It became Larmont Sydney by Lancemore, having previously operated as the 76 room Diamant Hotel. Levels seven to 10 are commercial strata offices.

Set behind the King Cross icon the Coca-Cola sign, Larmont has a number of rooms with extensive terraces that look across the city skyline and the harbour.
