Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney Illuminates With Message Of Support During Pandemic


Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney is standing tall with the community by illuminating its façade with a heartfelt message. Throughout May, the words “LOVE SYD” shine brightly from the hotel’s exterior as a sign of hope and support for frontline workers and its community.


“We brainstormed ways we could send a message of care and solidarity that we are all in this together, and thought our unique location on the harbor was an ideal way to do so,” said Philippe Kronberg, general manager of Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney.


Positioned at the highest point in The Rocks, the hotel’s façade can be seen throughout the city and across the harbor. Using environmentally-friendly LED light bulbs, the hotel’s engineering team selected 104 rooms and suites across 36 levels to create the tribute.


From all of us at Shangri-La Group, thank you to essential workers throughout Sydney who are working hard to keep the community safe.
