Sydney Airport intends to begin work next year on a new hotel which will add over 300 rooms to its domestic hotel precinct.
The nine-storey property will be adjacent to the existing Mantra and Ibis Budget hotels, "creating a new integrated precinct" on the edge of the domestic terminals.
Expected to open in 2024, the property is expected to be divided between two hotel brands which will in turn complement its neighbours
Sydney Airport says guests at its new digs "can expect new bars, restaurants, club lounges, valet parking and wellness centres."
Also slated for Sydney Airport is Marriott's hipster hotel brand Moxy, which intends to open in early 2023 on Baxter Road, close to the domestic terminals and private aviation precinct.
Marriott describes Moxy as "a playful, affordable, and stylish hotel brand designed to give guests everything they want and nothing they don't. The animated brand combines stylish, industrial design and sociable service at an affordable price point."
As previously reported, the new-build hotel will comprise 301 "cosy and stylish guest rooms", while the lively Moxy Bar will double as the front desk – an approach being adopted by several hotel brands as they chase the millennials market.
Marriott promises the Moxy Sydney Airport "will offer a café with an industrial vibe as well as all-day access to a delicious food menu" while "guests can meet and work in the various meeting and event spaces, workout in the fitness centre and use the guest laundry facilities."
