Following a rebranding 12 months ago, the Pullman Sydney Hyde Park has unveiled a striking, multi-million dollar refurbishment where everything from the lobby to the 241 guestrooms have been renovated.
From the moment guests enter the hotel via College Street, the new-look lobby will make an instant impression.
A Paul Smith-style designer rug with purple, orange, lime green and cream stripes takes up much of the entrance and sits under an enormous cylindrical chandelier, while a deep purple chaise lounge adds to the modern new look.
The Pullman Executive Lounge located on level 21 enjoys stunning views of the Sydney skyline, Hyde Park, Woolloomooloo and Sydney Harbour and features new carpet, comfortable seating arrangements and a light refreshment bar.
The Executive Lounge is tailored towards the business traveller and available to those who stay on Executive floors and guests who seek the complete Pullman experience.
As well as the addition of the Executive Lounge, Pullman Sydney Hyde Park has installed a world class Connectivity Lounge which is set to be one of the most technologically advanced lounges of the Pullman portfolio, setting a benchmark for Pullman’s connectivity concept. As part of the new lounge, guests of the hotel will enjoy complimentary WiFi as well as a range of business services.
Another addition to hotel’s public areas is Bar Rendezvous, the hotel’s new, sleek bar with dark timber floors and panelling which provides an inviting and intimate space for guests to enjoy pre-dinner drinks or a late night night-cap.
Moving onto the guestrooms, all of the 22 floors of accommodation have been completely stripped back and refurbished and all of the bathrooms – some of which are the most spacious in the city – have been retiled.
General manager for Pullman Sydney Hyde Park, Lorraine Mercuri, said the renovation had been a long time in the making and that the hotel would benefit considerably from the upgrade.
Aside from the hotel’s impressive enhancements, Pullman Sydney Hyde Park boasts a rooftop swimming pool with spectacular views over Hyde Park and Sydney Harbour, as well as a rooftop gymnasium.
The hotel’s spacious Window’s Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner and serves modern international cuisine while taking in the leafy views of Hyde Park.
Pullman Sydney Hyde Park is accredited to provide Accor’s Chinese Optimum Standards, whereby Chinese guests are welcomed with translated hotel kits, Chinese menu options, Chinese newspapers, adaptor plugs amongst other enhancements.
