The first Radisson Collection hotel in Asia
Pacific will be located in Australia's alluring Blue Mountains.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the Imperial Hotel, a
Radisson Collection Hotel, will mark the rebirth of one of
Australia's first great 'tourist hotels', which opened in 1878 and
has hosted Prime Ministers and royalty, including King George V
and George VI.
The original Imperial Hotel building will now be
restored to its former glory and a collection of stylish chalets
will be built in the property's 1.85-acre grounds.
Upon reopening, the hotel will feature 60 keys, an
all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, bar, gastro-pub
and a fitness center.A ballroom, outdoor terrace and marquee will create
for events and weddings.
The hotel is easily accessible within a one
hour and forty-five minutes' drive from downtown Sydney via the
Great Western Highway that connects the city with the Central West Region of New South Wales.
"The regional launch of the Radisson
Collection, our newest brand, represents an important milestone in
our Asia Pacific expansion strategy. Blending history with
contemporary style and intuitive hospitality, this storied hotel
is destined to become a genuine local landmark, whilst also
complementing our existing hotels in Australia. We look forward to
creating a vibrant epicenter for visitors and the local community
in the Blue Mountains. This will write a new chapter in the tale
of this Australian icon," said Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia
Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
