The event, held as part of the city’s VIVID festival, was held 270m above ground on one of the highest floors of the building and was catered by popular Japanese restaurant Nobu.
The room featured a massive bar inside, lined with several bottles of wine, glasses and decorative flowers.
‘The most amazing hotel room. This is just the bar,’ Jesinta, 30, wrote alongside her Story.
The model also shared a loved-up snap next to husband Buddy, 35, with his arm wrapped around her waist.
Jesinta later posted videos of the breathtaking views overlooking the harbour as the city lit up in a light blue hue for the annual light festival.
‘@vividsydney from 270m in the sky,’ she added, tagging Crown Sydney’s Instagram account.
The pair’s outing comes after Jesinta revealed their shock plans to depart Sydney once Buddy’s $10million Sydney Swans contract comes to an end.
Speaking to Body+Soul in May, Jesinta said she and the sports star had been discussing leaving the New South Wales capital behind and moving interstate.
‘I think there’s still a lot of good football left in him, but it’s our dream, whether that’s in five years or 10 years or whenever, to be able to live closer to one of the grandparents and have quality time with them,’ Jesinta revealed.

Jesinta, who shares two children Tullulah, two, and son Rocky, one, with Buddy, did not reveal where the family were looking to move to.
However, Buddy was born across the country in Perth before his family moved to the small town of Dowerin, 150km northeast of the city when he was a kid.
Meanwhile, Jesinta’s parents reside on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

Buddy’s nine-year AFL Sydney Swans contract is set to expire at the end of the 2022 season.
However, according to Sydney president Andrew Pridham, the club and Buddy are keen to extend or even work out a new contract for the future.
“He’s looking fantastically fit, so I think we’re pretty keen to extend him if that’s what he wants to do, and I think it is,” Pridham told Seven.
In May 2021, Buddy said his team will ‘come to a decision when the time’s right.’
‘It’d be nice. If my body’s holding up and I’m feeling good, then we’ll have that chat,’ he said.
‘I just need my body to hold up. There’s a lot of great young talent at this football club and it’d be great to go all the way with them.’
Extension: Buddy said he’s keen to work out an extension for him to continue representing the Sydney Swans
