Scheduled to open in 2018, the new hotel will be located in re-purposed heritage buildings in Parliament Square.
The Luxury Collection Hotel’s 128 guest rooms and suites will be redesigned by Sydney-based hospitality interior design firm, JPDC. The building will retain its original windows, floor boards and fireplaces, and the hotel’s corridors will showcase exclusive pieces from local artists. There will also be an upscale restaurant, lobby lounge, and whiskey bar on-site.
This hotel will take residency in an assortment of heritage buildings, including the Georgian-style St. Mary’s Hospital originally constructed in 1847. Located in Parliament Square, the hotel will be located directly behind Hobart’s historic Parliament House and near local institutions including Salamanca Market and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).
The new hotel’s location at Parliament Square takes in addresses on both Murray and Davey St.
