SYDNEY - SKYE Suites is fast-tracking the opening of its third hotel within the iconic $575 million architectural precinct, Infinity by Crown Group, due to a surge in demand from the long-stay market.

The new hotel, SKYE Suites Green Square, is located in Zetland, a suburb of Sydney, 4 km south of the CBD. It was originally set to open as a hotel in July, but from last week, it now offers serviced-apartment stays of 3 months or more to long-stay residents.

The new locale was designed by world-renowned Koichi Takada Architects and was named one of "The World's Best Projects" by The Property Council of Australia. The rooms have plush and inviting interiors by the designers behind some of the world's stellar luxury hotels, CHADA.

All three properties offer a range of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. The kitchens have SMEG cooktops, microwave ovens and a fridge, and there is a washing machine and dryer as well as ample bathroom and living space. They also have an enclosed balcony or courtyard and second wall-mounted flat-screen TV in the two-bedroom apartments.

Keyless entry and 'virtual concierge' tablets in each suite allow guests to access hotel services, and there is an option for mobile check-in for a contact-less check-in and stay.

Crown Group CEO, Mr Pierre Abrahamse, said: "This is the most exciting opening of 2020. Residents and guests will have the opportunity to stay in Sydney's most iconic new architectural creation, created by world-renowned Koichi Takada Architects. They will have all of Sydney on their doorstep, with the city and airport only minutes away.

"What's more, these are the perfect locales to enjoy a luxurious and comfortable stay that feels just like home, but with the luxury touches of a hotel. Guests can do all their own cooking and washing, order home delivery from nearby restaurants, and enjoy their own entertainment on huge flat-screen TVs, just as they would at home. They literally don't need to step out the door to enjoy a nice lifestyle."

The SKYE Suites brand first launched in August 2017 with the opening of the SKYE Suites Parramatta, part of a mixed-use residential, retail and hotel development, V by Crown Group. It also has conference rooms with remote video conferencing set-up.

The second SKYE Suites opened in October 2018 as part of the iconic Arc by Crown Group residential tower at 300 Kent St. It has 73 hotel apartments.
