Traveller destination status enhanced
WESTERN Sydney’s growing international reputation as a major tourist and business traveller destination will be further boosted by three new hotel projects.

Parramatta’s rapidly growing CBD is set to get even busier with hundreds of new hotel rooms set to come online by 2020, leading property web site The Urban Developer reports.
These include two hotel developments which have recently been given the green light by the City of Parramatta, the 300-room Starwood Four Points by Sheraton and the 200-room QT Hotel and Resorts.
The Four Points, developed by JZL Properties and backed by Sandstone Capital, is located at 89 George Street with the entire 27-storey tower set to house Marriott’s Four Point by Sheraton brand.
The hotel will sit on an18m wide lot neighbouring  Perth House, a single-storey sandstone Colonial Victorian Georgian residence dating back to 1841.
"The architecture of the podium is a clear and sensitive response to the heritage item, Perth House,” architecture firm Group GSA said in its submission.
"The increased setbacks improve vistas and the legibility of Perth House and its contributory landscape. The selections of proposed materials respond to those of Perth House in a modern interpretation of the classic palette," the application said.
"The development will create a vibrant precinct and a hotel destination that engages with the public realm and its contextual surroundings.”
The five-star QT Hotel accommodation will take up 17-storeys of the recently-approved 8 Phillip Street property developed by Coronation Property.
The Woods Bagot-designed $239M 8 Phillip Street tower offers 314 residential units and nine-levels of basement car parking.
Rockpool dining group confirmed in early-2017 that it will bring two of its premium restaurants to the Coronation Property project.
Coronation Property's 55-storey  skyscraper will offer about 250 hotel rooms through the QT brand.
Due to be completed in 2021, it will transform Parramatta CBDs skyline with its new twisting, metallic glass structure which has been described as “quirky”.
International architects Woods Bagot have designed the rhomboid-shaped high-rise as a significant destination, one that symbolises the exhilarating rise and momentum of the new Parramatta.
The mixed-use tower will comprise 314 residences of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom configurations as well as studios and penthouses. Many apartments feature unparalleled views capturing Parramatta River and surrounds looking out to the Sydney CBD skyline.
For resident’s interiors of the apartments offer the finest palette of materials and fittings including kitchens with ‘Carrara look’ stone bench tops, Miele appliances and Fisher and Paykel integrated refrigerator.
Coronation Property is partnering with with QT Hotel to fuse intelligently with residences in the sky with a five star hotel complex..
The building's unique design will incorporate the existing church which currently occupies the address.
QT Hotels’ signature design, combined with bold entertainment and relaxing guest experiences has become renowned in the hotel and hospitality sector since it opened QT Gold Coast in 2011.
Westmead is also set to get a major new hotel.  Sydney, developer Drill has reportedly lodged a development application to redevelop its ageing Westmead Shopping Centre site and replace it with a mixed-use building offering 97 hotel rooms.
Meanwhile, Harry Triguboff’s Meriton Group has also said it will bring its Meriton Suites serviced apartments to its five-building 180 George Street development. Meriton opened 254 hotel suites at its Church Street building in Parramatta in 2016.
Finally, Australia’s largest serviced apartment group Quest Hotels also lodged an application earlier this year for an eight-storey hotel in Parramatta.
