Woolloomooloo’s iconic 100 year old wharf has been given a new lease on life with the recent arrival of the Ovolo Woolloomooloo hotel, “Ovolo-ising” the building at 6 Cowper Wharf Road with energy and glamour, very much in keeping with what visitors and locals have come to expect from the quintessential Sydney precinct.
Opened in December, the building’s original façade has remained, but, with the Ovolo team collaborating with international design practice Hassell, the 100-room hotel has also be filled with art and design elements, including an 86kg clock by Swedish design studio, Humans Since 1982, in the hotel lobby.
In an Australian first, Ovolo also joined forces with government initiative, Artbank, to exhibit unique Australian artworks throughout the venue, celebrating both international and local artists.
Ovolo prides itself on their unique approach to hospitality service and comforts, including free Wi-Fi throughout (for an unrestricted number of devices), easy access power outlets by the bedsides and hassle-free check ins and check outs.
Ovolo is also home to Lo Lounge, led by Group Executive Chef Gavin Berrecloth. Offering 24 hour service to hotel guests, and also open to the general public, Lo Lounge will fit right in with the ambiance of Woolloomooloo Wharf. Hotel guests will enjoy happy hour from 5pm to 7pm, free continental breakfasts, snacks and high-speed Wi-Fi. It’s the perfect venue for a catch-up with out-of-town guests.
