Anyone needing to stay overnight at Sydney Airport will have an even wider choice of hotels when the Mantra Group opens the new-build Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport in June.
The nine-level hotel - which has moved into its fit-out phase - is on track to open in late June and will feature 136 contemporary guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, car parking, and an integrated lobby and reception space.
Mantra Group area manager for Sydney, Neil McDonald, said it was an exciting moment to see the structure of the hotel completed.
“The completion of the geometric-inspired building exterior marks a significant event in the property's construction and we're thrilled to see this landmark building taking shape,” he said.
“Once open, the hotel will address Sydney's real need for greater, and more contemporary, on-airport hotel accommodation.”
Work will now move to the interiors with rooms painted, joinery being fitted and soft furnishing being added.
Mantra Group chief executive Officer Bob East said the hotel aims to meet the demand for business travellers looking for conveniently-located accommodation close to the airport and its terminals.
“It will be a contemporary iteration of an airport hotel and will mirror how people typically interact at an airport, featuring a 24/7 atmosphere and service, informal meeting spaces and a relaxed dining and service culture," he said.
"We expect our loyal Mantra guests will readily embrace this new hotel and the hotel's dynamic food and beverage offering will distinguish it as a standout in the area.”
The restaurant and bar will serve a "provincial" menu, featuring regional beef and sustainably-sourced local seafood, served with local draught beer, wines and handcrafted cocktails.
The new hotel also has several sustainability measures under consideration including solar panels, rainwater storage tanks, electric car charging station and bicycle facilities for staff and guests.
Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is located a short distance from the T2/T3 domestic terminals at 3 Ross Smith Avenue. It will be the eighth Mantra property in Sydney.
