Also known as the Westminster Hotel, Guys and Dolls Hotel and Bar Broadway.
Sutherlands Hotel, situated at 2-6 Broadway Chippendale, has one of the few corner hotel ceramic tiled interiors to be retained largely intact. The public bar is significant as a rare and fine example of an original ceramic tiled interior. It is also significant by its association with the well known architectural firm of Rudder and Grout and the brewers Tooth and Company.
The Sutherlands Hotel is a fine example of an interwar Functionalist style building and is one of five hotels built in this style in the Sydney CBD. The others are the Clare Inn<, the Australian Hotel, the Hotel Hollywood and the Civic Hotel.
