Beautiful Lines at The Westin, Sydney.

We recently stayed at The Westin, Sydney for our [wedding] anniversary - a mark from the 5 years ago that we had stayed there on our wedding night... And still to this day the architecture and the sublime combination of old & new buildings is truly remarkable. For those who aren't sure where the Westin, Sydney it's main entrance is on Pitt Street, and is cushioned by the the GPO Martin Place. Each in their own right a footprint in Sydney's historical architectural building path, the GPO in Martni Place is most always recognised as a semi closed pedestrian walkway with the ANZAC cenotaph & the large working clock tower.
GPO, at No. 1 Martin Place, is a sleek, urban blend of food, wine and lifestyle on the lower ground floor of the heritage GPO building (previously the General Post Office) in Sydney's CBD. Restaurants, bars, cafes and Food Emporium create an uber-chic environment. The beautiful, Italian Renaissance building built in 1865 was fully refurbished in 1999 and is one of the country's landmark buildings. With its Italian Renaissance features, the lower ground floor of the GPO is not only a food and lifestyle experience, but also offers a rare glimpse at Sydney's architectural heritage, such as the original Tank Stream which is open to the public for viewing.I'm sure you'll agree it is just stunning...
