Metro Hotel Sydney Central, Metro Hospitality Group’s flagship property on the corner of Pitt and Campbell Streets in the heart of Sydney, will complete a two year refurbishment this month that has seen a complete upgrade of its rooms, pool, restaurant terrace and guest lifts.

The completion of the refurbishment means the hotel now offers 220 Superior and Deluxe rooms, with its former Standard rooms phased out. The higher standard of guest accommodation is expected to further strengthen the hotel’s appeal with the overseas tourism market. The hotel currently receives 30 percent of its business from international guests through overseas wholesalers and inbound operators.

The first stage of the refurbishment, completed in 2012, saw accommodation of four of the hotel’s 10 floors and the rooftop pool area receive an extensive makeover, followed by the revitalisation of the guest lifts and restaurant terrace. The final stage, finished this month, has seen the remaining six floors of accommodation upgraded. The hotel is now 100 percent smoke free.

Metro Hotel Sydney Central General Manager Sandra Calabretta said the end of the extensive renovations will mark an exciting time for the hotel as it will allow it to fully maximise its potential with both the domestic and international markets.

“It is wonderful to know we can now offer all our guests a superior standard of accommodation while still ensuring our rooms at priced at an affordable point,” Ms Calabretta said. “We are confident our new accommodation offering along with the hotel’s central location in the heart of Sydney’s entertainment precinct will be a major drawcard for international visitors.

“We have received very positive feedback from guests on the changes made, and now can concentrate on what we do best, offering our guests superior accommodation and facilities matched by outstanding customer service.”

Metro Hotel Sydney Central is situated directly opposite the Capitol Theatre and is a short walk from Sydney’s major attractions, including Chinatown, Paddy’s Market, Cockle Bay, the Queen Victoria Building and the popular King Street Wharf.
