Bob East, the Chief Executive Office of Mantra Group, said that they are excited about the launch of the Mantra brand to Albury. He said that a great number of people visit the city because of its strategic location at the midpoint between Sydney and Melbourne and an impressive calendar filled with major events. So, a luxury hotel like the Mantra Albury Hotel has all the potential to become the first choice for the region’s premier corporate, meetings, and leisure activities.
Albury is a key regional commercial and tourism hub in New South Wales. A standard hotel in such a region is meant for success. Mr East said that the latest announcement about the hotel in Albury would be a great addition to their wide portfolio of properties in various regions across Australia, Hawaii, Indonesia, and New Zealand.
