appointmentsSydney Sydney’s Veriu Broadway Hotel has announced Patrick O’Meley as Hotel Manager, ahead of its June 2017 opening. The new city fringe hotel development is part of a pipeline of five hotels set to open under the Veriu brand by the end of 2018. Coinciding with the Veriu Broadway opening, the rebrand of two properties in Camperdown (28 rooms) and Randwick (35 rooms) will take place following their extensive refurbishment. Further openings for 2018 are scheduled for Sydney Central (110) and Pyrmont (36 rooms). The much anticipated 144-room new build hotel at Green Square in partnership with property fund managers, Folkstone, is also slated for early 2019. Veriu Broadway will open its doors to the first guests on 2 June 2017. An $18 million conversion of a former warehouse space, it will offer 64 self-contained studios – each over 40 square metres; and one and two bedroom split level apartments. Ideally located close to the International Convention Centre, the hotel will provide a true and genuine local experience with team members trained as local area guides, plus on-site food & beverage sourced from local providers in keeping with the precinct’s contemporary café and bar offerings. Announcing the appointment of O’Meley, Shanker Chandra, Group General Manager of Veriu Hotels and Suites said:“Patrick is an excellent choice to lead the hotel and execute our brand service culture. An essential part of staying with Veriu is supported by the local knowledge of our team members and ensuring a bespoke experience in line with our guests needs, and Patrick’s exemplary guest service experience will ensure this is core to our service delivery.” O’Meley most recently worked at luxury five-star hotels Palazzo Versace and QT on the Gold Coast, have previously been engaged with other luxury brands including Qualia Resort on Hamilton Island, The Sebel Pier One and The Star Hotel & Apartments.
