The Grand Dame of Sydney hotels, The Menzies Sydney just yesterday launched the new look 'Australia Ballroom' in a glitzy affair, after a radical facelift.
Over 200 people including corporate clients and media celebrated the launch in the Ballroom decked out in full glory of event offerings. This included beautiful table set-ups as well as pop-up food stations serving the likes of charcuterie and a create-your-own cheesecake dessert all night. The stand-out was the round bar set up right in the centre of the room and laden with colourful cocktails served all night.
With capacity for up to 500 people, the Ballroom now boasts new carpeting, paintwork, furniture and lighting, but still retaining its historical elegant charm with touches such as chandeliers.
The six-week refurbishment also features the installation of Fairchild's 'SeeMe Now' e-concierge tablet. Event organisers can now easily communicate requirements to the hotel staff with the touch of a button through re-installed requests such as AV equipment, air-conditioning and lights control. In addition, customised messages can also be sent through for other requests.
The Menzies Sydney is the sixth Accor hotel in Sydney to install the 'SeeMe Now' e-concierge tablet.
With 15 flexible functions rooms, The Menzies Sydney can cater for conference and events from 20 up to 500 people, catering to any business needs including exhibitions, product launches and corporate meetings.
Located near Sydney's famous attractions including The Rocks and Opera House, The Menzies Sydney boasts 446 beautifully-appointed guestrooms, two restaurants, four bars, a gymnasium and an indoor heated pool. The hotel overlooks Wynyard Park and is in a prime location with restaurants, boutique shops and theatres surrounding.
