The first 5-star hotel arrives in Parramatta with the opening of SKYE Hotel Suites

  • SKYE Hotel Suites Parramatta opened on August 1, 2017 
  • This unique ‘vertical village’ is already a beacon of luxury for Western Sydney
  • SKYE Hotel Suites moves Crown Group into the luxury hotels arena

SKYE Hotel Suites Parramatta opened its doors on August 1, bringing unrivalled urban luxury to Sydney’s West. The highly-anticipated opening sees Crown Group lead the charge into Parramatta’s 5-star hotel market, elevating the suburb into Sydney’s second CBD. 

Committed to the ultimate in guest luxury, SKYE Hotel Suites comprises 72 apartment-style suites with the finest bespoke furnishings and fittings. Each features L’Occitane toiletries, inroom dining from a modern on-site restaurant, pre-stockable maxi-bar, the unique ability to choose your own mattress firmness on each side of the bed, keyless entry and ‘virtual concierge’ tablets to enable access to all hotel services from each suite. 

Amenities to delight even the most seasoned business traveller or the most demanding holidaymaker include a state-of-the-art gymnasium, pool, sundeck, spa, sauna and new restaurant, Husk & Vine Kitchen and Bar, which opened at lobby level on July 1 to rave reviews. 

When breaking ground for the development, Crown Group discovered archaeological remains integral to Parramatta’s historical and cultural past, including an 1840s house, an underlying convict hut, wheelwright’s workshop and the cellar of the Wheat Sheaf Hotel, which were preserved for public display and have inspired Husk & Vine’s unique wheat and wine concept. 

Drawing on the rich cultural influences that surround the area, the kitchen’s heart revolves around a custom Beech oven that will produce flatbreads and pides made from stoneground grains, large cuts of meat and whole birds for guests to share. 

This menu, by renowned chef Stephen Seckold, matched to a list of boutique local and global wines, will ensure Husk & Vine is Parramatta’s next local institution, with very approachable breakfast and lunch offerings, and an evening experience equally suited to business, family or group drinking and dining. 

Adding to Crown Group’s already extensive portfolio of luxury residential property, SKYE Hotel Suites sits within V by Crown Group’s twin residential towers, creating a world-class ‘vertical village’ to rival those in emerging Asian and European design capitals.

The building itself is an architectural centrepiece for Parramatta, achieved by twin visionaries Allen Jack + Cottier and Koichi Takada Architects. Located less than 300 metres from Parramatta Square and a short walk from Parramatta’s train station and ferry wharf, SKYE Hotel Suites is surrounded by high-end retail and cultural experiences. 

Commenting on Crown Group’s move into the luxury hotels arena, Chairman & Group Chief Executive Officer Iwan Sunito noted, “Parramatta is a powerhouse for innovation and business and SKYE Hotel Suites will be a stand-out, luxury addition to Sydney’s up-and-coming West.” 

“Appealing to a new generation of domestic and international visitors to the city, SKYE Hotel Suites is designed to create a fresh lifestyle standard delivering superior apartment-sized suites for discerning travellers. 

It will also set the benchmark for future SKYE Hotels Suites openings in Sydney’s CBD in 2018 and Green Square in 2019.” 

Wayne Taranto, SKYE Hotels Suites Director of Hotels, adds, “We have had strong demand since opening on August 1st, even taking some walk-ins, as well as better than projected function inquiries. 

There are also huge occupancy spikes around major upcoming events like the Bledisloe Cup, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran concerts. As the first five-star hotel in Parramatta, we are thrilled to see our anticipated demand become a reality.”
