Clarion, a division of the Choice Hotels Group, has launched its third Sydney property, and its 16th in Australia, with the opening of Clarion Hotel on the Park at Parramatta.
Formerly the Courtyard by Marriott Parramatta, the rebranded property will be totally refurbished over the next 12 months, with work due to commence in the first quarter of 2011.
Clarion and the Clarion Collection are the prestige brands of the Choice Group, with properties in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Tasmania and North Queensland.
Located at 18-40 Anderson Street, Parramatta, the six-storey Clarion Hotel on the Park has 181 rooms – 150 standard rooms and 30 suites. It also has 11 meeting rooms, covering a total of 371 square metres.
Louise Byrom, newly appointed as General Manager of the Clarion Hotel on the Park Parramatta, said the property would focus on business clientele during the week and leisure visitors from regional NSW or the local community during weekends and holiday periods.
Ms Byrom was previously General Manager at the property when it was part of the Courtyard by Marriott network before transferring to her most recent position as General Manager of the Courtyard by Marriott North Ryde.
