8Hotels Expands Sydney Collection with Iconic Boutique Hotel

8Hotels today announced it has entered into a long-term operating agreement for the 30-suite Regents Court Hotel in Potts Point, Sydney.

8Hotels Australia’s largest boutique hotel operator 8Hotels was chosen by the new owners to reinvigorate the hotel and the Regents Court brand with the mission to reclaim its title as Sydney’s preeminent boutique residence hotel.

8Hotels CEO Paul Fischmann commented; “As a service focused hotel management company, the opportunity to manage Regents Court and to re-engage its great history and rebuild its former reputation is a dream assignment. The magnificent building and residential amenity creates a truly unique accommodation experience and we look forward to welcoming guests for both overnight and longer term stays.”

Regents Court is superbly located in the heart of Potts Point where guests can enjoy stunning views of the city skyline and harbour from the roof top garden. This eclectic and cosmopolitan neighbourhood is home to many of Sydney’s finest cafés, restaurants and boutiques and is just a stone’s throw to Kings Cross nightlife and central to the CBD, Woolloomooloo and Darlinghurst.

This brings to 15, the number of properties managed by 8Hotels and is the sixth Sydney-based property in the collection.


About Regents Court

Originally built as gentlemen's chambers in 1926, the establishment was converted into a 30-room boutique hotel in 1990 by the MacMahon family. Well ahead of their time, they focused on enhancing the original character of the building and evoking the sense of being in an inner city apartment rather than a hotel suite. For almost twenty years, Regents Court was more home than hotel, to many guests from all walks of life all over the world. It was a fusion of old and new, each studio with muted colours, modern furniture classics, and artwork from many artists who stayed over the years including Tracey Moffatt, Barbie Kjar, John Wolseley and Allan Kaprow.
