Hyatt Hotels has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with a M&L Hospitality affiliate for a Hyatt Regency hotel in Sydney, Australia. The hotel, located at 161 Sussex Street and previously part of the Four Points by Sheraton brand, will be rebranded to Hyatt Regency Sydney at midnight on 30 November 2016, marking the Hyatt Regency brand’s return to Sydney.
Hyatt Regency Sydney will enter the Australian market during a time of growing demand for MICE and leisure travel. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the market saw 7.6 million visitor arrivals for the year ending February 2016, which was an increase of nine per cent compared to the previous year.
Following a significant $250 million redevelopment and refurbishment, Hyatt Regency Sydney will enjoy an unparalleled location in the Sydney Central Business District adjacent to Darling Harbour, providing the perfect setting for corporate, leisure and meeting and events programmes. This expansion will also include a new 24-storey tower and 222 additional guestrooms, making Hyatt Regency Sydney the largest upscale, full-service hotel in Australia with a total room count of 892.
Additionally, the hotel will introduce a 272-seat all-day dining restaurant, which will build on Hyatt’s history of culinary excellence, and will also feature the only hotel rooftop bar in Sydney and a Regency Club lounge with stunning panoramic views of the harbour.
The hotel will feature more than 3450 square metres of state-of-the-art meeting spaces for events, including two ballrooms that can seat more than 1000 people, which will be part of the new pillar-less convention centre with panoramic views of Darling Harbour. With a 3.6-tonne car lift and a 3.6-tonne goods lift, as well as a separate coach check-in facility for expedited registration for large groups, the hotel is positioned to become the preferred choice for conference organisers locally and globally.
