Sydney's Flourishing Hotel Scene
December 8, 2014
Last week saw the re-opening of The Langham Hotel, a luxurious 5 star boutique hotel in The Rocks, following a $30 million refurbishment. The hotel now boasts spacious guestrooms, luxury amenities and fine dining including the famous Langham Afternoon Tea.
In Sydney's leafy suburb of Double Bay, the hotly anticipated InterContinental Sydney Double Bay opened its doors last month after a multi-million dollar refurbishment of the former Ritz Carlton property, transforming the hotel into an Eastern Suburbs destination, complete with rooftop pool and concept gin bar. November also saw the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney complete a $12 million refurbishment, refreshing and revitalizing the 5-star hotel.
Looking ahead to 2015 the designer hotel, QT Bondi Beach is set to open mid-year and will offer one-of-a-kind boutique apartments on iconic Bondi Beach. Hotel giant Accor has announced a $100 million development to open a 5-star hotel, Pullman Sydney Airport, in May 2016, and Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour in 2017 as part of the International Convention Centre Sydney development.
Hotels across the State are also experiencing developments, including the highly anticipated re-opening of The Hydro Majestic, in the Blue Mountains, which will welcome overnight guests on 23 December 2014, just in time for Christmas. A new IBIS Styles property at The Entrance is also due to open in mid-December. Overlooking Tuggerah Lakes, IBIS Styles will feature 52 rooms and be a short distance the region's many picturesque beaches. Earlier this year, Parklands Country Gardens and Lodges opened in Blackheath, with extensive refurbishments also taking place at both Anchorage Port Stephens and ATURA Albury.
