Shangri-La Sydney new Horizon Club Rooms - EDITED

Shangri-La Hotel Sydney’s refurbished Horizon Club rooms are set to debut in the coming weeks.

The property is currently undertaking an AUD$8 million refurbishment of the Horizon Club and 90 hotel rooms and suites on the hotel’s top five accommodation levels.

Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s vice president and general manager, Michael Cottan, said the rooms were being opened in stages from mid -November 2014 and the re-launch would take service and accommodation for discerning travellers to the next level.

“Since we first opened in 2003, the Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has become one of the icons of the Sydney hotel landscape and attracts a growing set of increasingly loyal frequent guests from around Australia and around the globe,” Cottan said.

“The demand for our Horizon Club facilities has been overwhelming and, with our new Horizon Club floor, more guests are able to experience the higher standard of accommodation that the Horizon Club offers, as well as the acclaimed personalised service, special privileges and amenities,” he said.

The new rooms will be among the biggest hotel rooms available in Sydney – the largest one offering a vast 242 square metres of living and entertaining space with two bedrooms, an executive study room, private dining room, a personal butler and a grand piano.

The Horizon Club lounge is a four-storey atrium, which takes in sweeping views across Sydney Harbour to the magnificent Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

It will have an entirely new décor and will include one of Sydney’s only communal tables in a five-star hotel club lounge, as well as superb boardroom facilities, WiFi and broadband internet and magazines and newspapers.

The refurbishment works are being undertaken by ISIS Group Australia.
