Stretching across two iconic heritage-listed buildings – The Clare Hotel pub and the Carlton & United Breweries Administration Building – the 62 room boutique hotel has been constructed with obsessive attention to aesthetics and concern for retaining the interesting features of both buildings. The corner building has been used as a hotel ever since it’s earliest development. By 1848, a two-story, eight room public house was established here; the first mention of this hotel is under the moniker The California Inn. By 1885 the original hotel structure had been demolished and property expanded with a new Victorian building known as Ryan’s Hotel

In 1939, the shop building was demolished during the widening of Parramatta Road to create Broadway Street. Architect Sidney Warden was a hot property after designing the nearby Broadway Hotel to much acclaim, so when Margaret Moloney bought the site she hired him to design a new hotel in the “Inter-war Functionalist style”. The pub was similarly praised upon its opening, and Margaret named her new establishment after her birthplace in County Clare, Ireland. The Clare Hotel was born. Situated along the re-developed Kensington Street precinct, the hotel is the first Australian hotel from the unconventional Unlisted Collection. Featuring 3 restaurants, a fitness center, and a bar/lounge, and exceptional hospitality and personalized service in an unpretentious setting.

All 62 individually decorated rooms feature free WiFi and 24-hour room service. For a bit of entertainment, flat-screen TVs come with cable channels, and guests will also appreciate thoughtful touches like espresso makers and bathrobes.
