Wentworth Hotel, Chifley Square
Distinctive semi-circular brick Post War Minimalist Style hotel building that runs between Bligh and Phillip Streets on the block next door to Qantas House. Designed by American architects, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, it was built by Qantas as a replacement for the original Wentworth Hotel on Church Hill. It was originally known as Qantas Wentworth and opened on 14 December 1966. It was the largest of five international hotels built in Sydney in the 1960s and the largest brick structure in the southern hemisphere. In 2002 it was rebranded as the Sofitel Wentworth.
