Minor Hotel Group has just announced the introduction of the NH Collection brand into the Australian market, with a newbuild Sydney CBD property set to rise on Wentworth Street. The introduction of the NH Collection to Australia marks the brand’s first expansion into the Asia Pacific region, with the majority of its 80-strong portfolio located in Europe and Latin America, with others scattered in North America and the Middle East.
The upper-upscale branded hotel will feature 254 hotel rooms, a fitness centre, meeting and conference facilities, speciality restaurant and lobby bar.
Rahul Parrab, partner and Asia Pacific head of the firm’s Hospitality & Leisure group, advised Minor Hotels on the project:
“We were privileged to assist Minor Hotels on this project and to help bring the NH Collection brand to Australia. This is a great development for the group and it showcases the growth of exciting and engaging brands in the region. Once built, the NH Collection hotel will be a destination for business and leisure travel and for food and beverage enjoyment in Sydney.”
The team worked alongside the very capable and experienced commercial and in-house legal team at Minor Hotels to help bring the legal documentation to a successful close.
