After Brisbane, Melbourne poised to get a W hotel too
New York, February 7, 2017

W Hotels Worldwide, now a subsidiary of Marriott International, is slated to open W Melbourne in 2020, developed in partnership with Daisho Development Melbourne and Cbus Property.


W Melbourne will be located in the heart of the city’s trendy shopping and entertainment district, 447 Collins Street, as part of the A$1 billion (US$ 767 million) mixed-use luxury development Collins Arch. 



The brand’s expansion into Melbourne marks the second W Hotel coming to Australia, following W Brisbane scheduled to open its doors in 2018.


With 294 guestrooms, including 40 suites and an Extreme Wow Suite (the brand’s take on the traditional presidential suite), W Melbourne will be designed by New York's SHoP Architects, global design practice Woods Bagot and interior design specialists Hachem.


The new hotel will also feature nearly 1,208m2 of conference, ballroom and meeting space.


W Hotels is on track to reach 75 hotels by 2020, and soon-to-open properties include W Panama, W Shanghai and W Tel Aviv.
