8Hotels began in 2003 by leasing a 14 room hotel in Sydney's Darlinghurst and by 2013 had grown into a market leading boutique hotel management company with a collection of 21 hotels and over 1200 rooms located throughout Australia and abroad.
In 2014 & 2015 8Hotels successfully completed a company transformative divestment strategy of selling some core hotel assets and terminating agreements on non core hotels. This further strengthened the 8Hotels balance sheet to embark on a new phase of growth through development, ownership and management of key hotel assets via our fully integrated operating platform. This platform includes Architecture & Design, Finance, Human Resources & Training, Distribution & Revenue Management, Information Technology and Food & Beverage.
Currently, new hotels are being developed in Haymarket, Surry Hills, Pyrmont, & Sydney Airport.
