Pan Pacific Hotels Group announced plans for a multi-million dollar extension of PARKROYAL Parramatta in Sydney. Costing AU$25 million ($19 million), the development commenced this March, and is eyed to make PARKROYAL Parramatta the largest hotel in Parramatta - boasting 286 guestrooms - by June 2016.
With Parramatta City set for an AU$8 billion building investment over the next five years, the city's skyline will be reshaped by over 32 new residential, commercial and key public features. With the developments, Parramatta could overtake Adelaide to become the nation's fifth largest Central Business District.
The 15-month project will involve the construction of a new seven-story tower with a Club Lounge, as well as 40 Club Rooms and 50 Premium Rooms that offer views of the Parramatta skyline and incorporate the use of the latest hotel technology and innovation. Club guests will be offered priority check-in and check-out, as well as complimentary breakfast, laundry services, regular refreshments throughout the day and a new gymnasium.
The addition of four meeting rooms will bring PARKROYAL Parramatta's total number of conference and meeting spaces to 12 rooms, making it the largest meetings and events hotel in Parramatta.
As part of the renovations, the premises of the BAR:30 restaurant and bar will be extended out to Phillip Street to introduce an alfresco dining element.
Elsewhere in Sydney, Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and manages PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney; PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport; and Pan Pacific Perth.
