Marriott International has announced the signing of two new properties: Courtyard by Marriott Sydney, Auburn and Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Blacktown.
In an agreement with Sydney-based property developer T1 Constructions, the properties are slated to open in 2023 and 2024 respectively, and marks the planned expansion of the Courtyard by Marriott and Four Points by Sheraton brands in Australia.
“These latest signings reflect Marriott International’s strong commitment to the travel and tourism industry here in Australia,” Marriott International’s senior director of hotel development for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, Richard Crawford, said in a statement.
“During these unprecedented times, our ongoing goal remains to grow our business and to strengthen our offering in this region.
“With these signings in Auburn and Blacktown, we are doing just that, and strategically expanding our footprint into growth corridors outside Australia’s metropolitan areas.”
Courtyard by Marriott Sydney, Auburn is planned to be located at 93 St Hilliers Road in Auburn, and will offer 203 well-appointed guestrooms.
The property will be close to the Parramatta River, Sydney Olympic Park and at the gateway to southwest Sydney sights, including the Royal National Park and the beaches of the South Coast.
Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Blacktown is planned to be located at 17-21 First Avenue in Blacktown, and will include 206 comfortable guestrooms.
The property will provide access to downtown Blacktown and to attractions including the Blue Mountains, the new Sydney Zoo, Raging Waters Sydney water park and to the soon-to-open Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
“Auburn and Blacktown are rapidly growing communities, with a range of demand drivers for visitor accommodation,” Crawford said.
“Marriott International is therefore pleased to collaborate with T1 Constructions to deliver what will be outstanding developments as we move into this exciting new phase of our expansion.”
