Sydney Gets Trendier With New Unlisted Collection Hotel
Here's Sydney's hottest new hotel...in a few years
Sydney is sure on the radar for hot new hotels and it continues with the recent announcement of a new Unlisted Collection property planning to bring the unique design of lawyer-turned hotelier, Loh Lik Peng.
Located in the inner-suburb of Ultimo, down a laneway that evokes inner-city grittiness and history all at the same time. The new hotel will be housed in the former administration building for Carlton and United Brewery and will undoubtedly be the destination for memorable hotel experiences.
Mr. Loh promises that the 60-room hotel will be a bit more grown-up and on the same lines as his own, Waterhouse at South Bund in Shanghai and Town Hall Hotel & Apartments in London. This can only mean that the floating beds might not be a feature as they are in the New Majestic Hotel.
While the area is known to be a backpackers paradise, we can't be too sure how a boutique hotel will fly. With plenty of hostels and inexpensive hotels within blocks of the property, the success of this place can go either way; an absolute hit or an absolute bomb. After saying, "profits are not the chief motive in developing hotels", Mr. Loh should be happy with any outcome.
Watch this space as new details come to fruition and the building begins to take shape.
