SYDNEY— Hilton Sydney has recently unveiled a completely restyled executive lounge as part of a $7million upgrade to the Hilton guestrooms and executive lounge. The renovation is part of a three-year, $3 billion plan of significant property renovations currently underway across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide.
The new lounge has been increased by 60 percent and now seats up to 120 guests with the introduction of communal and private alcoves and redesigned boardroom, allowing the lounge to accommodate its guests in absolute comfort.
The use of two communal tables has been introduced into the space to encourage interaction. The lounge’s boardroom has been increased and seats up to 12 guests and features built-in audio-visual. The boardroom can be reserved for meetings or broken down into smaller tables for dining. It can also function as an entertainment room to watch sporting events or conduct presentations and teleconferences.
The buffet in the lounge was also expanded to make it easier for the guests to access the dishes. The lounges menus have been altered to create a mix of cuisines from Spanish antipasti to Japanese and fresh seafood to suit all palates. Guests choosing to stay in the executive rooms, relaxation rooms, and suites have access to the restyled executive lounge, serving continental breakfast, all day refreshments, and evening drinks and canapés.
Designed by Australian architect Mark Landini the lounge’s minimalist design has maximised the use of natural light and worked with bursts of color. Raw materials including exposed concrete, glass, and timber have been used to create an urban feel.
