Goodnight, Moon: Observatory Hotel Sold by Orient Express
June 26, 2012By: Christopher Roney

It wasn't long ago that we wrote about the Observatory Hotel and lauded its prime location, by the Observatory Park and not far from the Sydney Opera House, and great service and amenities. Current owners Orient Express are saying goodbye to the property while they finalize the sale of the property and transitioning the hotel to Langham Hospitality Group, owners of great hotels like the Langham London and closer by Langham Melbourne. The transaction is expected to close on August 8th. A continued relationship with Orient Express just wasn't in the stars for Observatory, but guests have no reason to worry that the transition should disrupt their upcoming stays. If anything, with new ownership comes the desire to make a great first impression, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Langham plan a few things for their newest acquisition. We'll have to keep our telescopes trained on the Observatory Hotel for any sign of a new vision for the hotel's future.
