A multi-million dollar renovation has been revealed by Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley, with the resort describing the improvements as a heritage inspired homage to its historic roots.
The hotel has released imagery showing the first 75 of its new-look rooms, with the remaining 30 rooms, including executive suites, due to come online with the refresh by April. Running progressively over 18 months, the NSW Hawkesbury resort is positioning itself as a tranquil oasis for both busy professionals and leisure travellers to unwind and relax.
Harking back to its history, the hotel has opted to incorporate elegant archways and natural timber finishes, aiming for an “instagrammable” feel for guests as soon as they walk in the door. Positioned as a gateway away from the busy city lifestyle, the rooms have taken on natural materials, soft colours and long lighting, coupled with an ergonomic layout.
Rooms have been fitted with upgraded technology including new smart televisions with Chromecast technology, low-energy LED lighting along with open-plan wardrobes. Aimed at promoting a sense of space and flexibility, the new rooms are in line with the ‘Future of Crowne Plaza’ room standards, which are being deployed globally and focus heavily on flexibility. Distinct zones identify a space as ideal for working, relaxing and sleeping, while rooms have also been fitted with Crowne Plaza’s Sleep Advantage program.
At the same time, the property has carried out upgrades to its Villa Thalgo Day Spa and public bathrooms.
Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley General Manager, Stephen Willis, said the feedback from guests who have already stayed in the new rooms has been fantastic.
“The light, fresh style and openness of each room is really the most notable change admired by those staying with us, along with the new bathrooms of course,” he said.
“Plus, we’re really excited because our best executive suites are still under refurbishment. We can’t wait for the feedback once these rooms are complete.”
