New Sydney Hotel
Australian Turf Club (ATC) Chairman John Cornish announced today that international company Toga Hotels has signed an Agreement to manage a 170 room, 4 star hotel at Royal Randwick.
Branded Adina Apartment Hotel Royal Randwick Racecourse, the unique track fronting hotel is part of the ATC's world-class redevelopment of Royal Randwick Racecourse and its vision to create Sydney's best racing, entertainment and events destination.
This hotel is a key part of a growing array of centralised services and accommodation to benefit Members and the broader community. ATC is also taking advantage of a buoyant Sydney hotel market, with occupancy rates near all time highs and room rates on the increase.
The hotel will be located along Alison Road at the end of the main straight, with spectacular views over the racetrack towards the winning post and across Centennial Park to the city skyline.
The new hotel will provide quality accommodation to race day attendees, local and visiting businesses, as well as tourists, event goers and the surrounding community including UNSW, Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney Cricket Ground, Allianz Stadium, Sydney International Airport, and Sydney CBD.
A restaurant, pool deck bar and conference facilities within the hotel will provide superior dining and business facilities to hotel guests, race-goers and the local residential and business community.
The hotel will be operated by the Toga Hotels, who are responsible for the management of 52 hotels across Australia, New Zealand and Europe under the recognised brands of Medina Hotels, Adina Hotels, Vibe Hotels and Travelodge Hotels.
Rachel Argaman, CEO of Toga Hotels said "Toga Hotels is excited to announce plans to open Adina Royal Randwick Racecourse and help support the Australian Turf Club's vision of creating Sydney's premier racing and entertainment destination".
"The Adina Hotel brand will be an ideal fit for Sydney's racing heartland, offering serious levels of space and a commitment to contemporary design. Guests will feel immediately at home with separate lounge rooms, bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens and laundries along with lifestyle facilities such as a gym, pool and restaurant. For those wanting to experience the excitement of trackside action, many rooms will feature balconies with views toward the winning post.
"Adina Royal Randwick Racecourse will fill a much needed gap with accommodation and lifestyle facilities in this dynamic precinct that is the home to the sport of kings".
The hotel is expected to commence construction in late 2012, with an opening date to follow completion of the Royal Randwick Grandstand redevelopment in 2014.
