Fullerton Hotels and Resorts has announced it will take over management of The Westin Sydney next year, marking the brand’s first foray outside of Singapore.
As of 18 October 2019, the hotel, located at 1 Martin Place, will rebrand to The Fullerton Hotel Sydney.
The hotel will join The Fullerton’s two existing properties, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore, both located in Marina Bay.
Giovanni Viterale, general manager of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, says the brand is delighted to launch into Australia.
“The Fullerton Hotel Sydney will become a sister hotel to The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, both of which share a similar rich history as former GPOs,” hey says.
“We strive to deliver a luxury hotel that can further contribute to Sydney’s growth as an international tourist destination and showcase the beauty and heritage of the original building to a wider audience, both nationally and globally.”
While hotel operations will remain very much “business as usual”, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney’s website will go live today, 18 October 2018.
The hotel’s façade will be cleaned and repaired in early 2019, bringing it in line with the state’s Heritage Management Plan and safety regulations.
Marriott International, which manages the current Westin property, thanked the hotel’s team for two decades of support.
“Marriott International has managed The Westin Sydney at 1 Martin Place for over 20 years and we would like to thank all of our colleagues at the hotel for their continued support, hard work and dedication to its success,” says Sean Hunt, area vice president, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
