IHG Hotels & Resorts cements its presence in Western Sydney as it announces a fourth hotel in Parramatta CBD

January 25, 2022 Hotel Developments No Comments

IHG Hotels & Resorts is set to become the biggest hotel player in the Parramatta CBD, as it signs an agreement with Pro-invest Group to open Holiday Inn Express & Suites Paramatta, the fourth IHG-branded hotel in the booming Greater Western Sydney hub.

The announcement kicks off 2022 in a big way for IHG, continuing the momentum that saw it sign 10 hotels across Australasia last year, and has it poised to open at least 15 hotels in the first half of 2022 alone. 

Complementing its existing Parramatta hotels, Holiday Inn & Suites Parramatta Marsden Street and Holiday Inn Parramatta, IHG will soon have an even more exceptional offering as it takes its Parramatta portfolio to four IHG-branded hotels and more than 650 rooms, adding Holiday Inn Express & Suites Parramatta in 2024 and the luxury InterContinental Parramatta in 2025. It boosts the Group’s already formidable presence in Greater Western Sydney that includes Holiday Inn Warwick Farm, Holiday Inn St Marys and Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley 

Pro-invest, which owns and operates 14 open or pipeline hotels under IHG’s Holiday Inn Express, voco, Hotel Indigo and Kimpton brands, will manage the purpose-built Holiday Inn Express & Suites Parramatta. The new addition to the city’s accommodation offering will be located right in the centre of the CBD with a prime Smith Street frontage and will boast 239 guestrooms, car parking, meeting facilities and a gymnasium. It will have all the hallmarks of the Holiday Inn Express brand, including express breakfast facilities, express check-in and check-out and bright, comfortable guestrooms. 

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Parramatta announcement comes hot on the heels of the 2021 news that InterContinental Parramatta would open in 2025 – a major coup as it heralds the city’s first internationally branded luxury hotel. The new-build InterContinental Parramatta will be part of a vibrant mixed-use development that also includes offices and a ground floor retail precinct. In September, hotel owner Holdmark Property Group announced architecture firm Scott Carver as the winner of the design competition, delivering a brilliantly cosmopolitan design that draws on the brand’s iconic heritage, with a strong connection to community.  

Holiday Inn Parramatta joined the IHG network in 2012 and has been providing exceptional hospitality to guests for the past ten years. It was joined by Holiday Inn & Suites Parramatta Marden Street in 2020, becoming the first in Australia with a suites offering, with many more now in the pipeline, including Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong and Holiday Inn & Suites Ballarat Goldfields. 

Jael Fischer, Director Development IHG Hotels & Resorts Australasia, said “Parramatta has cemented itself as a major commercial hub in New South Wales, and IHG is excited to be at the forefront of re-shaping the city’s accommodation landscape. We are thrilled to be providing guests with an expanded range of accommodation options to suit their needs, and look forward to working closely with the community and being a major contributor to the local economy.  

“Holiday Inn Express & Suites Parramatta will be Pro-invest’s 14th IHG-branded hotel and we are immensely proud of our partnership and look forward to working with the team and further bolstering our network with them.”  

Shantha de Silva, Head of Operations at Pro-invest Hotels, said “We are so excited to be growing our portfolio in the heart of Western Sydney and in a location that will be of great benefit and accessibility to locals, business and leisure travellers. Parramatta is such a thriving commercial hub and the Holiday Inn Express brand is well suited to cater to those travellers that are needing a warm, inviting and comfortable place to stay while in town for business.  

“2022 is going to be a big year for Pro-invest and IHG Hotels & Resorts as we work together to open seven hotels in the first half of this year. We are very pleased to be continuing our great partnership with IHG and look forward to being part of the Western Sydney community as we work to build and launch Holiday Inn Express & Suites Parramatta”.   

Parramatta is regarded as the main commercial centre for the broader Greater Western Sydney Region and is seen as one of Australia’s fastest growing cities. With significant infrastructure projects in place, it’s clear that the self-styled capital of Sydney’s west is a highly sought-after destination. Around a third of Australia’s top 100 businesses now have office space in Parramatta and with Western Sydney Airport at Badgery’s Creek just a 30-minute drive away along with Sydney CBD, business and leisure travellers to the area well catered for. 

IHG has 98 open or pipeline hotels across Australasia, including 41 in the Holiday Inn brand family, and plans to continue to grow the brand’s network over the coming years.
