The Ascott Limited (Ascott), has launched the brand-new Citadines Connect Sydney Airport, a chic business hotel perfect for frequent travellers passing through the bustling gateway city.
A refreshingly sophisticated take on an airport hotel, the property turns the concept on its head. Upon arrival, guests travel straight to the property’s Penthouse, the gateway to all 150 guest rooms and a vantage point from which visitors will likely spend much of their leisure time.
With a retro design of bright pastels, patterned floors, neon signs and artwork adorned walls, the Penthouse immediately transports guests back to the golden age of air travel, a vibrant period of glamour and indulgence. Fitted with a chic cocktail bar, guests can spend happy hour perched up above, gazing down at the airport’s busy runways below.
The creative vision behind Citadines Connect Sydney Airport comes courtesy of architects Fox Johnston and interior designer Cressida Kennedy who put style, convenience and guest experience at the forefront of the hotel’s design.
Contrasting the hotel’s nostalgic homage to 60’s décor are its modern amenities which accommodate the needs of the contemporary traveller, frequently on short-stay business trips, on lay-over passing through, or looking for affordable and well-connected accommodation with direct access to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport and Sydney CBD.
The rooms available range from economy to first-class and offer views of the runway or Sydney’s city lights with each featuring home comforts to unwind, alongside a touch of luxury: deluxe bedding, a 55-inch TV with Netflix, complimentary Wi-Fi, rainfall shower and blackout curtains.
Designed with the business traveller in mind, Citadines Connect has ensured those needing to put in some work hours are catered for with a business centre, meeting facilities, plenty of USB and charging stations, and a 24-hour Grab & Go food shop offering hot and cold meals for guests short on time.
Guests looking to truly elevate their experience can venture past the Penthouse to the heated rooftop where they’ll find Sydney’s only hotel rooftop cinema. Snuggle up on a cold winter’s night and take advantage of this unique offering regardless of the weather.
Located in Mascot, the property is a 15-minute walk or 2-minute drive to Sydney Airport’s domestic terminal, and a 10- minute drive to the international terminal. Sydney’s CBD is also located a 15-minute drive or train ride away.
Citadines Connect Sydney Airport will be an unexpected oasis for travellers constantly on the go where they can relax and recharge while staying connected.
A sub-brand of Ascott’s well-established Citadines brand, Citadines Connect is a line of business hotels with selected services to cater to frequent travellers who are constantly connected, offering a chic living experience in vibrant city destinations. Ascott has launched Citadines Connect to widen its short-stay offerings as it continues to grow its portfolio.
