Melbourne welcomes W Hotel
W Hotels Worldwide, now part of Marriott International, announced it expects to open W Melbourne in 2020.
W Melbourne will be located in the heart of the city’s trendy shopping and entertainment district, at 447 Collins Street. Part of the $1 billion AUD mixed-use luxury development Collins Arch., W Melbourne will fuse the brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever® service and innovative programming with Melbourne’s hip and historic setting. The expansion into Melbourne marks the second W Hotel coming to Australia, following W Brisbane which is scheduled to open its doors in 2018.
Offering 294 spacious guestrooms, including 40 suites and an Extreme Wow Suite (the brand’s take on the traditional Presidential Suite), W Melbourne will be designed by award-winning SHoP Architects from New York, global design practice Woods Bagot and interior design specialists Hachem. The hotel will feature a vibrant bar and restaurant, an AWAY spa, FIT state-of-the-art workout facility, and WET indoor heated swimming pool.
