‘The completion of the geometric-inspired building exterior marks a significant event in the property’s construction and we’re thrilled to see this landmark building taking shape,’ says McDonald.
‘Once open, the hotel will address Sydney’s real need for greater, and more contemporary, on-airport hotel accommodation.’
Mantra Group Chief Executive Officer Bob East says the hotel aims to meet the demand for business travellers looking for conveniently-located accommodation close to the airport and its terminals.
‘It will be a contemporary iteration of an airport hotel and will mirror how people typically interact at an airport, featuring a 24/7 atmosphere and service, informal meeting spaces and a relaxed dining and service culture,’ says East.
‘We expect our loyal Mantra guests will readily embrace this new hotel and the hotel’s dynamic food and beverage offering will distinguish it as a standout in the area.
The hotel also has several sustainability measures under consideration including solar panels, rainwater storage tanks, electric car charging station and bicycle facilities for staff and guests.
This new hotel adds to Mantra Group’s portfolio of properties, with eight in Sydney alone and 128 around the world.
