EVT Hotels and Resorts announce Tank Stream Hotel rebranded in mid-2024.


EVT Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce that the Tank Stream Hotel, located on Pitt Street in Sydney's CBD, will be rebranded as Rydges Australia Square in mid-2024 following a staged refurbishment over the next 9 months to minimise guest disruption. Until this time, the hotel will be managed by EVT Hotels & Resorts as the Tank Stream Hotel, under the Independent Collection by EVT.

Centrally located in the heart of the Sydney CBD, directly adjacent to Australia Square and just minutes from the Sydney Opera House, the planned refurbishment will encompass guest rooms, Ground Floor and Level 1 as well as food and beverage areas. 

Norman Arundel, EVT Director of Hotels and Resorts, said: “We are thrilled to be undertaking an exciting new partnership with IGB Berhad. The Tank Stream is currently the perfectly positioned Sydney CBD hotel, and when the refurbishment is complete the property will be a great addition to the Rydges portfolio of hotels and resorts. The Rydges brand continues to expand with this property becoming the 45th in the portfolio across Australia and New Zealand. 

Tan Boon Lee, CEO of IGB Berhad, said: "We are pleased to partner with EVT in taking over the operation of the Tank Stream Hotel. We are also delighted to have a hotel under the Rydges brand by next year, which enjoys such a strong presence in Australia. We believe EVT’s experience, local agility and track record of market leading results will bring significant value to the future success of the property." 

EVT’s Rebecca Hamey has been appointed General Manager of the Tank Stream Hotel. Rebecca has more than 15 years’ industry experience, most recently as General Manager of QT Bondi, and is looking forward to overseeing the renovation of the property. 

“It is hard to beat the location of the hotel, and I am looking forward to working with the team to transform the property and to bring the refreshingly local service that Rydges is famous for to our guests,” Rebecca said. 

EVT looks forward to applying its extensive local expertise across food and beverage, conference and events, marketing, distribution and revenue services, to deliver exceptional results for IGB Berhad.
