Pan Pacific Hotels Group today announced plans for a multi-million dollar extension of PARKROYAL Parramatta in Sydney.

Costing $25 million, the development will commence in March and make PARKROYAL Parramatta the largest hotel in Parramatta – boasting 286 guestrooms – by June 2016.

The 15-month project will involve the construction of a new seven-storey tower with a club lounge, as well as 40 club rooms and 50 premium rooms that offer views of the Parramatta skyline and incorporate the use of the latest technology and innovation.

The addition of four meeting rooms will bring the hotel’s total number of conference and meeting spaces to 12 – making it the largest meetings and events hotel in the area.

As part of the renovations, the hotel’s BAR:30 restaurant and bar will be extended out to Phillip Street to introduce an alfresco dining element that captures the vibrant ‘eat street’ atmosphere that Parramatta offers.

“The development of PARKROYAL Parramatta is in line with our strategy to grow our brands in key destinations across Asia Pacific,” Pan Pacific Hotles Group  area general manager, Craig Bond said.

“The multi-million dollar investment also highlights PARKROYAL’s contribution to Parramatta City Council’s Economic Development Strategy.”

With Parramatta City set for an $8 billion building investment over the next five years, the city’s skyline will be dramatically reshaped by more than 32 new residential, commercial and key public features and Parramatta could potentially overtake Adelaide in coming years to become the nation’s fifth largest Central Business District.
