Located on Little Lonsdale Street, the dual-branded property brings together AccorHotels’ midscale and economy brands to offer 483 rooms in total plus meeting and event spaces.
Ibis Melbourne Central will comprise the lower tier of the 35-floor tower and will feature 270 premium-economy rooms, while Novotel will start at level 20 with 213 4.5-star rooms and suites.
Three meeting spaces are on offer to cater for up to 50 guests, while social functions of up to 100 guests can be hosted across five spaces.
The property will offer a range of dining and bar options, including Pretty Boy Italian Steak House, along with Floyd’s Italian-inspired spritz and salumi bar and dumpling bar Goldie Asian Canteen + Brews.
“We’re so excited to be opening a purpose-built dual branded, vertical hotel complex, taking the midscale and premium-economy hotel sector to the next level, providing a fresh, vibrant and accessible destination to all travellers,” says complex general manager Michelle Bradshaw.
“The hotels will offer the latest in-room technology, exciting food, delivered by the best culinary talent in Melbourne.”
