RYDGES has unveiled plans to open a $50m hotel with a rooftop bar and viewing deck at Gold Coast Airport in 2019.
The four-star hotel will include 192 rooms and suites spread across seven storeys, along with a restaurant, resort-style swimming pool and function, conference and meeting facilities.
The hotel will trade as Rydges Gold Coast Airport and be developed and managed by the newly-created entity, Gold Coast Airport Hotel, which is wholly owned by Trepang Services.
Gold Coast Airport ceo Chris Mills has declared the hotel as a “game changer” for the airport and the southern Gold Coast.
“The hotel is an important part of the airport’s broader property strategy and we expect it will stimulate interest in a number of other exciting projects being considered for the precinct.”
Gold Coast Airport Hotel md John Robinson said he was “completely comfortable investing $50m in this project”.
“An airport hotel provides comfort to the travelling public that they will arrive at the terminal in time for their flights,” Robinson said.
