The striking new-build Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport (features 136 modern studio rooms) opened its doors by New South Wales Minister for Tourism and Major Events, the Honourable Adam Marshall MP, to help serve the 42 million passengers who travel through Sydney Airport each year, as well the thousands of visitors and staff who visit the airport precinct daily.
The new 136-room property provides much-needed hotel capacity to support the growth of aviation and tourism in the Sydney basin.
The eight-storey landmark building is the newest hotel at Sydney Airport and Sydney’s third on-airport hotel.
Sydney Airport Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kerrie Mather said “the opening of the new hotel so close to terminals would further improve the customer experience for airport visitors”.
“We’re delighted to celebrate the opening of this fantastic hotel, providing even more value and choice for our customers – whether they want a convenient place to stay close to the airport or an easy commute to the CBD,” said Ms Mather.
“Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport helps meet the need for additional hotel accommodation as we continue to experience strong passenger growth.”
NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall congratulated Mantra Group on today’s hotel opening and their commitment and contribution to the State’s multi-billion dollar tourism economy.
“With record numbers flying into Sydney, new hotel openings such as the Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport provide visitors to NSW with greater choices in accommodation location, style and price point,” said Mr Marshall.
New hotels in key precincts play a critical role in promoting a vibrant visitor economy while meeting the needs of growing visitor numbers to Sydney, attracting first-time and returning domestic and international travellers.
It will also be convenient to people living in rural and regional areas who are often after a nearby quality hotel to stopover for a night before having to fly out again the next day.
Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is ideally suited for business and leisure travellers looking for conveniently-located accommodation close to the airport and terminals, while still only being 8km from the CBD of Sydney.
It has an integrated reception and lobby with a 24/7 atmosphere and service, express check-out, internet kiosk and relaxed dining with a bold provincial menu of the finest regional NSW beef and sustainably-sourced local seafood, served with local draught beer, wines and handcrafted cocktails.
Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is located at 3 Ross Smith Avenue, just a short distance from Sydney Airport’s T2 and T3 domestic terminals.
