Region Hotel group expands

Accor Hotels and Resorts has expanded its operations in Western Sydney, with two new hotels coming online this month – the Mercure Liverpool, adjoining the Liverpool Catholic Club, and the Novotel Rooty Hill, formerly the Holiday Inn Rooty Hill. Accor has Pullman, Ibis, Novotel, Mercure and Formule 1 properties across the region. “The best performing hotel in the past year was Novotel Sydney Olympic Park, followed by Mercure Parramatta, said Accor spokesperson, Peter Hook. “Novotel Sydney Olympic Park does consistently well and Pullman Sydney Olympic Park was the fastest improver from 2008. Grand Mercure Hills Lodge, in the Hills, is very strong in business times, and Formule 1 hotels are relatively recession proof, with Enfield and Wentworthville varying little in occupancy over the past four years,” he said. Mr Hook said Accor’s hotels in Western Sydney were forecast to record their best occupancies since 2007/early 2008 thanks to a revival in conference and corporate travel, growth in events and the lack of new supply. Pullman Sydney Olympic Park is Western Sydney's only 5-star hotel.
