Tank Stream Hotel to rebrand to Rydges Australia Square


Sydney’s Tank Stream Hotel will be re-branded as Rydges Australia Square in mid-2024 following an agreement which sees the hotel now operating under EVT Hotels and Resorts management.

Initially placed as part of the Independent Collection by EVT, the property will undergo a staged refurbishment over the next nine months to minimise guest disruption before assuming the Rydges branding.

The planned refurbishment will encompass guest rooms, ground floor and Level 1 as well as food and beverage areas.

Norman Arundel, EVT’s director of hotels and resorts, welcomed the new partnership with IGB Berhad.

“The Tank Stream is currently the perfectly positioned Sydney CBD hotel, and when the refurbishment is complete the property will be a great addition to the Rydges portfolio of hotels and resorts,” he said.

EVT’s Rebecca Hamey has been appointed as the hotel’s general manager.

“It is hard to beat the location of the hotel, and I am looking forward to working with the team to transform the property and to bring the refreshingly local service that Rydges is famous for to our guests,” Hamey said.
