Sheraton Hotels and Resorts, part of Marriott International, has announced the completion of the $50-million transformation of the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park, formerly known as Sheraton on the Park.
With the refurbishment, the iconic Sydney hotel will also receive the brand’s esteemed ‘Grand’ designation.
Founded in some of the world’s most treasured destinations, Sheraton Grand hotels are recognized for their iconic locations, cultivated sense of design, exceptional service, exemplary dining concepts and exquisite spa experiences.
“We are honoured to receive the coveted designation of Sheraton Grand,” said David Fraser, General Manager, Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park.
“From the renovation of the rooms to all the public spaces, we wanted to set ourselves up for the future by ensuring the new design of the hotel reflects modernity but pays homage to its heritage. It is a wonderful testament to the exceptional level of service provided by our team.”
Embracing its 24 years of history in the community, Sheraton on the Park, now Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park, will be the fourth stop, on Sheraton’s global “Heart for the City” tour.
This tour will travel to seven cities around the globe, showcasing some of Sheraton’s most iconic hotels, and the unique role these hotels play in their local communities and cities.
The Sydney tour will highlight the city’s transformative history and also allow guests and locals to experience an immersive sensory journey inspired by the hotel’s renowned high tea service.
Following a stone pathway through a tunnel of lush greenery, flowers and lights – reminiscent of a stroll through the neighbouring Hyde Park – visitors will emerge into a larger-than-life whimsical wonderland with a number of photo-worthy moments.
Such moments include a floor-to-ceiling green wall, life-sized cups and saucers and a gigantic tiered cake stands of sweet treats. Sydney’s “Heart for the City” stop will also feature the Sheraton Transformation Room, where guests and locals will be immersed in a future vision of the Sheraton Hotels experience.
Visitors will get a peek at the upcoming redesign of Sheraton via a dynamic projection mapping experience that demonstrates how the brand will utilize space redesign and curated amenities and services to enable gathering and productivity. – HotelNewsAsia.com
