IHG has confirmed the newest addition to Tasmania’s booming pre-COVID tourism sector – Crowne Plaza Hobart – will proceed with its slated grand opening on 1 July.
Owned by the Kalis Hotel Group, the 235-room property is centrally located in the Tasmanian capital and will reflect the brand’s recently launched focus on business flexibility, with a variety of shared spaces and encouraging business travellers to dedicate time to work, relaxation and sleep. The hotel will be managed by Linda Collis, who moved to oversee the property from her former home at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach.
Technology will be a key feature of the hotel, with touch-pad controls, digital in-room compendium and state-of-the-art television and WiFi connection.
Crowne Plaza Hobart will feature two new dining concepts, led by signature restaurant Core, along with The Deck, a vibrant outdoor deck and bar overlooking the city. Both venues will be led by Executive Chef, John Churchill, known for his celebration of local produce and sustainable dining practices.
For meetings, Crowne Plaza Hobart will feature six versatile spaces able to change to suit needs, including a spacious ballroom and virtual conferencing capabilities from its meeting rooms.
