Hayden Hughes named general manager of Hilton Sydney

Brisbane native Hayden Hughes has made his way back to Sydney for the second time in his career.

Hayden has been appointed general manager of Hilton Sydney in Sydney’s CBD after serving as general manager of the Sofitel Brisbane Central. 

Hayden said: “I am grateful for the opportunity to join such an internationally renowned brand to lead the iconic hotel that is Hilton Sydney, the opportunity was irresistible. The timing could not be more perfect as we gear up for what we hope is a big year for the hotel in 2021.”

A 30-year hospitality veteran, Hayden began his career with Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove where he spent six years in operations. From there, Hayden held management positions at hotels on the Gold Coast, in Tokyo, Japan and in Brisbane. Hayden moved into his first general manager role at Novotel Melbourne on Collins in 2010 and then held general manager positions at Accor’s Darling Harbour, Sydney hotels before his return to Brisbane.

Hilton Sydney provides guests with a complement of services and amenities, including 587 guest rooms, 3,786 square meters of event space, an indoor swimming pool, a chef’s hatted restaurant run by celebrity chef, Luke Mangan, two bars including the 127 year old underground and heritage listed Marble Bar, and the largest hotel gym in Australia, Fitness First Pitt St Platinum.

Good Day Hayden.
I wish you plenty of success and pleasure and satisfaction in leading the Hilton to a further string of successes. I was part of the opening team, as Sales Manager, more than 40 years ago (?) under Tony Carpenter. Glorious times in the history of Sydney and Australian hotellerie. And of course “The Hilton”became one of it’s legends. And it should stay that way.
Many cheers. Pierre Stacher
