Accor recently signed an agreement to manage the planned five-star Pullman Sydney Airport hotel, part of an AUD$100 million mixed-use development in the city suburb of Mascot.

When finished in May 2016, the new hotel will offer 229 rooms and suites, a restaurant and bar, gym, conference facilities and an executive lounge.

Announcing the agreement signing, Accor Pacific’s Simon McGrath, said the project would be a key development for Sydney.

“Airports are no longer considered transport hubs.

“They are transforming into complete entities where hotels, conference centres, retail and office spaces co-exist.

“Accor continues to lead as an airport hotel specialist and we are thrilled to partner with Goodman on this project, which is a win for the economic growth of Sydney and our fourth airport announcement this year.”

Once operational, Pullman Sydney Airport will join the biggest network of upscale hotels in Asia Pacific with more than 45 hotels across the region.
