Doors are now open for Holiday Inn Express’ Sydney Airport property, just in time for trans-Tasman ‘bubble’ arrivals and domestic travellers to ramp up again.
The 247-room, eight-storey hotel is on the doorstep of Sydney’s domestic airport terminal, only minutes away from the international terminal, providing hassle-free stays to business and leisure travellers with early departures or late arrivals.
Located in Mascot, the hotel is two train stops away from Sydney’s CBD providing easy access to many of Sydney’s sporting grounds like the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Randwick Racecourse.
The hotel is aeronautically themed with two large vintage propellers in the lobby, the backdrop of guest lifts is inspired by wayfinding signage in an airport terminal, the gym and meeting room walls are reminiscent of runways, and the hotel has its own ‘business lounge’.
The airport motifs continue throughout the hotel’s room designs, with bathroom shower screens printed with airport arrival and departure signage.
Each room features power showerheads to freshen up, a choice of pillows, black-out blinds and high-quality bedding for the perfect night’s sleep, and free uncapped WiFi.
Hotel facilities also include two meeting rooms, flexible workspaces, free business centre, self-service laundry and onsite car parking.
Ronald Barrott, CEO of Pro-invest Group, said the company’s first airport hotel was well-positioned for the return of international and domestic travel.
“With the trans-Tasman travel bubble established between Sydney and New Zealand, and international arrivals increasing, we expect demand for this type of accommodation to grow,” he said.
“Travellers need not be concerned about hygiene during their stay with us. We have been redesigning the guest experience in response to the current climate and consumer expectations of health and safety.
“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.”
As part of IHG, the property will also be a part of the hotel group’s Way of Clean program, refined in partnership with industry-leading experts Cleveland Clinic, Ecolab and Diversey – including the IHG Clean Promise to give guests greater confidence and hotel teams the protection needed.
Holiday Inn Express Sydney Airport is the seventh Holiday Inn Express hotel opened by Pro-invest Group since 2016.
