A deal struck between Accor and Lewis Land Group will deliver a new-build Mercure hotel to Sydney’s Hills district.
The new Rouse Hill hotel, designed by Architect Mostaghim & Associates, will house 78 guest rooms, seven family and four disability rooms across the four-story hotel which sits roughly 45 kilometres from Sydney CBD.
Self-described as Australia’s oldest private property developer, Lewis Land Group was founded by Bernard Lewis in 1957, and has since developed more than 20,000 residential lots.
Accor’s Simon McGrath said the development is a strategic move for the Group that will boost the economic growth of Sydney’s North West.
“Development in Sydney’s west is gaining momentum and the opening of a new international-quality midscale hotel will positively contribute to the economic and tourism growth of the area through job creation and services,” McGrath said.
The latest Mercure hotel is being developed alongside The Fiddler Hotel, which underwent a major redevelopment in 2010.
The hotel is currently under construction with an opening scheduled for July this year.
Mercure Sydney Rouse Hill will a house a fitness centre, swimming pool, new conferencing and events spaces, with dining venues to be provided through The Fiddler’s existing entertainment complex.
The Mercure brand has more than 50 hotels across Australia and New Zealand, and more than 800 worldwide.
