SYDNEY, Australia and MCLEAN, Va. - Today, Curio Collection by Hilton announced the signing of its first hotel in Sydney. Under a management agreement with M&L Hospitality, Hilton (NYSE: HLT) will manage the West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton located at 65 Sussex Street. The 182-room new build hotel is due for completion by December 2017.
One of Hilton's 14 market-leading brands, Curio Collection by Hilton is a global, upper upscale collection of distinctive hotels and resorts that offer guests one-of-a-kind experiences, each unique to the destination they call home. Designed by Australian Architecture firm, Fitzpatrick and Partners, with interiors by Woods Bagot, West Hotel will have its own distinct character appealing to the curious traveller seeking an authentic Sydney experience.
"As the first Curio Collection hotel in Australia, the signing of West Hotel Sydney is an exciting achievement for us," said, Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. "Sydney has an eclectic and diverse mix of people, cultures and experiences - all of which are reflected in this property."
The newly built West Hotel Sydney features 182 stylish guest rooms, including four spacious suites, a restaurant and bar, a fully equipped gym and a private meeting/dining room. The property will attribute modern classic design elements. Deep tones and marble accents with a strong botanical theme run throughout - from the open-air central garden atrium and the white waratah flower motif in the lobby to the floral-inspired carpet design in the guest rooms. The hotel will also work with a local Sydney florist to create striking, seasonal arrangements and installations.
"The new West Hotel Sydney is a one-of-a-kind addition to our Australia portfolio. We are extremely pleased to once again work with M&L Hospitality on this remarkable new hotel project," said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, development, Asia & Australasia, Hilton.
