The new Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport in Australia has officially opened, helping to serve the 42 million passengers who travel through the airport each year and the thousands of visitors and staff who visit the airport precinct daily.
The eight-storey, 136-room landmark building is the newest hotel at Sydney Airport and Sydney’s third on-airport hotel. Many of the rooms overlook the runway, and other hotel features include an integrated reception and lobby with 24/7 service, express check-out, internet kiosk, and a restaurant with locally sourced food and beverages.
Bob East, Mantra Group CEO, said, “Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport addresses the demand for contemporary airport accommodation with vibrant, dynamic facilities and a slick service culture. We’re thrilled to partner with Sydney Airport on this project, which is a win for the economic growth of Sydney.”
New South Wales’ minister for tourism and major events Adam Marshall, who officiated the opening, added, “With record numbers flying into Sydney, new hotel openings such as the Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport provide visitors to NSW with greater choices in accommodation location, style and price point.
“New hotels in key precincts play a critical role in promoting a vibrant visitor economy while meeting the needs of growing visitor numbers to Sydney, attracting first-time and returning domestic and international travelers.
“I also know that this hotel will be warmly welcomed by people living in rural and regional areas who are often after a nearby quality hotel to stopover for a night before having to fly out again the next day.”
