LOCAY – Sydney’s newest boutique accommodation concept
Turning the hotel industry on its head, LOCAY (which stands for “local vacation”), is the newest boutique accommodation concept to hit Sydney. Occupying the middle ground somewhere between Airbnb and a hotel, LOCAY combines the best of both worlds and more.
That’s because LOCAY accommodation is so much more than just a roof over your head, it’s a whole experience. Quirky, stylish design, luxurious touches, along with a friendly personalised service, make every stay unique.
So why is LOCAY becoming so popular?
Flexibility – accommodation that suits you
Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or planning a longer stay for business, there are room options to suit every type of trip and budget. From basic single or twin rooms right through to deluxe suites, you will find the right accommodation to fit your needs. Plus with preferential rates for long term bookings, on-site or residential parking, LOCAY is a great option for corporate clients, students, families and solo travellers.
Location – more than a hotel
LOCAY currently has properties in Randwick, Potts Point and Bondi, and continues to expand its offering of unique handpicked accommodation. Located in vibrant neighbourhoods full of character and charm, they are situated a little away from Sydney’s more obvious tourist spots, yet still conveniently close enough to the city and public transport. And thanks to partnerships with local businesses, guests receive exclusive discounts and special offers to get out and explore their local area.
Different – authentic hospitality and affordable luxury
Beautifully designed and well-appointed rooms with thoughtful extras, such as deluxe linen and botanical amenities, add a touch of luxury to this premium accommodation without the price tag. Shared kitchenette facilities allow guests the freedom to cater for themselves, and most properties either have their own laundry facilities or a launderette close by. Daily housekeeping and friendly, helpful staff on-site every day ensure guests have all that they need. Plus there are rewards and discounts for loyalty members, as well as preferential rates for long stays. Guests can be sure to find the same high standard of service across every LOCAY property
All LOCAY properties adhere to NSW Government COVID-19 protocols, including hygiene measures, contact tracing and guest screening. Housekeeping staff use commercial-grade cleaning products and implement zero contamination cleaning practices. During these uncertain times, guests have the reassurance of a safe and secure stay.
