On the way to becoming Australia’s largest hotel operator, Meriton Serviced Apartments Mascot has opened its doors as the newest all-suite hotel at Sydney Airport today.
Expanding its collection of first class Serviced Apartments across Australia, Meriton on Jackson Drive at Mascot features 386 self-contained suites and direct train links to both the domestic and international terminals, only 1 and 2 stops away respectively.
“We are excited to open our doors and offer a five-star apartment hotel near Sydney Airport,” said Matthew Thomas, General Manager of Meriton Serviced Apartments and Director of Meriton Group. “Mascot is an integral part of our brand’s development and expansion. It’s the first of four new full-service, all-suite apartment hotels we are opening this year. No other hotel chain can design, build, furnish, open and successfully operate like we do. We do it all in-house, with a fantastic team of dedicated hospitality professionals.”
Now open as the first hotel in the area to have a fully operational Arrivals Lounge for the early, red-eye flights, Meriton Serviced Apartments Mascot positions travellers in the perfect location for the next take-off or landing.
Thomas said, “Our guests at Mascot will enjoy a new level of hotel comfort and space. Before departure, on arrival and whenever in the local area on business or leisure. The arrival lounge and free Wi-Fi for all throughout the hotel comes standard.”
Every suite has its own full kitchen including a coffee machine with complimentary coffee pods as well as a selection of four different teas. Also unique to Meriton is the fact that each suite has a full sized laundry with a washer and clothes dryer.
Set above the recently opened Mascot Central Retail Precinct, this new hotel will have easy access to an onsite Woolworths Supermarket, BWS bottle shop, Priceline Pharmacy, Coffee Club as well as an array of trendy restaurants and cafes.
Tailored to the frequent flyer, Meriton also offers ‘Park, Sleep and Fly’ packages, where guests of the hotel can leave their car at the property while away. Included in the package are return shuttle bus transfers to either terminal, a service available to all guests.
“Sydney Airport, the country’s busiest, sees over 39 million passengers a year pass through it,” Thomas said. “Many of those demand quality accommodation in the immediate area to facilitate their travel needs. Meriton Serviced Apartments Mascot will meet those demands, adding 386 suites to the local accommodation market.”
Plane spotters can take comfort in the hotel’s premium Aero Suites, which parade views of the terminal tarmacs or make the most of the exclusive outdoor garden and roof top observation deck. Guests can stay connected with friends and family or stay on top of their work through complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel or log on at the built-in Internet hub, fitted with Apple iMacs and business facilities.
Launching an exclusive range of METIS skin and haircare bathroom amenities, guests will feel pampered when they stay. The hotel also presents a fully-equipped 24-hour gymnasium and resort style, indoor lap pool, spa and steam room for added comfort.
Thomas said, “Our brand is leading the industry in social media engagement and outperforming larger international brands on popular review sites. All our hotels are often number 1 on TripAdvisor in their respective areas. I’m sure that our new Mascot hotel will be no exception moving to number one in just a few weeks’ time. We are looking forward to opening next month a new Southport hotel and a second Parramatta hotel, both being the tallest and newest buildings in each city. Followed in October by North Sydney, which will offer stunning Harbour view apartment-hotel accommodation north of the bridge.”
