Sydney Airport has announced a new 136-room hotel, due to begin construction in April this year.
Mantra Group, managers of more than 18,000 rooms throughout Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia, has been appointed to manage the new limited-service hotel.
The new-build will be located adjacent to the current Ibis hotel between Terminals 2 and 3.
Sydney Airport managing director and CEO Kerrie Mather said: “With 39 million passengers a year and growing, our Hotel Development Strategy seeks to address strong demand for quality accommodation options at Sydney Airport.
“We are excited to be partnering with Mantra Group who are well known for their modern, lifestyle product and we look forward to working with them.”
The hotel promises a bar, modern design features and high quality room furnishings. Sydney Airport currently boasts two hotels, a 318-room Rydges property at Terminal 1 and the 199-room Ibis.
Bob East, Mantra Group CEO, said: “We expect our loyal Mantra guests will readily embrace this new Sydney Airport hotel and we have plans to create a dynamic food and beverage offering that will distinguish it as a standout in the area.”
Mantra currently manages four properties across Sydney, including Mantra Bond Street, in the heart of the tourist zone, and Mantra on Kent located just outside Sydney’s central business district.
