EVENT Hospitality and Entertainment is set to manage the Crowne Plaza Newcastle, after signing an agreement with the Schwartz Family Company.
“After more than 10 years out of the Newcastle market, EVENT Hospitality & Entertainment is pleased to bring Rydges back to this city,” said Normal Arundel, Director of Hotel & Resorts Operations.
The property will then rebrand into a Rydges Hotel on 03 March and will be managed alongside EVENT’s current collection of hotels and resorts across Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
Commenting on the deal, Dr Jerry Schwartz called Newcastle a “thriving city” and has “enormous future potential for business and leisure travel”.
“I have established a strong relationship with Rydges in recent years and I am confident their management will be able to take the Newcastle hotel to higher levels, both in terms of performance and guest satisfaction,” Schwartz said.
Located on the waterfront, the 175 room hotel provides leisure and business travellers the perfect destination to explore the harbour city.
Guests can enjoy the outdoor lap swimming pool, restaurant, bar, business centre and extensive functions facilities for meetings or special events.
