IHG, St Marys Rugby League Club partner for new Sydney Holiday Inn

InterContinental Hotels Group and St Marys Rugby League Club have signed a franchise agreement for a 123-room, new-build Holiday Inn hotel in St Marys, Greater Sydney.  

The Holiday Inn Sydney St Marys is scheduled to open in late 2017, less than 30 miles west of Sydney’s central business district. The hotel will be part of the St Mary’s Rugby Leagues Club entertainment precinct, which already has four restaurants and three bars as well as the Skypeak Adventures outdoor activity center.

“This signing is a very important, and timely one for IHG; the development of this hotel with St Marys Rugby League Club marks the start of a great long-term relationship,” Matt Tripolone, head of development Australasia & Japan, IHG said in a statement. “The positioning of Holiday Inn Sydney St Marys provides the opportunity to expand our footprint in this prime location, ideally suited to both weekday and weekend travelers.
