The heritage façade of one of Sydney’s most recognisable buildings, Porter House, has become the gateway to the city’s sleekest new boutique hotel when The Porter House Hotel. Located on Castlereagh Street, the luxury hotel occupies the first 10 floors of a 36-storey mixed-use tower within the re-imagined Porter House precinct.

The new signature MGallery hotel, and its multi-level food and bar destination has been created within the restored 1870s heritage-listed building itself.

Guests’ rooms & hotel facilities

The Porter House Hotel – MGallery offers a choice of 122 guest rooms and suites. Designed for up to two guests, each Classic and Superior room (28sqm) comes with a king bed and a large 65cm television. Junior Suites (48 sqm) – of which there are four – offer additional room to accommodate up to three guests, with a separate king bedroom and living space, in addition to a generously sized wardrobe and bathroom.

All suites face Castlereagh Street, some with green glimpses across to Sydney’s leafy Hyde Park which is an easy walk from the hotel. Suites also offer additional luxuries such as complimentary Appelles amenities, a clothes steamer and hair straightener.

A free-standing bath with a mirror screen television positioned above is another highlight. For larger groups staying together the hotel offers six interconnecting rooms, six disability rooms and one petfriendly room.

All hotel guests have access to a well-appointed fitness centre and 12.5sqm heated pool located on level 11 of the hotel, perfect for leisurely laps or a mindful break surrounded by a rooftop garden and blue skies. The Porter House Hotel – MGallery is also the only hotel in Australia to offer Digit Valet – a walking, talking iPad concierge to effectively help walk you through the hotel and Porter House venues.

Food & Drinks

Porter House is developed as standalone hospitality precinct: Three different food and beverage venues now sit across four redeveloped levels within the original building.

Lose yourself in the beautiful buzz of Henry’s Bread and Wine, welcoming guests on the ground level, seven days a week. Fresh bunches of blooms crafted by an in-house florist fill one of the walls of Henry’s, competing with the fresh aroma of coffee served early each day. Henry’s all-day menu balances takeaway breakfast and lunch items. In the afternoon, guests can perch at the central bar to enjoy a glass of Champagne or select from the fourmetre (predominantly Australian) wine wall on display.

Dixson & Sons, named after The Porter House’s founding merchant family, occupies the first floor of the building. With a footprint of almost 200sqm and seating for 90, this generously proportioned restaurant includes two semi-private dining spaces, banquettes and intimate tables for two as well as a six-metre bar positioned in the middle of the venue. The Porter House’s Executive Chef Emrys Jones has created a menu that champions New South Wales produce.

Head to the top level of The Porter House to discover Spice Trader cocktail bar and be transported to all corners of the world, one sip at a time. This venue features an abundance of natural light thanks to glass panels lining more than half the roof. The sage marble bar may try and take centre stage but it is the collection of cocktails that will triumph.
