Adge Hotel and Residences in Sydney’s Surry Hills has opened a second hotel tower on the site, expanding its room count by 149 guest rooms to a total of 254.

Operated by La Vie Hotels and Resorts, Adge Hotel and Residences opened last August on the site of the former Cambridge Hotel.

La Vie reports that the hotel has exceeded occupancy targets since opening, regularly selling out during key events.

“Driving returns for owners through operational efficiencies is a primary focus for our group and we are all thrilled with the success of Adge Hotel and Residence and excited for this next chapter with the additional tower now open”, said La Vie Hotels and Resorts Chief Executive Officer, Jerry Xu.

“We understand that today’s travellers want more than just a place to rest and Adge has been a great example of how we’ve been able to deliver a fun, vibrant and sociable place for locals, interstate and international travellers to stay.

“Travellers are looking for hotels with personality, flair and a unique point of difference that creates a truly one-of-a-kind stay close to city hubs, and we’re thrilled with what we’ve been able to achieve with Adge, with the support of our trusted owners. These added 149 rooms, which carry so much history, will be a welcome addition to the city.”

A design collaboration between Tzannes Architects and Team 2 Architects, with interiors designed by SJB, Adge Hotel and Residences’ AU$65 million transformation brings together fashion, music, art and culture. The hotel caters to both long and short stay guets and features bold carpets, pod-style bathrooms, Smeg fridges and Nespresso machines.

“We’ve loved reconnecting with our guests from the days of the Cambridge Hotel given the essence of Adge lies in our friendly and dynamic staff, who embody the ‘Dare to be Different’ ethos which drives us to continuously ensure each guest encounter is exceptional,” said Adge Hotel and Residences General Manager, Paul Cundy.

“The feedback from our guests has been nothing short of great.

“Adding 149 extra rooms to our inventory means we can better cater to demand surges over busy event periods, which will only add to the colour and life that keeps this hotel buzzing.”
