The first of three hotels and a beach bar is set to open next week for Sea Tac Airport passengers.
The hotel is expected to open on the same date as the new airport, at the same time as the city’s new airport terminal.
The new hotel is named Sea Tac and will be operated by the Sea Tac hotel chain.
Sea Tac owner Chris Hinton said the hotel would have around 10 rooms, a lounge and bar.
“It will be a very nice hotel, and I hope we’ll see many more people coming in, and so we’re hoping to get quite a bit of people in,” he said.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming them to our wonderful island of Maroochydore.”
The new airport has also received an upgrade with a new terminal, a large new hotel and a brand new gymnasium.
“There’s going to be a lot of change in the city.
It’s a very exciting time to be in the port of Maroondah,” Mr Hinton added.”
I think the new facility, it will be an exciting place to be for all the people that we’re going to see coming in.”
The fact that we have an airport and a hotel will help the whole tourism industry.
“So that’s a really good thing.”
