Novotel and ibis Melbourne Central Hotel opening in December
Scheduled for December 2018 – 483 Rooms
One of Melbourne’s most anticipated hotel openings, the new 483-room Novotel and ibis Melbourne Central on Little Lonsdale Street, is now taking bookings for stays from 1st December 2018.
Towering above its prime location on Little Lonsdale Street, AccorHotels leading midscale and economy hotel brands will come together in the one property to offer travellers to Australia’s culture capital easy access to major dining, shopping and sporting precincts.
Featuring 483 guestrooms, the 35-floor tower is AccorHotels Australia’s first vertical new-build multi hotel development where two brands will share guest facilities. Ibis Melbourne Central will comprise the lower tier of the tower and make up 270 premium-economy guest rooms, whilst Novotel will open from level 20 with 213, light filled, contemporary 4.5-star guest rooms and suites.
Food and beverage is inspired by the city’s rich ethnic history, with Pretty Boy Italian Steak House giving a tongue and cheek flair to home cooked Victorian produce, along with Floyd’s Italian inspired spritz and salumi bar. For dumpling lovers, Goldie Asian Canteen + Brews will steam the stomachs of guests and locals alike and will be open from dawn to dark.
With Little Lonsdale Street emerging as a culinary centre point of Melbourne, the hotel’s dining venues at 399 Little Lonsdale Street will not only add to the foodie culture but embrace what the area once was.
Complex General Manager, Michelle Bradshaw said, “We’re so excited to be opening a purpose-built dual branded, vertical hotel complex, taking the midscale and premium-economy hotel sector to the next level, providing a fresh, vibrant and accessible destination to all travellers. The hotels will offer the latest in-room technology, exciting food, delivered by the best culinary talent in Melbourne.”
