Sofitel Hotel Darling Harbour 2017

By Mark Constantine
In Accor’s latest news, the new Sofitel Hotel Darling Harbour will open in 2017!

Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour is part of the NSW Government’s $2.5 billion transformation of Darling Harbour, which includes the creation of Sydney’s new convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct. A touch of Sofitel’s French luxury roots and local concepts will come into play as the 35 story building will become the new “standout building” in Darling Harbour.

“Think Sydney Harbour combined with Southern France, the French Rivieria and Provence” – Michael Issenberg
“As well as providing a luxurious accommodation option on site, with around 600 rooms the hotel will be a significant and welcome addition to Sydney’s accommodation stocks.”

Michael Issenberg, boss for Accor Asia Pacific has been developing Darling Habour since 1985. Ever since, Accor has taken over Australia in the hotel industry, after building significant hotels and apartments  in Darling Harbour- Novotel, Ibis, Grand Mercure Apartments and the Convention centre.

Currently, Accor is the largest operator of hotels in Australia wit 560 hotels and more. Issenberg also sees opportunities to expand in Perth & Adelaide.
