Discover our Refurbished Rooms
Updated: Dec 22, 2021
In April 2021 we unveiled phase 1 of our Holiday Inn Sydney Airport hotel refurbishment. This involved the modernising of 50% of our inventory and the creation of new room categories.
The newly launched room categories, King Superior and Junior Suites are fresh and modern. They have plenty of space and are designed to make you smile. From the comfortable beds, 55 inch TVs, Nespresso Pod machines, free Wi-Fi and soundproof windows with black out blinds, your stay is sure to be full of rest, relaxation and a little bit of fun.
We asked Anita McInnes (Director of Sales and Marketing) and Andrew McDonald (Hotel Services Assistant Manager) for more information on the refurbishment.
What do you like about our refurbished Junior Suites and King Superior guestrooms?
Andrew: My favourite is the leather finishing’s around the room (floor to ceiling, luggage stand, desk chair and armchairs) It makes the room feel a little more luxurious and warm.
Anita: I love the perfectly placed make up mirrors, the colour of the grey marble in the bathrooms which pops against the white vanity and towels, the colour of the occasional chair and ottoman, the brass fixtures and zoned lighting options and the USB ports bedside for easy device charging.
What subtle change has made a difference to the guest experience?
Anita: We have gone from shower over bath to walk in shower and the TV is now mounted on the wall in a slim cabinet (instead of on a TV cupboard).
How has the workspace environment been improved in the refurbished guestrooms?
Andrew: The workspace is well designed with ample desk space to work on the go, ergonomic seating and lighting. And we have power points that aren't close to the floor.
Anita: The placement in the majority of the rooms has not changed, we do have USB ports at the right spots on the wall and the lighting above is zoned. Also with the window to your side, the glare does not affect a laptop or any other device.
What feature have you not seen in any other hotel room you have been to?
Anita: The floor to ceiling bedhead in leather.
A big thank you to Anita and Andrew for sharing their feedback!
