The Australasian pipeline for the Hilton Garden Inn brand has grown to five after Hilton revealed plans to introduce the brand to Kingswood, in Sydney’s western suburbs, as part of a redeveloped Nepean Health Club precinct.
On track to open in 2023, the new-build Hilton Garden Inn Sydney Kingswood will feature 140 rooms and has been signed in partnership with property developer, Boston Global. The new signing will increase the company’s overall presence in the NSW capital to three, alongside the flagship Hilton Sydney and West Hotel, a Curio Collection by Hilton.
Nepean Health Club has earmarked an extensive AUD$1 billion redevelopment plan which will see it increase its capacity to meet the growing region’s health care and social assistance needs.
The new hotel will feature within this redevelopment and will also be a short walk to Western Sydney University’s Penrith campus as well as many local cultural and recreational attractions. It will also be located 64 kilometres from Sydney’s existing Kingsford Smith Airport and 16 kilometres from the new Badgerys Creek Airport, which is due to begin passenger service in 2026.
Facilities for guests and visitors will include a full-service restaurant and bar, meeting facilities, fitness centre, rooftop bar and 24-hour ‘Grab and Go’ self-serve retail store offering beverages, treats and other essentials.
Hilton Senior Vice President, Development, Asia and Australasia, Guy Phillips, said the company was looking forward to forming an enduring relationship with Boston Global on Hilton Garden Inn Sydney Kingswood.
“The hotel’s location in the heart of the growing economic powerhouse of Western Sydney, already Australia’s third largest economy, will cater to both domestic and international leisure and business visitors travelling to this metropolis,” Phillips said.
With Western Sydney continuing its rapid growth trajectory in residential, corporate and industrial circles, the hotel will seek to provide a comfortable and affordable accommodation option for both business and leisure travellers.
“Boston Global and its investors are delighted to partner with Hilton for the strength and recognition of their best-in-class brands,” said Boston Global Group Managing Director, Corey Cooney.
“This project will bring their Hilton Garden Inn brand to Sydney for the first time, and the new hotel designed by Rothelowman will include high quality facilities to meet community needs, including wellness and food and beverage options.”
Hilton will introduce the Garden Inn brand to Australia later this year with the maiden opening in Albany, Western Australia. Further additional signings will see the brand arrive in the Melbourne suburb of Bundoora, Busselton in WA and the Fijian capital of Suva in the coming years.
