SYDNEY - This year, Vivid Sydney fans have the exclusive opportunity to immerse themselves in a festival of light and sound even after the city lights are turned off. Hilton Sydney will introduce the city's first ever Vivid-inspired suite, offering guests a vibrant hotel experience including indulgent food and cocktails that will delight the senses. Vivid Sydney is a 23-day festival of light, music and ideas.

In partnership with Philips Hue 2.0, a personal wireless lighting system designed to take lighting beyond illumination, Hilton Sydney is bringing the festival to life inside the hotel walls. The Relaxation Suite will be transformed into a Vivid hotspot featuring Hue bulbs, Hue Go and light strips. Hue 2.0 will allow guests to create in-room light shows with a synchronized music play list.  The lighting is so sophisticated guests can change the mood from flamboyant and bright, to relaxing and soothing, with one touch of the in-room iPad.

"Vivid has inspired us to bring the festival of light into the hotel. Located at the heart of the festival's key attractions, from the moment guests step into the lobby of Hilton Sydney they will be in the perfect place to experience the festival like never before," says Ronald van Weezel, general manager, Hilton Sydney. "And for the first time our Vivid suite will give guests the chance to have an in-room experience enjoying colourful Marble Bar cocktails and Caffe Cino high tea cuisine, before exploring the illuminated city beyond."

"With Vivid once again 'lighting over' the city, we want to offer Hilton Sydney guests a new way to experience the festival. While many people will flock to the city, with Hue 2.0 guests can dramatically transform their suite to create their own Vivid lighting experience, and soak up all the festival has to offer from the comfort of their room," says Sam Dearden, consumer marketing manager, Philips Lighting, Australia.

Hilton Sydney's Vivid package includes:

Priced from $759, the package can be booked for stays throughout Vivid festival (26 May - 17 June) at www.hiltonsydney.com.au. Subject to availability.
