Mantra on Kent unveils million dollar make over

Mantra on Kent, Sydney unveiled its $1.5million hotel refurbishment which includes a floor-to-ceiling transformation of their 105 guest rooms, restaurant, meeting facilities, lobby and more.  The hotel’s Studios and spacious One and Two Bedroom Apartments have received a major makeover which includes stylish new furniture, wide screen televisions, revamped laundries, new carpet and a fresh coat of paint to complement the upgrades. 

Guests can also take advantage of Mantra on Kent’s central location and great rates for the upcoming Sydney Festival, which showcases the world’s best performing and visual arts at multiple locations around the city, on 5-27 January.

These enhancements, combined with the hotel’s desirable Sydney city location close to Darling Harbour, the Star City Casino and the Convention and Entertainment Centres, reinforces Mantra on Kent as an ideal choice for business and leisure travellers.  Refurbished Boardroom style meeting facilities are also available on site.

“Mantra on Kent’s comprehensive refurbishment underscores our commitment to attracting an even larger segment of meetings and corporate business in this vibrant city,” said Mantra Group CEO Bob East.

Mantra on Kent’s makeover is part of Mantra’s ongoing commitment to enhance CBD hotels. A $20million investment in refurbishments across Mantra’s 21 CBD properties commenced in July 2011 and is part of a two year investment to upgrade city hotel product. 


To date, this includes a $7million refurbishment across Melbourne properties Mantra on the Park, Mantra 100 Exhibition, Mantra on Russell and Mantra on Little Bourke; Brisbane’s Mantra on Queen; Mantra on the Esplanade in Darwin; and fellow Sydney hotel Mantra Parramatta.

“Our city hotels are predominantly frequented by business travellers who will benefit from the refreshed product now on offer but leisure travellers visiting for city events will also enjoy the new look hotels,” said Mr East.

There are 51 Mantra Hotels, Resorts and Apartments around Australia in all capital cities and key holiday destinations including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Tropical North Queensland and the NSW North Coast.
