Event Hospitality & Entertainment (EVENT) has entered into an agreement with Austin Hotels Group Pty Ltd. to manage the hotel under the official Radisson Liverpool Apartments and Suites brand; the hotel will be rebranded as Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel when it reopens on August 8, 2022.
Joining other recent signings – including Rydges Perth King Square, The Miller and Rydges Rotorua – Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel is the third new Rydges property announced in the past two months, demonstrating strong demand for the brand in Australia and New -Zeeland.
Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel is located in the center of Sydney’s CBD, close to Darling Harbor and the International Convention Centre. It features a range of standard and executive rooms, one and two bedroom suites, an on-site restaurant, room service, free Wi-Fi, gym and swimming pool, making it the base ideal for business and leisure travellers.
The 98-room property was recently closed to undergo a full renovation of apartments and studios, restaurant, bar, and conference rooms.
Mr. Yu Dongxiao of Austin Hotels Group Pty Ltd. said: “As this is our first investment in the hospitality industry in Australia, we were looking for a local Australian brand that had a strong national loyalty and would work well with the offer that the renovation had created. So we knew Rydges would be the perfect fit. Additionally, we have found the perfect EVENT partner to represent the property and deliver strong local results. We appreciate EVENT’s personalized local approach to hotel management and look forward to a strong future partnership together.
Norman Arundel, Event Hospitality and Entertainment Director of Hotel and Resorts, said, “EVENT is delighted to add Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel to our growing portfolio of hotels and resorts and to partner with Austin Hotels Group Pty Ltd. . to bring property to life in Sydney’s CBD market. We look forward to working with the incredible local teams to amplify hotel offerings through EVENT’s sales and marketing channels, and deliver our guests the unparalleled hotel experience they expect from the Rydges brand.
Under the direction of EVENT, Rydges Darling Square Apartment Hotel will fully participate in EVENT’s Priority Guest Rewards loyalty program and all of EVENT’s distribution channels, including rydges.com.
