The first images of the refurbished rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour have been released by Starwood, showing a contemporary remodeling of one of Australia’s largest hotels.
Owners M&L Hospitality are spending AUD$15 million on the refurbishment which was designed by Melbourne-based Elenberg Fraser and is being fitted-out by industry leaders ISIS.
The refurbishment spans the hotel’s 630 rooms along with The Corn Exchange restaurant, the hotel’s ballroom and heritage atrium.
“In order to create a sense of place, design influence [for the rooms] was taken from the location in Darling Harbour and its position on the edge of the business district which forms our client base,” Four Points by Sheraton Sydney said in a statement.
“Another important consideration in our approach to the guest room interiors was the consumer reaction against the excess of recent times.
“We are striving to create an interior that embraces simplicity, authenticity and an emotional response which still appeals to the discerning client.
“All rooms will be complete with wireless access and iPod connectivity to complement our new LCD Televisions,” the property said.
The renovation to The Corn Exchange includes a new outdoor setting, while the ballroom’s upgrade will see the latest audio visual technology installed.
