Sydney’s Tank Stream Hotel selected in Egencia’s global
A surge in business travel during 2017 has seen one of Sydney’s newest hotels, The Tank Stream Hotel, named in Egencia’s global Top 100 Preferred Corporate Hotel Awards.
The Tank Stream Hotel was one of only two Australian hotels to make the Top 100, and follows the hotel recording 76.9 percent growth in corporate business in 2017 (compared to 2016), and 51 percent growth in corporate group business.
Egencia is one of the world’s leading corporate travel solutions groups, and their annual Top 100 is selected from Egencia’s global marketplace of over 300,000 hotels. The finalists were selected based on their popularity, pricing, desirable amenities to corporate travellers, customer service and overall guest experience during 2017. All 100 hotels selected earned a 100 percent customer service rating from the 62,000 total travellers they served.
General Manager of the Tank Stream Hotel, Mr Klaus Kinateder, said that it was a great honour for the hotel to be recognised in the Egencia awards, given the hotel had been operating for only just over two years.
“Obviously we have the benefit of a premier location in the heart of the CBD, but the hotel has also built up its business travel profile through providing great services that resonate with corporate travellers such as the unique ‘Go Solo’ program designed specifically for solo women travellers,” said Mr Kinateder.
“Our accommodation is contemporary and very well-priced given our location, and we include extra benefits such as free high-speed WiFi, in-room movies and mini-bar items. Our dining options are well suited for corporate travellers, and the hotel is beginning to attract a strong following from groups wanting space for small meetings, workshops and functions.
“Last year we saw a significant rise in ‘bleisure’ stays from our corporate market, with both interstate and international travellers combining leisure with their business trips, and taking advantage of the hotel’s very convenient location.”
Announcing the Top 100 Preferred Corporate Hotel awards program, Egencia’s VP of Global Supply, Andrew Dyer, said: “We are excited to recognize our elite hotel partners for their outstanding achievements. They have gone above and beyond to ensure guests enjoy their stay, and it’s clear from the flawless customer service ratings they each received that business travellers appreciate their efforts. We know price and inclusions are two key factors business travellers look at when booking a hotel, and these hotels performed well in both of those categories.”
The Tank Stream Hotel was redeveloped out of a former 1960s office and retail building, with additional storeys added to the building creating a stylish 4.5 star 280 room hotel next to Australia Square and within a short walk of the city’s major government and business institutions such as the NSW Parliament, Australian Stock Exchange and Reserve Bank.
The hotel offers a variety of room styles, all offering high-class bedding, work areas, in-room facilities and ensuite bathrooms.
Dining options include the bistro style Le Petit Flot, offering contemporary dining with an emphasis on share plates and local produce cooked with French and pan-Asian influences. The hotel also offers mid-week business lunches at Dave’s Deli, and a private function room is available for small meetings and dinners for up to 40 delegates.
The Tank Stream Hotel is part of the international St Giles Premier Hotel collection, with the Sydney hotel joining St Giles’ hotels in cities such as London, New York, Kuala Lumpur and Manila.
