Melbourne will add a new luxury hotel to its offering when Shadow Play by Peppers opens in April 2019.
AccorHotels has revealed a sneak peek into the hotel, which will be located in Southbank and within walking distance to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Designed by Melbourne architects Elenberg Fraser and Melbourne design firm Hecker Guthrie, the hotel features one- and two-bedroom apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies.
AccorHotels chief operating officer Pacific Simon McGrath said Shadow Play by Peppers will meet the demand for luxury accommodation in Melbourne.
“We’re excited visitors to Southbank will soon be able to experience Peppers’ unique style and acclaimed hospitality,” he said.
“Southbank is in need of a sophisticated luxury hotel product to cater to an increasingly selective global market that is looking for quality, location and facilities of a world-class calibre.
“This opening also represents a strong indication of our continued focus on the introduction of the luxury Peppers brand to key CBD markets.”
The hotel will feature a number of guest spaces, including Edwin Wine Bar & Cellar, an enclosed garden space on the 46th floor, two private dining rooms and a guest lounge and library.
Shadow Play by Peppers is Peppers’ second hotel in Melbourne following Peppers Docklands, which opened in January 2016.
