The Holiday Inn Sydney Central at the 430 Pitt Street development will comprise 305 rooms, a restaurant, terrace bar and a 120-seat meeting space, according to a media release.

The hotel will be part of a mixed-use development that will have a 17-storey tower with a sloping roof, “green waterfalls”, a 1,000 sqm private art gallery and a retail concourse.

“The property will be a jewel in the Sydney CBD landscape with its unique wedge-shaped design and green flowing rooftops,” said Jing Wen Lin, director at property firm Linzhu.

Karin Sheppard, chief operating officer at IHG added, “The Holiday Inn brand has been a story of success for IHG in Australia, so we are excited to be building on our portfolio that already includes six Holiday Inn hotels in Sydney.”

The first Holiday Inn globally opened its doors in 1952 and today the Holiday Inn Brand Family is the largest hotel brand in the world, with the largest development pipeline, said the media release.

The first property in Australasia was the Holiday Inn City Centre Perth, which opened on March 2, 1998.

IHG currently has 26 hotels operating under four brands in Australia: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
