Business tourism to benefit from new hotel: AAA
The accommodation industry is supportive of approval being granted for the establishment of new tourism accommodation infrastructure at Sydney's Darling Harbour, as part of the city's new convention centre precinct.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Accommodation Association of Australia, Richard Munro, says when built, the new hotel will enhance Australia's business tourism offering even further.
"The new hotel is set to be a symbolic exclamation point in the critical redevelopment of what is a major piece of tourism infrastructure," Munro said.
"Once built, the property - which will be one of the largest hotels in Australia by number of rooms (up to 616 rooms) - will be a driving force in increasing the economic benefits of the visitor economy such as long term sustainable employment to NSW and Australia.
"The Accommodation Association supports the construction of the new hotel in conjunction with the revitalisation of the convention centre as both will stimulate demand in this precinct.
"While leisure tourism is important, visitors travelling for business purposes – notably to attend meetings and conventions – are a mainstay for accommodation businesses."
