It's a New Year and a New Look for the Melbourne Marriott Hotel

Melbourne Luxury Hotel Completes $12M Renovation Project

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2012) - From the windows and details in every room to "green" improvements throughout, the Melbourne Marriott Hotel has turned over a new leaf. After a monumental $12 million (AUD), one-year renovation effort, the luxury hotel's new look is ready for prime-time with the completion of the final stage -- the hotel's new façade.

Already highly regarded amongst business hotels in Melbourne City Center, the Melbourne Marriott Hotel's improvements take the property to the next level of comfort and include: all guest rooms and suites, the hotel's Executive Lounge, gymnasium, the external windows and the most recently completed brand-new $2 million façade.

"The upgraded product will further cement our reputation as a premier boutique property for both corporate and leisure travellers. The refurbishment is well timed to capture the current upswing in corporate travel," said hotel General Manager George Varughese. "Our guests will benefit from improved technology and a higher level of comfort. A great result all round and wonderful way to start the New Year."

The renovated property boasts an urbane and sophisticated design from leading interior design firm CHADA, as well as a series of state-of-the-art technological offerings. In-room improvements include 42" flat screen LG High Definition TVs and iPod docking stations in each room, as well as high speed wireless internet throughout. The improvements also provide the most contemporary, comfortable accommodations among any meeting facilities in Melbourne. The hotel is also one of the top five-star properties in Melbourne for conferences, accommodating up to 250 guests.

Boutique in size yet grand in style, the Melbourne Marriott offers the perfect welcome. Also known as one of the most popular Melbourne wedding reception venues, the Melbourne Marriott is conveniently located in the heart of the city. The winner of the 2009 Victorian Tourism Award for Luxury Accommodation, the Melbourne Marriott Hotel also puts guests just steps from the shopping delights of Bourke and Collins Street, the cultural and culinary delights of Chinatown, and conveniently close to the historic Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition Building. For sports enthusiasts, this hotel in Melbourne is a short walk from the MCG and Rod Laver Arena and only a seven-minute tram ride to the Etihad Stadium.

Guests can also take advantage of the hotel's indoor/outdoor heated pool, complimentary in-room coffee and tea, an expert concierge to help coordinate activities and events, plus a full array of additional services, from limousine service to an expansive Melbourne boardroom, unmatched at any other hotels in Melbourne City Center.
