IHG Signs Crowne Plaza Hotel in Sydneys CBD

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Beijing-based development company, Ausbao Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of BCDH Group, for a new 160-room Crowne Plaza hotel in Sydneys CBD.

The Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour will form part of a mixed use development in close proximity to the new Sydney International Convention Centre and key business and leisure redevelopments in the Darling Quarter and the Barangaroo south precinct.

The new hotel will feature five meeting rooms, a 24-hour business centre, an all-day dining restaurant, a bar, fully equipped fitness centre and an outdoor pool.

Jason Gao, Managing Director of Ausbao, said, Sydney as a meetings and tourism destination continues to show positive growth, and new developments within the city will help support this. It is a great time to be developing an internationally-branded hotel with IHG in the upscale space, especially as Crowne Plaza is globally recognised as a leading business hotel brand and we are confident this is what the location needs. We are pleased to be working with IHG and look forward to welcoming guests to Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour when it opens in 2019.
