An existing property near Bondi Beach will undergo an extensive refurbishment of its rooms, lobby and guest spaces after joining IHG’s Holiday Inn brand family.

One of the world’s most prolific hotel brands has secured an attractively located site in the capital of New South Wales.

The property, previously known as Quest Bondi Junction, will now undergo an extensive renovation programme encompassing its rooms, lobby and guest spaces renovation in line with the IHG brand’s next-generation design. After the work is completed, the 82-room scheme will feature a bright lobby, a complimentary gym and an appealing all-day dining restaurant.

We are thrilled to extend our reach across Sydney and complement our stable of hotels in the Eastern Suburbs, which already includes Double Bay, Coogee and Potts Point.

“We are proud to partner with La Vie Hotels & Resorts for the first time, and thank them for their commitment to the future of the tourism industry, particularly in New South Wales. We look forward to working closely with them as they refresh the hotel and showcase the best of the Holiday Inn brand.”

Jerry Xu, founder and chief executive officer, La Vie Hotels & Resorts, added: “La Vie Hotels & Resorts is currently on a significant expansion phase across Australia and South-East Asia, and we see this new property in Bondi Junction as just the beginning of a long-term partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts. We currently have 22 properties in our portfolio ranging from midscale to upper-upscale, and to be adding IHG’s renowned Holiday Inn brand to our stable of hotels is very exciting.”

An all-suite offering

As one of Holiday Inn’s all-suite properties, every room comes with a kitchenette, enabling guests to cater for themselves if required.

The hotel is located at the heart of Bondi Junction on Spring Street. From here, guests can easily reach the Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centre and the iconic Bondi Beach, while. business travellers are just 5 km away from Sydney’s Central Business District.
