Crystalbrook Sydney hotel
THE Crystalbrook Collection of Hotels and Resorts has announced the acquisition of boutique hotel Little Albion, in Sydney’s Surry Hills.
Little Albion ( pictured) was designed and developed by Paul Fischmann, Founder and CEO of 8Hotels, and opened in Jul.
It offers 35 rooms housed in a heritage building which was originally constructed in 1903 as a school convent.
The property features a rooftop garden and a bar with top shelf beverages and nibbles.
Crystalbrook Chief Executive Mark Davie said the company had been looking to add a Sydney location for some time.
“We could not have asked for a better fit in such an exceptional location,” he said.
The company says it is in a period of “great development”, as it plans to expand with a number of new properties across “key Australian destinations”.
“This is an exciting time for Crystalbrook Collection as we look to grow our portfolio across Australia,” Davie said.
Little Albion will begin trading under the Crystalbrook Collection banner in early Dec.
The hotel group is also undertaking a range of projects in North Queensland, including the development of four properties in Cairns ( TD 12 Dec 2017) along with a major $100 million upgrade of The Reef Marina in Port Douglas ( TD 27 Sep 2017).
