by | 11 Nov 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Accor has signed an agreement with Panthers Group for a new five-star Pullman hotel at rugby club Penrith Panthers’ precinct in western Sydney.

The upper upscale 153-room Pullman Sydney Penrith hotel forms part of Panthers Group’s transformation of the precinct to create a state-of-the-art business and entertainment destination.

Slated to open in Q4 2023, the hotel is adjoined to the new 1,250 sq m Western Sydney Conference Centre (WSCC), which itself remains on track to open in the same quarter, and will host a range of onsite facilities, including a restaurant and bar with private dining rooms, along with a ground-floor café.

Pullman Sydney Penrith will service the WSCC, which will host trade shows, exhibitions, seated functions for up to 1,000 people, along with other major events.

Superb facilities

Accor Pacific CEO, Sarah Derry, said: “We are thrilled to partner with the Panthers Group to deliver Pullman Sydney Penrith. Western Sydney is widely renowned as the engine room of Sydney and we are incredibly proud of our thriving hotels and incredible teams here.

“Pullman Sydney Penrith will offer leisure and business travellers memorable guest experiences and superb facilities and, once open, this hotel will quickly become the leading accommodation choice in Penrith. Sport plays a crucial role in Australian culture and, by tourism and sporting organisations working together, our guests have the ability to enjoy incredible experiences and service.”

Event and tourism destination

Panthers Group CEO, Brian Fletcher, added: “Pullman Sydney Penrith will be a welcome addition to Western Sydney’s tourism offering and builds upon the existing and upcoming new amenities within the Panthers precinct and the wider Penrith locale. It is part of our ongoing commitment to deliver world-class facilities to the local community. This development will enhance Penrith’s reputation as a world-class event and tourism destination.”

Premium brand Pullman has 18 hotels and resorts in key metropolitan and leisure destinations across Australia, with more in the pipeline including the 200-key Pullman Trinity Point Resort, heading to Lake Macquarie.
