A ten-year franchise agreement with owner Australia and NZ International Investment Group will see the Clarion Hotel on the Park Parramatta rebrand as Holiday Inn Parramatta. ANZIIG purchased the hotel in August 2010, and entered a franchise agreement with Choice Hotels to convert the property from a Courtyard by Marriott into a Clarion hotel.
The hotel incorporates an all-day dining restaurant, bar, seven meeting rooms totaling 3,993 square feet of function space, a heated outdoor pool, business center, and parking for 220 vehicles.
The hotel is in the middle of a refurbishment program in which all guestrooms and public areas have already been upgraded. Holiday Inn’s international brand hallmarks will be put in place upon rebranding of the hotel this October.
The agreement to bring Holiday Inn to Western Sydney coincides with the brand’s 60th birthday, and following the S$1-billion investment into revitalizing the brand globally.
