A new brand aimed at savvy business travellers shows
cutting-edge flair in its flagship hotel in Sydney.
The nation's campaigning politicians weren't the only ones paying attention to western Sydney late last year. Soon after the Federal election, the 122-room Atura Blacktown opened, the first property in a new hotel brand by Amalgamated Holdings Ltd (AHL), better known for its portfolio of QT Hotels & Resorts, Art Series and Rydges hotels.
The aim, says AHL's Stephen Howard, was to create a radically different mid-market hotel for savvy business travellers in fringe CBD and high-growth locations. Atura Blacktown, for example, is near the M4 motorway, a business park and 10 minutes' drive from Sydney's second CBD of Parramatta. "The focus is on design, personality and great value," says Howard, citing state-of-the-art business and conference facilities, in-room kitchenettes, Malin + Goetz bathroom products and complimentary in-room movies, local calls and parking for a lead-in price of $159. (Last month, AHL introduced free WiFi in all its hotels.)
Designed and styled by Nic Graham, responsible for the bold, eye-popping interiors at QT Sydney, Port Douglas and Gold Coast, Atura Blacktown has features such as a retro mosaic-tiled pool, industrial-styled exposed pipework and a pool table in the lobby.
Dining options include the hotel's poolside Roadhouse Bar & Grill and grill-your-own steaks at the heritage-listed Royal Cricketers Arms Hotel next door. Weekend guests will be drawn to chilli dogs and banana splits at the 1960s-styled diner at the adjacent Skyline Drive In, perhaps after a day at close-by Wet 'n' Wild Sydney.
Howard says the company plans to open Atura hotels in Albury and Bankstown by the end of the year in redeveloped AHL hotels, and is scouting for other Atura sites around Australia.
Atura Blacktown, 32 Cricketers Arms Rd, Prospect, New South Wales, (02) 9421 0000.
