AccorHotels in Sydney Olympic Park once again showed its prowess in hosting the world’s best sporting teams over the weekend, hosting more elite sporting athletes across Rugby, Netball and AFL codes than ever before with the New Zealand All Blacks and Silver Ferns, the England and South African netball teams as well as the Essendon Bombers all staying in house.
Hotel occupancy across Pullman, Novotel and ibis Sydney Olympic Park was at 87.3% and it was a momentous occasion for Kiwis as the Silver Ferns, in town for the Netball World Cup and All Blacks who were defeated by the Wallabies in the Bledisloe Cup both stayed at Pullman Olympic Park and held joint press conferences at the hotel.
Simon McGrath, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Pacific said it was a thrilling weekend for staff and guests of AccorHotels in the Olympic Park precinct as it welcomed stars of rugby union, AFL and women’s netball.
“AccorHotels prides itself on being a world leader in the standard of service provided to elite sporting teams and ensuring everything is done to guarantee sporting excellence on and off the field. The bumper sporting weekend we’ve just had and the positive feedback we’ve received from guests and players is testament to the quality of service we provide and the confidence we have in our staff to deliver the highest level of hospitality. The Silver Ferns and the England netball teams topped their pool winning every game last week while staying at Pullman and Novotel Olympic Park and we look forward to watching how they go for the remainder of the week.
“Nowhere before have more elite athletes across sporting codes stayed in the one complex at the same time which is a huge achievement. Having a strong events calendar is so important for our hotels and gives a major boost the broader economy, and we would like to congratulate the NSW State Government and Destination NSW on continuing to bring in major sporting events to the state.”
