Pullman announces Sydney airport hotel

Australia’s largest hotel operator, Accor, has announced it will be part of a new mixed-use hotel, commercial and retail precinct to be developed in Mascot, near Sydney Airport.

Accor has signed a management agreement with Goodman Group to manage a five-star hotel to be badged Pullman Sydney Airport as part of a new $100 million development project that will encompass extensive office and retail facilities.

Accor Pacific chief operating officer, Simon McGrath, said the project will be a key development for Sydney. The Sydney hotel market has been considerably constrained over the last two years with occupancies idling between 80-90 per cent, hence the urgency for new inventory to service the high corporate and leisure demand in the city. Pullman Sydney Airport will not only add 229 rooms to Sydney’s bourgeoning tourism economy but it will be the first internationally branded five-star hotel serving the international airport precinct.”

Goodman’s general manager Australia, Jason Little, said, “The new mixed-use precinct provides the highest and best use for this prominent south Sydney site and complements the DA approved future development of two commercial office buildings, totalling 34,350m², together with ground floor retail space.”

Pullman Sydney Airport will include 229 accommodation rooms and suites, a restaurant and bar, conference facilities and gymnasium. The hotel will offer an Executive Lounge – a hallmark of every Pullman hotel – adding a quiet and convenient space for guests to do business or relax.

Construction of the hotel development on O’Riordan Street, Mascot has began in November generating over 100 jobs during the build. The expected opening date for Pullman Sydney Airport is May 2016.
