Having operated in Australia for over 30 Years, Hyatt Hotels has marked the return of the Hyatt Regency Brand with the 892-room Hyatt Regency Sydney. Following the existing Park Hyatt, the hotel becomes Hyatt’s second hotel in Sydney and is set to become a go-to gathering place – a dynamic spot where guests can relax, meet, engage, and recharge.
Having undergone a $250 million refurbishment, the Hyatt Regency Sydney replaces the Starwood-branded Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, and provides an opportunity for Hyatt to build on its Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) leadership in Asia Pacific.
Located in the Sydney Central Business District (CBD) adjacent to Darling Harbour, the property now has a 24-storey tower, a 272-seater all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop open-air bar (opening in late December) and a new Regency Club lounge.
Additionally, the hotel has more than 37,100 square feet (3,450 square meters) of state-of-the-art function spaces, including two ballrooms that seats more than 1,000 people at a go, 21 meeting rooms and the Convention Centre offers panoramic views of Darling Harbour.
Commenting on the launch, David Udell, group president – Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation said; “
“It’s a great feeling to welcome the return of the Hyatt Regency brand, which will be a key flagship Hyatt Regency hotel for Hyatt in both Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Guests can now enjoy many of the hotel’s facilities, including state-of-the-art meeting and event facilities and a new Regency Club lounge, all of which will provide the ultimate dwelling for both business and leisure travelers to relax and unwind.”
