Melbourne will be getting its own slice of Parisian flair when Marriott International brings its Le Méridien brand to the CBD.
Slated to open by 2020, Le Méridien Melbourne will be located inside a converted 12-storey building, just a stone’s throw from Parliament Square, and will closely resemble the rest of the brand’s European mid-century style, with 235 rooms on offer.
A variety of event spaces will be on offer for groups, including a 210sqm function space, with three breakout rooms; a 90-seat all-day dining restaurant and two bars adjacent to the hotel lobby.
Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Marriott International, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, said: “Melbourne is known as one of Australia’s most European-style cities, especially with its art, culture and food attractions. As a Parisian-born brand focused on unlocking a destination, Le Méridien is the perfect fit for the city and the hotel is set to become a landmark for cultural-focused travellers visiting Melbourne.”
The announcement of Le Méridien Melbourne follows the news that AccorHotels its new luxe MGallery by Sofitel brand to the city, with the $130 million Chadstone Hotel Melbourne scheduled to open in 2019.
