Clarion, a division of the Choice Hotels Group, has launched its third Sydney property, and its 16th in Australia, the Clarion Hotel on the Park in Parramatta.
Clarion Hotel on the Park, Parramatta
Formerly the Courtyard by Marriott Parramatta, the rebranded property will be totally refurbished over the next 12 months, with work due to commence in the first quarter of 2011.
Located at 18-40 Anderson Street, Parramatta, the six-storey Clarion Hotel on the Park has 181 rooms – 150 standard rooms and 30 suites. It also has 11 meeting rooms, covering a total of 371 square metres.
Louise Byrom, newly appointed as General Manager of the Clarion Hotel on the Park Parramatta, said the property would focus on business clientele during the week and leisure visitors from regional NSW or the local community during weekends and holiday periods.
Byrom was previously General Manager at the property when it was part of the Courtyard by Marriott network before transferring to her most recent position as General Manager of the Courtyard by Marriott North Ryde.
“Parramatta is a major commercial hub in western Sydney, and we will redevelop this property to offer a fresh option for business travellers to this region,” Byrom said. “We also will offer a high quality option for leisure visitors and groups from regional NSW and local communities, particularly those seeking ease of access to the entertainment, sports and exhibition centres of Homebush Bay and the Sydney Olympic sites.”
