Holiday Inn Express has opened its first airport hotel in Australia with the launch of a new-build property at Sydney Airport.
Set to welcome trans-Tasman and domestic arrivals as travel restrictions ease, the hotel comprises 247 rooms across eight storeys, located steps from the airport terminals.
Travellers can expect smart, simple accommodation, according to hotel manager Stephanie Roach.
“Our rooms provide guests with everything they need to make them feel at home, even when they’re away,” she said.
“With Grab & Go breakfast options and snacks, beverages and barista made coffee available 24/7, travellers with early departures and late arrivals will appreciate the convenience our hotel offers.”
Guests entering the hotel will instantly clock the hotel’s aviation theme, with features including two large vintage propellers in the lobby, airport terminal wayfinding signage in the lifts and meeting room walls that are reminiscent of runways.
For corporate travellers and groups, Holiday Inn Express Sydney Airport offers two meeting rooms for up to 20 people combined, flexible workspaces, on-site car parking, plus restaurant and bar The Great Room.
Ronald Barrott, CEO of Pro-invest Group, said guests can rest assured the hotel provides safe, clean accommodation, thanks to strict hygiene protocol.
“We have been redesigning the guest experience in response to the current climate and consumer expectations of health and safety,” he said.
“Science-led protocols as well as elevated cleaning and service measures have been introduced at our Sydney Airport hotel, as they have at all Pro-invest Group properties.
“This includes deep cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants, possible face mask requirements, various ways to reduce contact throughout the hotel such as cashless payments, and social distancing measures within public spaces.”
