Dining and Dreaming With a Marriott Deal in Melbourne

Enjoy Gourmet Indulgence With Two Courses and Luxurious Accommodations

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Melbourne's Central Business District (CBD) is more than the heart of the city's commercial interests -- the modern skyline of the financial district contrasts with well-preserved Victorian architecture, and the alley ways and arcades that snake through the city give it charm and character. It's also home to many Melbourne five-star hotels and some of the city's finest restaurants, including Essence at the Melbourne Marriott, specialising in local seasonal produce featuring contemporary Australian cuisine.

And now, the Melbourne Marriott Hotel and Essence are proud to offer guests an exciting way to get a taste of the city -- and local cuisine -- with the Gourmet Indulgence Dining Package. Hotel guests will enjoy dining, Melbourne CBD, and luxurious accommodations starting at $369 AUD per night*. This delicious package, valid through January 15, 2011, includes accommodations, full buffet breakfast for two in Essence, two-course dinner for two in Essence, valet parking, access to the swimming pool, spa, and gym, as well as complimentary sparkling wine on arrival.
