Exciting buzz from Sydney, where the former Observatory Hotel has formally become The Langham, Sydney. The opening is expected to be the first step in a city-wide expansion for the brand.

Located near Sydney’s historical Rocks district and the Central Business District, the hotel is also close to the harbor and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

Pivoting Back to Travel: Phase 4

Are you prepared to guide your clients through the “new normal” of travel? Join us December 15, 2020 from 1pm-2:20pm EST for Pivoting Back to Travel: Phase 4. The upcoming installment of our FREE virtual series will feature presentations from the Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, and Seabourn on their most up-to-date travel procedures, health & safety protocols they’ve implemented to keep guests safe, activities that are open to visitors, what your clients need to know while on their trip and more! Visit www.pivotingbacktotravel to view the full agenda and register for your FREE pass.

While all of the rooms sound lovely, we're especially intrigued by the Observatory Suite (pictured), which has a hand-carved four-poster bed, a full kitchen (no need to dine out!) and a guest bathroom.

Sonia Lefevre, who has worked for 15 years as a sales and marketing specialist for international luxury hotels, will be the general manager of the property. Prior to joining The Langham Sydney, Lefevre was the hotel manager of The Langham, Hong Kong for two years.

The hotel is located at 89-113 Kent Street, Sydney. For more information, visit
