Ascott expands in Sydney with new hotel in Haymarket


Ascott Australia has added 255 keys to its expanding Sydney accommodation footprint with the opening of Sydney Central in Haymarket.

Sydney Central is located along the thoroughfare of The Goods Line connecting guests to ICC Sydney and Darling Harbour, as well as transport hubs for both rail and light rail.

Sydney Central’s accommodation mix includes standard, superior and executive rooms, in addition to a full-service restaurant and bar, heated rooftop pool, gym and carpark.


Sydney Central also features 12 meeting spaces available cater to events from 10-300 people, including a ballroom.

“Sydney Central marks another exciting chapter of growth for Ascott Australia,” said Ascott Australia managing director David Mansfield.

“We will further capitalise on the dynamic location of Sydney Central by adding a café along The Goods Line, and expand the room count by 72-keys across 8 floors.

“Our refurbishment will also include accessible rooms and family suites before rebranding the property as Citadines Sydney Central.”

The new property follows the opening of Citadines Connect Sydney Airport hotel in 2019 and Citadines Walker North Sydney hotel in 2023.
