SKYE Suites Sydney Wins Best Tech Hotel at HM Awards
SKYE Suites Sydney has taken the top gong for Best Technology Hotel at the HM Awards in Sydney on Friday night, with SKYE Suites Parramatta earning a Highly Commended for Best Serviced Apartment Property.
The stunning serviced apartment hotel at 300 Kent St Sydney is a luxe and inviting enclave in the heart of the city, setting new benchmarks in technological innovation, design and personalised five-star service.
Crown Group General Manager of Hotels, Benjamin Nesbitt, said the hotel’s stellar team and its excellent offering had seen it run at well over 80% occupancy since opening its doors in October 2018.
“Our intention is to make the SKYE experience as easy and enjoyable as possible for our guests,” he said. “From the outset, we decided paperless and cashless was the way to go and the response from our guests and the team has been fantastic. Our guests love how easy it is to check in using our curated SKYE Suites Sydney App offering Mobile Keyless Entry. From there, our guests can order items to their room using our Virtual Concierge via iPad, which is linked to every team member’s personal iPod for efficient service and so no request ever slips through the cracks. The Simple Pay portal and cloud-based operating platforms make check-outs a lot faster, easier, and more secure.
“Our technological innovations extend to music and transport too. Guests can curate song-lists to play throughout the hotel via Mustard Music’s Secret DJ platform, whether they’re in the lobby, swimming in the pool or working out in our gym. We also have two brand new BMW convertibles for use via GoGet car share.
“Guests can catch a movie or watch Netflix by streaming their own shows and content to huge in-room TV screens via Google Chromecast and Honeybadger Technologies.”
