The historic Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne is well underway in the planning stages of a restoration and refurbishment program as part of a multi-million dollar re-branding initiative announced by Rendezvous Hospitality Group (RHG) earlier this month.
Upon completion, Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne will be renamed Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne.
The restoration and refurbishment of Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne has been four years in development, with appropriate research, study and consideration undertaken to incorporate and preserve the heritage and features of the iconic building
The refurbishment will help rejuvenate the historic 1900’s building and include a range of modern facilities for discerning travellers for both business and leisure yet preserving the historic charm, intricate heritage detailing and interiors that showcase the quintessential personality of the historic Hotel.
Alexander Billing, Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne general manager said the refurbishment of Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne will restore the Hotel to its original glory, without loss of character or its boutique ambience.
“The design aspect will not only highlight the iconic heritage of the building, but improve the overall level of guest comfort, satisfaction and experience in a superb established location,” said Billing.
“The Hotel will remain open during the entire process and we expect there will be minimal disturbance or inconvenience to our guests.”
The refurbishment will help Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne distinguish itself through design, image, technology, amenities and brand identity
The extensive upgrade program will incorporate the accommodation rooms and suites, food and beverage facilities and conference and meeting facilities.
Earlier this month, RHG announced a multi-million dollar rebranding initiative uniting Rendezvous Hotels and Marque Hotels into one Rendezvous brand.
The refurbishment of Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne is to be completed by mid 2012, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the original heritage building.
