As part of the management agreement, the hotel will undergo a A$250 million (US$184 million) re-development and refurbishment, which will see it add a new 24-storey tower and 222 additional guestrooms – making Hyatt Regency Sydney the largest full service hotel in Australia with 892 rooms.
Additionally, the hotel will debut a 272-seater all-day dining restaurant, as well as the only hotel rooftop bar in Sydney. For business travellers, a Regency Club lounge will be available when the property opens.
