Six Continents Hotels has appointed Tony Zamora as General Manager of its landmark InterContinental Sydney Hotel.

Tony brings a wealth of hospitality experience to the Hotel having worked in senior management positions throughout the Asia-Pacific region for over 30 years, the most recent being his role as Vice President, Director of Operations, in Korea and General Manager at the Grand and COEX InterContinental Hotels in Seoul, Korea.

One of Tony's key responsibilities, in conjunction with the owners, the Principal Group, will be to drive the A$50 million upgrade and refurbishment of InterContinental Sydney. The upgrade of the Hotel will see it mirror the standards and facilities that are being established in each of the InterContinental flagship properties around the world including InterContinental hotels in Hong Kong, London, New York and Tokyo.

He will also direct the new global service offerings which target modern business travellers. These include 'In An Instant' which improves the service efficiency for Priority Reward Guests by seriously reducing the check-in and check-out time at InterContinental hotels; and 'Global Connections' which helps to keep guests in touch with their office, home and local communities by providing connection to laptops without the need for special cables, through  high speed broadband access and wireless capability.

"With Tony at the helm, InterContinental Sydney will benefit from his skill and experience as it enters this exciting period of brand evolution. Under Tony's guidance and with the new global service offerings, we are confident InterContinental Sydney will provide our guests with an enhanced, consistent, and world class hotel experience," said Six Continents Hotels' Chief Operating Officer for Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, Phil Lee.
