Hyatt has announced that its Park Hyatt Sydney hotel will re-open in December following a complete refurbishment. The hotel, which has stood between Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge for 21 years, has been completely gutted and rebuilt from scratch. Its rooms have been reconfigured, bars have been added and new suites are on the roof all in its revamp.
“We wanted to maximise our location and the views of the Opera House,” Andrew Mensforth, general manager of Park Hyatt Sydney told Travel Daily. “We’ve also taken the time tore view our standards, plus doubled the amount of butlers to offer a more personalised service”.
While the hotel appeals to both the leisure and business markets, its senior clientele in the latter often proves itself to combine their stay with pleasure. As a result, its leisure activities have also been increased, including a new swimming pool double the size and on the rooftop and more balconies overlooking the city.
Mensforth added that sustainability hadbeen a key driver in the development, as all Hyatt properties, and so includesgreen initiatives both in room and staff practice. Pre and post cruise stays will be a group targeted in the opening alongside the weddings market. There will also be fam trips for travel agents. “Our hotel has become iconic and because of its location and refurbishment it will be great for years to come,”added Mensforth.
