Located smack bang in the middle of arguably Sydney's liveliest suburb, Little Albion does things a little differently.

When you've drunk away all your hard work, treat yourself to complimentary bubbles and canapés on Little Albion's beloved rooftop. Live entertainment will be provided by Sydney local Zoe O'Sullivan to make sure the night gets started just right.

When it's finally time for bed, take an hour or two to peruse each of the 35 exquisitely designed rooms before selecting which one will be your home for the night.
