Set in a historic building, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney marks the arrival of an icon in the city. By Bayar Jain

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney
The original building of the hotel was built in 1866 as the Sydney General Post Office (GPO).

After marking its beginning with two flagship hotels—The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore in 2001 and 2010, respectively–The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts is all set to introduce The Fullerton Hotel Sydney on October 18 in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD), making it their first international brand expansion outside Singapore. Like its counterparts in the Lion City, this hotel is a monument—the building was formerly known as the Sydney General Post Office (GPO), a landmark that dominated the Sydney skyline for decades following its construction in 1866. Prominently located in Martin Place, minutes away from the city’s thriving cultural precincts, retail centres, and dining destinations, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney weaves the past and present together.
