The Hotel Broadway

Originally known as the Albion Hotel the Hotel Broadway, situated at 166-170 Broadway, was constructed in 1936.

It is a good and relatively intact example of an interwar Functionalist style hotel building, designed by architect Sidney Warden. Sidney Warden designed a very large majority of the Art Deco hotels located in Sydney. A pub crawl of Warden's hotels would be a very long and exhausting exercise!
