Australia and New Zealand’s largest hotel operator, Accor, announces its continued expansion across Australia, with the signing of two new Sydney hotels with Sachin Sabharwal.

The partnership sees the opening of BreakFree on Broadway Sydney and Mantra Castle Hill Sydney – two hotels ideally located for business and leisure travellers alike.

Owner Sachin Sabharwal said: “Being in the hospitality industry for over 15 years, I have always wanted to partner with a global brand like Accor and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for us together.”

Accor Pacific CEO, Sarah Derry, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Sachin Sabharwal and unveil two new hotels in Sydney. These properties bring new opportunities for our communities and guests.”

“Sachin Sabharwal shares our passion for hospitality and our partnership will realise strong commercial benefits for the hotels through Accor’s powerful distribution engine and award-winning lifestyle loyalty program, ALL – Accor Live Limitless, along with significant extended benefits created by Accor’s major strategic partnerships with Accor Stadium, Qudos Bank Arena, and Qantas Frequent Flyers.”

BreakFree on Broadway Sydney features 47 refurbished guestrooms and is perfectly placed in the heart of Sydney to explore all of the city’s major attractions, including just a 15 minute walk to Darling Harbour and Chinatown and a short stroll to The University of Sydney and Broadway Shopping Centre.
