Quarantined guests treated to live music performances at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth has hosted a private concert for its 400 in-house quarantine guests.

A potentially drab 14-day stay was given the Sofitel treatment on Wednesday, with guests at the brand’s Sydney CBD property enjoying a live performance from three acts and a delightful French meal.

The guests, who are completing their two weeks of mandatory self-isolation, heard from Sydney RNB cover band Soul Nights, singer-songwriter Johnny Diesel, and DJ Troy T from Sound Agents.

Capping it off, the evening performance was paired with a Sofitel French meal of niçoise salad (entree), basque style braised chicken (main), and crème caramel (dessert).

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth general manager Sam Panetta said: “We are doing everything we can to ensure our guests have a comfortable and pleasant stay with us, despite being confined to their rooms.

“Seeing our guests singing and dancing to the music from their balconies was a sight to behold.

“Our team remain focused on providing a great guest service. After all, taking care of others is at the very heart of what we do every day.”

According to Sofitel, 55 guests were able to celebrate the completion of their mandatory isolation with the concert on Wednesday.

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth is one of several Accor properties playing an essential role in the federal government’s directive to house incoming international arrivals for a mandatory 14-day quarantine period, before they go back into the community.

To date, Accor’s Sydney hotels alone have cared for more than 2,500 quarantine guests.
