The Hyatt Regency brand marked its return to Sydney with the debut of Hyatt Regency Sydney. Having operated in Australia for over 30 years,
Hyatt hotels have developed a strong reputation in the country, and the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Sydney provides an opportunity for Hyatt to build on its Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) leadership in Asia Pacific.
Hyatt Regency Sydney is set to become a go-to gathering place – a dynamic spot where guests can relax, meet, engage, and recharge. It offers an unparalleled location in the Sydney Central Business District adjacent to Darling Harbour, providing the perfect setting for business and leisure travelers, as well as meeting and events.
“Following its multi-million dollar redevelopment, Hyatt Regency Sydney opens today showcasing a stunning transformation,” said David Udell, group president – Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “It’s a great feeling to welcome the return of the Hyatt Regency brand, which will be a key flagship Hyatt Regency hotel for Hyatt in both Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Guests can now enjoy many of the hotel’s facilities, including state-of-the-art meeting and event facilities and a new Regency Club lounge, all of which will provide the ultimate dwelling for both business and leisure travelers to relax and unwind.”
The hotel’s transformation includes a new 24-story tower, which adds an additional 222 guestrooms to the total room count making the 892-room property the largest upscale, full service hotel in Australia. Hyatt Regency Sydney features a 272-seat all day dining restaurant, and the open-air bar, set to open in late December, will be the ultimate destination for superior viewing of Sydney’s world class New Year’s Eve fireworks.
Additionally, the hotel features more than 37,100 square feet (3,450 square meters) of state-of-the-art meeting spaces for events, including two ballrooms that can seat more than 1,000 people, which are part of the new pillar-less convention center with panoramic views of Darling Harbour.
