The Hyatt Regency Sydney unveiled the result of a $250 million redevelopment at an event on Thursday 1 December 2016 which included: a cocktail reception at their Maritime Ballroom; and an outdoor light projection video on the wall of their 2,800 square metre building.
Hyatt Regency Sydney is Australia’s largest upscale hotel that has just undergone a redevelopment to include a brand new 24 storey tower, additional premium rooms, a lavish rooftop bar, state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces and a new Regency Club Lounge. It is a five star hotel that caters for business, leisure and event travellers. It is located at the doorstep of both the city’s business and entertainment districts.
Guests were welcomed into the Maritime Ballroom and got to sample food created by a host of fine dining chefs and wine selected by expert sommeliers from four live food demonstrations. The food and wine included: Sydney Rock, Coffin Bay and Pacific Bay oysters served with three dressings and paired with NV Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut from France; handmade gnocchi with truffle and sage basil paired with 2013 Yering Station pinot noir from the Yarra Valley; seared venison fillet paired with 2014 Grant Burge Miamba shiraz from the Barossa Valley; and Harvey Bay scallops paired with 2015 Yering Station Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley.
Guests were also treated to two Hyatt Regency Sydney signature cocktails created by mixologist Grant Collins, who will also be overseeing the opening of the Rooftop Bar later this month. The cocktails included: the Lemongrass and Lillet Spritz (made from Lillet Rose, grapefruit bitters, lemongrass syrup, Villa Jolanda prosecco and soda water); and the Scrumpy Cider Apple Gimlet (made from apple infused Tanqueray gin, apple cider syrup, Apple Thief cider and cold pressed apple juice).
Speeches were made by MC Matt De Groot and General Manager Malcolm Zancanaro who revealed that guests were going on an inside-out tour of the hotel that included a harbour cruise.
At this cruise, guests were surprised further with a spectacular outdoor video that was projected onto the enormous 2,800sqm harbourside wall of the freshly rebranded hotel. Guests watched the journey of two business and leisure travellers through the Hyatt Regency Sydney. It was projected onto the building using 16 projectors and a total of 28,348,800 pixels.
The rooftop bar, the brand new 24 storey tower, along with the exclusive Regency Club Lounge is due to open at the end of December 2016.
The Hyatt Regency Sydney is located at 161 Sussex Street Sydney NSW 2000.
