Hilton Expands Presence in Australia with Signing of Hilton Parramatta
Slated to open in 2020, new property to make debut in Sydney’s West
SYDNEY and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton today announced the signing of Hilton Parramatta, which will add to Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ portfolio of 101 world class properties in the Asia Pacific region. Under a management agreement with Ledrae Hotels Pty Ltd, Hilton will manage the new-build hotel, located in the heart of one of Sydney’s fastest growing suburbs. Construction of the 245-room hotel will commence Q4 2018 and is due for completion by late 2020.
“The signing of Hilton Parramatta is the latest example of Hilton’s commitment to growing our portfolio within fast-emerging business and leisure markets,” said Sean Wooden, vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “The introduction of this new property has created an exceptional opportunity for us to bring our renowned brand of hospitality to the greater Sydney area and further expand our portfolio in the destinations that matter most to guests.”
Located 25 km west of Sydney’s central business district, Parramatta is a major business and commercial destination and is home to many federal and state government department centres. Hilton Parramatta will offer convenience to both corporate and government travellers, as well as leisure guests looking to explore the city’s rich cultural offerings. The hotel is located in the heart of Parramatta, walking distance to Parramatta stadium, and steps away from the city’s best shopping and dining venues.
“We are privileged to be partnering with Ledrae Hotels Pty Ltd to launch Hilton Parramatta and further strengthen our current portfolio of acclaimed hotels and resorts,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, development, Asia & Australasia, Hilton. “Today’s announcement bears testament to Hilton’s strength in Australasia and, more broadly, throughout the Asia Pacific region and we look forward to welcoming guests to the hotel with Hilton’s signature hospitality.”
Hilton Parramatta will offer 240 guest rooms and five suites as well as three state-of-the-art meeting spaces and an executive lounge. Additional offerings will include a signature restaurant, bar, fitness centre and outdoor pool.
“We are thrilled to be bringing such a well-known hotel brand such as Hilton to Parramatta,” said Dr. Lionel Chang, Director of Ledrae Hotels Pty Ltd. “We have owned the building on the corner of Macquarie Street and Marsden Street since 1994 and look forward to this exciting transformation. With Macquarie Street being the oldest and most well-known street in Parramatta, we cannot think of a better address for what will be a fantastic hotel.”
