Double Bay is named for the sandy shoreline interrupted by a miniature point. It refers to the two geographical formations between Point Piper and Darling Point, which are interrupted by a miniature point in between. The eastern part is also known as Blackburn Cove. The locality was originally called Keltie Cove after the master of HMS Sirius. The present name came into use around 1821 when Governor. Lachlan Macquarie earmarked the bay as a site for a future Botanical Gardens. The gardens were planned and marked out before Macquarie left Sydney, but his successor, Major-General Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane, never finished the project. In the early years of the colony, Double Bay was used as shelter for fishermen who would regularly fish around the harbour.

The interior design for the classic rooms references the design of the public areas to ensure continuity of design and detail. Lighter more contemporary furniture is set against framed elements making reference to the symmetry of the architecture. The design evokes a casual elegance and sophistication that is reflected across all interior spaces within the hotel. Architects: Bates Smart, Surry Hills.
