Crown Group is slated to open its third luxury serviced apartment hotel in the coming months. Celebrity interior designer Juliet Ashworth of Australian firm Chada is now putting the finishing touches on the interiors of the Skye Suites Green Square in Sydney.
Chada was inspired by the flowing, organic beauty of the building's form. The hotel will have a mix of furnishings in a palette of navy, indigo, charcoal and oatmeal with accents of polished brass and hammered metal chrome lampshades. Philip Jeffries wallpapers will add to the mood with clouds and golden lily motifs.
Upon completion, Skye Suites Green Square will have 90 studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments. There will also be keyless entry and virtual concierge iPads in each suite for guests to access hotel services. A StayCast system will let guests stream in-room entertainment from their phones or laptops. Each room will have a complimentary mini-bar, while a mattress menu will let guests choose individual firmness on each side of the bed.
The hotel will be part of the $575 million Infinity by Crown Group development on the corner of Bourke Street and Botany Road. It comprises 326 residential apartments, set above a 1,180-square-meter (12,701-square-foot) central landscaped plaza, which offers guests a new precinct with 18 stores and outlets including Infinity Medical Centre, Miracle Supermarket and Bashan Noodle House.
The 20-story building, with its looped shape, was designed by Koichi Takada Architects and forms a gateway to Sydney's Green Square precinct, which is undergoing a $13 billion transformation that will also soon add a new metro station at nearby Waterloo, and an aquatic centre and public park.
Hotel guests at Skye Suites Green Square have direct access to Green Square train station. The Green Square public library that opened last year is just next door.
Crown Group launched its first Skye Hotel Suites in Parramatta in August 2017 and SKYE Suites Sydney in October 2018.
