The (outer) inner west is getting its first international hotel, Winsor Dobbin reports.
Inner west residents have always had to pop into the city for an international hotel experience. Soon they will be able to head down the road to Auburn.
Marriott International has announced the signing of Courtyard by Marriott Sydney in Auburn and Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Blacktown in an agreement with Sydney-based property developers T1 Constructions.
The properties are slated to open in 2023 and 2024 respectively and mark the planned expansion of the Courtyard by Marriott and Four Points by Sheraton brands in Australia.
“These latest signings reflect Marriott International’s strong commitment to the travel and tourism industry here in Australia,” said Richard Crawford, Senior Director of Hotel Development, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific for Marriott International.
“During these unprecedented times, our ongoing goal remains to grow our business and to strengthen our offering in this region. With these signings in Auburn and Blacktown, we are doing just that, and strategically expanding our footprint into growth corridors outside Australia’s metropolitan areas.
“Auburn and Blacktown are rapidly growing communities, with a range of demand drivers for visitor accommodation. Marriott International is therefore pleased to collaborate with T1 Constructions to deliver what will be outstanding developments as we move into this exciting new phase of our expansion.”
Courtyard by Marriott Sydney, Auburn will be located at St Hilliers Road, Auburn, close to the Parramatta River and Sydney Olympic Park. There will be 203 guest rooms, an outdoor pool with a sun deck, and a modern fitness centre complete with sauna and steam rooms.
It will also feature several of the Courtyard by Marriott brand’s signature amenities: The Bistro, an all-day, fast-casual restaurant featuring live stations, a collaborative lobby lounge space, for guests to unwind, relax and socialise as they please and the 24/7 Market – a grab and go café serving bakery items and pastries.
