The Rose, Shamrock and Thistle Hotel
Located at 27-33 Oxford St, Paddington, The Rose, Shamrock & Thistle Hotel was built in 1939 and is an architecturally significant Inter War Functionalist style hotel designed by the prominent specialist firm of Provost and Ancher. It replaced an earlier hotel of the same name that was located nearby.
A nice feature of this hotel are the curved windows on the first and second storey verandahs. They mirror the curve of the corner of the hotel and gives the verandahs a much more open feeling than if they were square to the facade.
