IHG has opened its latest Holiday Inn property in Australia, located in Sydney’s Bondi Junction.

Situated on Spring Street, Holiday Inn and Suites Sydney Bondi Junction is a rebranding of the former Quest Bondi Junction, and will undergo an extensive refurbishment of its guestrooms, lobby and public spaces to incorporate the brand’s next-generation design.

Once complete, the 82-room hotel will feature a bright lobby, an all-day dining restaurant and complimentary gym access available to all guests.

The hotel is close to shopping mall Westfield Bondi Junction, minutes from the Sydney CBD by public transport, and close to Bondi Beach.

The property marks IHG’s fourth hotel in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, joining the likes of the Crowne Plaza Sydney Coogee Beach, Intercontinental Sydney Double Bay and Holiday Inn Potts Point.

IHG Hotels and Resorts’ director of development for Australasia, Jael Fischer, said:

“A world famous destination like Bondi needs a world-famous hotel brand, and there is no better-known brand globally than the Holiday Inn family. We are thrilled to extend our reach across Sydney and complement our stable of hotels in the Eastern Suburbs, which already includes Double Bay, Coogee and Potts Point.

“We are proud to partner with La Vie Hotels & Resorts for the first time, and thank them for their commitment to the future of the tourism industry, particularly in New South Wales. We look forward to working closely with them as they refresh the hotel and showcase the best of the Holiday Inn brand.”

The hotel will join the 42 open or pipeline Holiday Inn brand hotels in Australasia and the Pacific.
