Marriott International has partnered the Greaton Group to introduce the Westin Hotels & Resorts brand to South Australia in 2022.
The Westin Adelaide is set to open as part of a redevelopment of the iconic Adelaide General Post Office building, located at the corner of King William and Flinders Streets, in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD.
The hotel will feature 285 guestrooms, all offering views of the city skyline and Victoria Square, an all-day dining restaurant, tearoom, bar, gymnasium, resort-style outdoor swimming pool and spa. For functions, the hotel boasts more than 310m2 of meeting and event space, as well as a 24-hour business centre.
“Expanding the Westin brand into Adelaide is important strategically, as the city is enjoying great growth and development, which isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Visitor numbers are at a record high and on track to increase by 5.1 per cent in the next 10 years,” said Sean Hunt, area vice president, Marriott International, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
Richard Crawford, senior director development, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International, commented: “The brand is enjoying phenomenal growth across Australia, where it has developed a loyal following thanks to its unique positioning around wellness. The Westin Adelaide joins Marriott International’s growing presence in the Pacific, where we’re on track to have 50 open hotels by 2020.”
The Westin footprint is expected to double in Australia over the next five years with hotels opened in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and forthcoming in Brisbane, Darwin and Coolum on the Sunshine Coast.
