Housed in a 35-floor tower on Little Lonsdale Street, the 483-room property is home to three restaurants and bars restaurants helmed by executive chef Michael Smith – Goldie Canteen + Brews and Pretty Boy Italian Steakhouse, as well as Floyd’s bar.
The opening comes as inbound tourism continues to grow, with tourism from international visitors set to increase by 75 percent before the end of the next decade.
Occupying levels 20-35, Novotel Melbourne Central offers 213 five-star rooms and suites, while ibis Melbourne Central features 270 premium economy guest rooms on levels 4-18.
“This is a significant, first of its kind dual-branded hotel development for Melbourne and AccorHotels,” said general manager Michelle Bradshaw. “Our central location and two levels of midscale and premium economy accommodation means that there is an option for all travellers to have a 5-star sleep at affordable prices.”
