Greater Western Sydney is about to get a taste of luxury as IHG Hotels & Resorts brings its InterContinental brand to Parramatta, in partnership with Holdmark.

Scheduled to open in 2025, the new-build InterContinental Parramatta will be part of a vibrant mixed-use development that also includes offices and a ground-floor retail precinct. The building itself will be one of the most architecturally striking high-rises to grace the city’s skyline, with Holdmark partnering with Scott Carver to design it.

The state-of-the-art hotel will deliver on IHG’s signature InterContinental Life concept and feature 200 guestrooms, a restaurant and rooftop bar, Club Lounge, pool, gym, wellness centre and more than 900sqm of meeting space.

This hotel will deliver more than 360 direct and 1000 indirect jobs for Western Sydney and play a critical role in the post-COVID growth and revitalisation of Sydney’s West. Furthermore, the development will create an additional 1000 construction and sub-contractor roles boosting job opportunities and the local Western Sydney economy.

The hotel will be located directly opposite Parramatta Square, one of the largest urban renewal projects in Australia and is perfectly positioned to cater to those in town for business or leisure.
