The five-star Radisson Plaza Hotel Sydney has unveiled a transformation of its lobby and has opened the new Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar following completion of a $2.9 million redesign program coinciding with the hotel’s 10th birthday year.
The project commenced in March and involved a complete redesign of the lobby including reception, concierge, the lounge and the hotel’s signature restaurant and bar. The hotel entrance at 27 O’Connell street has also been extended and enhanced.

The venue is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and is supported by a new website www.bistrofax.com .

The redesign work has been extensive and as the hotel remained open during the process the hotel carefully went about theming the project to create a point of interest for hotel guests.
“The last five months have been an exciting time at the hotel. To undergo such an extensive redesign program across not only the main public area of the hotel but also to the signature restaurant and bar while remaining open was nothing short of ambitious,” said Peter Tudehope, general manager.
The redesigned lobby and new Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar complement the hotel’s 362 stylish guest rooms, the fine dining 3-hat Bilson’s restaurant, a health club including indoor pool, spa, steam room and gym and eight meeting rooms including two heritage rooms.

Complimentary internet access is also provided to all hotel guests. “All the pieces have now come together with the unveiling of our new lobby and Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar. With our fine restaurants, facilities and perfect central cbd location Radisson Plaza Hotel Sydney is one of the most sought after five-star hotels in the city” said Tudehope.
