Business travellers heading to Sydney and Melbourne will get even more accommodation choices over the next few years as the cities’ skylines are graced with new hotels, while existing properties also look to rejuvenate their image with new fit-outs to please discerning guests.

Among the list of new developments are the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour and the Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands hotels, while Sydney's existing Langham Hotel is currently undergoing renovations to bring a new look and feel to the iconic property, along with the introduction of the brand-standard Palm Court and Chuan Spa.

It's an article which wraps up recent 'new hotel opening' pieces we've done, similar to our regular and very popular 'Friday frequent flyer wrap' articles. With so many stories each day we find that many of the useful frequent flyer stories we run can easily be overlooked – so the wrap is part remedy, part recap. We're experimenting to see if this same treatment can be applied to our 'new hotel' articles.

What about the new Crown hotel at Barangaroo?

It's also a shame Australia doesn't have any old world style hotels like in North America and Europe.

It needs a serious update unfortunately. It's a little too old world. A far cry from hotels like The London Ritz.

Err, Double Bay is a little out of the way. Unless all the power suits you're meeting live in Rose Bay and Bellevue Hill, which is possible.
