Event signs Sydney CBD Rydges with Austin Hotels
Event Hospitality and Entertainment has signed an agreement with Austin Hotels Group to manage the hotel formerly known as Radisson Hotel and Suites Sydney, renamed Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel.
Located in Sydney’s CBD near Darling Harbour, the 98-room property has remained closed of late as it undergoes a comprehensive refurbishment of apartments and studios, restaurant, bar and conference facilities. The hotel also includes an on-site gym and swimming pool.
The event will rename the hotel before it reopens on August 8, 2022.
The Rydges property is Austin Hotels Group’s first hotel to market.
“As this is our first investment in the hospitality industry in Australia, we were looking for a local Australian brand that had a strong national loyalty footprint and would work well with the high supply the refurbishment had created,” said Yu Dongxiao of Austin Hotels Group.
“So we knew Rydges would be the perfect fit and found the perfect partner in Event to represent the property and deliver strong local results. We appreciate Event’s personalized local approach to hotel management and look forward to a strong future in partnership together.
Event Hospitality and Entertainment’s Director of Hotel and Resort Operations Norman Arundel said he is looking forward to bringing the property to life.
“We look forward to working with the incredible local teams to amplify hotel offerings through Event’s sales and marketing channels, and to providing our guests with the unparalleled hotel experience they expect from the Rydges brand.” , did he declare.
The Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel is the latest in a series of recent signings by Event including Rydges Perth King Square, The Miller and Rydges Rotorua.
