Felix Hotel by 8Hotels – a hotel that has set a new benchmark for Australian airport accommodation has officially opened its doors.

Turning the perception of the airport hotel on its head, Felix Hotel guests will check-in on the top floor penthouse, rather than a ground floor lobby.

Felix Hotel takes its design cues from the 1960’s, indicative of the thrill and glamour of the Golden Era of air travel. The penthouse features a super-stylish cocktail bar, 24-hour food shop, outdoor rooftop cinema and one of the best views of the Sydney Domestic Airports runways.

Built with the digital nomad in mind, the hotel has fast and easy to connect Wi-Fi, 1,000 USB ports and a Sky Lounge with communal and solo workspaces.

The 150-room hotel has been designed in collaboration with Cressida Kennedy from Space Control, to capture a modern urban aesthetic, with a generous nod to the 1960s Golden Era of flying – think Catch Me If You Can cool, with touch of Mad Men and Pan Am allure.

The high-flying theme runs throughout the hotel from conference rooms, Boeing and Airbus to suite categories, Economy, Premium Economy, Business Class and First Class. All rooms are fitted out with state of the art 55-inch TVs, power rain showers and blackout curtains. There are also pet friendly and family suites available.

Convenient and fast, the 24-hour Food Shop has a range of locally sourced gourmet grab-and-go food and drink options that guests can charge to their room with a swipe of the key. The cocktail bar serves up classic cocktails and premium local and international beer, wine and spirits. There is also a 24-hour gym, Felix Athletic Club, and self-service laundry.

“We are thrilled to bring Felix Hotel to Sydney and see this property elevating the airport hotel precinct. Answering to every need of our guests, from the digital nomad to the everyday leisure traveller, Felix Hotel is a cutting edge alternative to the average airport hotel.” Says Paul Fischmann, Founder and CEO of 8Hotels.

In a game changing partnership with private jet provider Fly Airly, Felix Hotel has developed high flying accommodation packages. The Jet Setter package has been designed for interstate or international companies that want to fly their teams by private jet for a conference at Felix Hotel. For leisure guests who want a taste of the high life, the Sky’s the Limit packages incorporates a two-hour scenic flight over Sydney on board a lavish private jet.

Felix Hotel was designed and developed and is operated by 8Hotels, the boutique hotel group that are always ahead of the game in terms of meeting modern consumer needs, having previously launched 1888 – the first Instagram Hotel and The Ultimo – the first Astrology Hotel.

The hotel is located just a 7-minute walk, or 2-minute drive, from the Sydney Domestic Airport and a short drive from the International terminal.
