Sydney Airport to get new hotel near domestic T2, T3 terminals

Sydney Airport to get new hotel near domestic T2, T3 terminals

Sydney Airport will gain a second hotel within the airport precinct as part of a major overhaul of the T2 and T3 domestic terminal zone.

The upmarket hotel, which the airport expects to be a "four- to five-star" property, would have approximately 430 rooms.

A Preliminary Draft plan for the T2/T3 area, revealed over the weekend by Sydney Airport Corporation, pegs the hotel's location at the northern edge of the airport precinct, sandwiched between Qantas Drive and a new 'ground transport interchange'.

While a score of hotels are located in suburbs surrounding the airport, the first hotel directly within the airport precinct – and thus a short stroll from the terminal – opened only last year in the Rydges Sydney Airport, which sits adjacent to the international T1 terminal.

The proposed hotel at the T2/T3 end of the airport would have over a hundred rooms more than the 318-room Rydges Sydney Airport.

My first stay in the rydges on the weekend & I was very impressed.  Grerat location (taken !!), great WiFi Speed, excellent service & rooms with excellent facilities & Foxtel included.  Plus the Rydges Priviledges included Welcome Drink & food etc discounts plus 1pm checkout.  And for not two much more the the 'budget hotel' around the other way that requires a hazourdous walk & / or a bus transfer !!:)

Wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being Starwood that dips their toe into the airport hotel market in Australia's biggest city, what with their currently massive Aussie expansion.

I hope they provide free shuttle,as I would not like to fight with a taxi driver for such a short journey.
