Fortune of War Hotel

Location: 137 George Street, The Rocks, NSW 2000

Constructed: 1922-1922

The Fortune of War Hotel is a three-storey facebrick building with stucco detailing, built in 1922. The façade of this building shows the Californian Bungalow style as applied to a commercial hotel building, employing the robust brick architecture typical of the 1920/30s. The building makes a positive contribution to the general streetscape and it remains relatively intact in its presentation to the street, retaining original features such as wall tiles, face brick, rendered trim and other features. Internally, the main public areas also retain much of their original form and detail, including the wall tile, bar and other joinery.
