Heritage wing and the contemporary elegance of the high-rise tower. The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is situated in a premium location in the heart of the Emerald City, just a short walk to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, the Botanical Gardens and China Town.

The 2023 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveller’s UK website at and celebrated in the November issue.
