Marriott International will be marking the return of its W brand to Australia, with the opening of its second property in Melbourne this December, following a delay of its original June launch.
Forming the centerpiece of Cbus Property’s A$1.25 billion (US$816 million) Collins Arch mixed-use precinct, W Melbourne is touted as the city’s first luxury lifestyle hotel with a “rebellious luxury” edge.
Located at 408 Flinders Lane, W Melbourne will feature 294 guest rooms, including 29 suites. Hotel facilities include four F&B outlets, starring a Japanese fine dining restaurant, an all-day dining venue, as well as two bars including a hybrid café-meets-wine-bar.
Other amenities include a fitness facility, a gold-roof adorned indoor pool with poolside bar and DJ booth, as well as 830m2 of conference, meeting and event space, including a 426m2 pillarless ballroom.
