Accommodation Options for the Australian Chess Championship in Sydney

During the January holiday period, there are a multitude of accommodation options available to participants in the Australian Chess Championship. Close to the St. George Leagues Club are hotels from established chains such as: the Novotel at Brighton Beach and the Mercure, Holiday Inn and the Ibis Budget at the airport. In addition, there are a number of apartments, B&B and inner city hostels all seeking the custom of the weary traveller such as yourself. On the other hand you might opt to eschew the joys of the suburbs and dwell in the city centre, reaching the venue through the delights of the public train system. A browse through travel websites like Trip Advisor and will confront the reader with plenty of choices. Two words of caution to guide your selection.

Firstly, Sydney is packed with tourists for the New Year fireworks so accommodation can be very difficult to find if you leave it to the last minute. We would recommend you book early. 

Secondly, if you are coming by car, you will have little problem with parking at venue as the St. George Leagues’ Club has ample space. If you are coming by public transport, then it is best to choose lodgings close to a railway station, in particular the Illawarra train line. All hotels in Sydney Central Business District have this connection through stations like Central, Town Hall and Martin Place.
