Singapore-based Park Hotel Group has inked a management deal with Roxy-Pacific Holdings to open Park Hotel Melbourne in 2022.
The 23-storey Park Hotel Melbourne will feature 319 guest rooms and suites, a lobby lounge, a concept restaurant and bar with alfresco terrace seating on the eighth floor as well as a fitness centre.
The new-build will offer five versatile function rooms that can be combined into a ballroom to accommodate meetings and events ranging from 20 to 200 persons.
Facilities include a bar in the lobby with a flavour of the laneway culture of Melbourne, and hotel interiors will take inspiration from Kirk’s Bazaar, a horse and livery trading centre in the mid-1800s in the area.
Located on the main thoroughfare of Little Bourke Street, Park Hotel Melbourne sits near lifestyle, arts and entertainment and dining options in the vicinity. Shopping centres such as Emporium Melbourne and Bourke Street Mall are a few minutes’ walk from the hotel.
Allen Law, CEO of Park Hotel Group, expressed optimism in the group’s latest location, given the “strong fundamentals and increased demands in the domestic and international visitor markets” in Melbourne, where saw over 80 per cent hotel occupancy in 2018.
