Event Hospitality has signed an agreement with High Street Holdings to manage two new hotels, Rydges Perth King Square and Rydges North Sydney.

The Rydges brand will return to Perth at the six-year old CBD property currently known as Peppers King Square. The 120-room hotel, which features a gym, restaurant, bar and conference facilities, will be rebranded as Rydges.  

High Street Holdings recently purchased the Rydges North Sydney property from Event and awarded management of the hotel to the group. It will be rebranded as The Miller Hotel as part of the Independent Collection by EVENT, under the Classic Tier. The hotel will undergo a full refurbishment of rooms, conference facilities, bar, restaurant and public areas.

The latest signings build on Event’s working relationship with the High Street Holdings, which includes a partnership on Brisbane’s Kennigo Hotel, acquired by the property business as the Mantra Richmont approximately 12 months ago and rebranded under Event’s Independent Collection.

“Event is delighted to further develop the partnership with High Street Holdings and welcome these outstanding properties to our growing portfolio of hotels and resorts,” said Event Hospitality and Entertainment’s Director of Hotel and Resorts Operations, Norman Arundel.

“We look forward to working with the incredible local teams to amplify these hotels’ and provide our guests the uniquely local hotel experience they’ve come to expect from our brands.”

“We value Event’s personalised local approach to hotel management which has delivered an impressive start with the Kennigo Hotel, Brisbane.”
