Sydney to get a new landmark hotel

Sydney is to get a new landmark hotel with Accor, the leading hospitality group, and a joint venture between Sydney developer Central Element and property investor Boston Global (CEBH) unveiling the city's first 25hours property.

The 25hours Sydney is scheduled to open in 2022 in Paddington, bringing life back to one of Sydney’s most iconic event and hospitality precincts.

The building first opened in 1911 as the West’s Olympia Theatre and sits on one of Sydney's best-known and busiest intersections, where Oxford Street meets South Dowling Street, Victoria Street and Barcom Avenue.

In its 1990s heyday, the building housed the Grand Pacific Blue Room.

25hours Hotel Sydney will be situated in Oxford Street Village Centre and is perfectly positioned for guests, in an area renowned for its diverse culture and creative scene, close to retailers, restaurants and parklands.

CEBH has commissioned award-winning Australian architecture firm Tonkin Zulaikha Greer to design the 25hours hotel which will encompass 105 guestrooms and a spectacular rooftop bar overlooking Oxford Street and Sydney’s eastern suburbs and harbour.

Two interior design companies will work on the project with A Work of Substance from Hong Kong designing the rooms, public areas and events spaces.

Sydney-based interior designers Acme & Co will work on the rooftop bar, restaurant and café offerings.

A restaurant "of exceptional quality" is planned for the hotel. There will also be a café on the ground floor on Oxford Street, a state-of-art fitness centre and extensive conference facilities.

Wayne Chivas of CEBH said: “It has been our long-term vision to create a hotel of stature and presence in the heart of Sydney. We are delighted that in 25hours, we have found the perfect partner for this unique building.

"25hours will be a hotel characterised by personality and charming, relaxed service, enriching Oxford Street and the city’s culinary and bar scene.”

25hours Sydney is the second 25hours Hotel to be announced in Australia, after plans for 25hours Melbourne were revealed last year.
