The Collectionist Hotel Sydney
Opened: May 2018
Described as Sydney’s first “choose your own adventure” hotel, The Collectionist Hotel Sydney has flipped the traditional room selection model on its head.

That being said, if you’re a regular guest and have a particular favourite room you are able to reserve this in advance (frequent guests also get free upgrades and late checkout). Other highlights include digital check-in services and daily social drinks.
