THE STAR REVEALS NEW NAME AND MANAGER FOR GOLD COAST HOTELS

THE STAR Gold Coast has revealed new names for its two Broadbeach towers, now weeks out from the opening of its new hotel.

As a nod to its Sydney-based sister property, the tower currently under construction will be known as The Darling, while the existing hotel will take the name The Star Grand.

John Autelitano (pictured) has also joined The Star Gold Coast team as general manager of hotels to oversee both properties.

Boasting more than 20 years' experience, Autelitano has previously working with global brands across Asia Pacific, the Carribbean and the United States.

Most recently he led The Star Sydney's portfolio as general manager of hotels where he helped secure the brand's international reputation, according to Star Entertainment Group managing director Geoff Hogg.

"John was instrumental in The Darling at The Star Sydney receiving its Forbes five-star rating," said Hogg.

"We are delighted to have him join us on the Coast and leverage his expertise in delivering a premium product which will in turn become a major driver in attracting vital tourism and economic benefits for the Gold Coast and Queensland more generally."

The Star Gold Coast has released a series of concept images of its new property which is due to open before Christmas, including the first look at its suites.

The Darling will feature 57 luxury suites ranging from 70 to 328 square metres in size, complete with butler service and other finer amenities.

Autelitano says The Darling was designed as a standalone hotel with its own experience and personality, and he looks forward to building the same standard the group has achieved in Sydney.

"Properties awarded five stars from Forbes are considered the best hotels in the world and are synonymous with flawless service and facilities," he said.

"By adopting the same moniker here on the Gold Coast, guests can be assured they will receive an impeccable level of luxury accommodation and service when they visit The Darling at The Star Gold Coast."
