Marriott Hotels has opened the Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands, part of the retail, leisure, and entertainment precinct, The District Docklands on Waterfront Way.
For networking events and gala dinners, the five-star property offers 372m2 across three event spaces, where the largest available room is the 245m2 Promenade, good for 120 pax banquet-style.
Bleisure guests will also be able to make use of the first M Club executive lounge in Australia, designed to emulate a residential-style living room. It is open 24 hours, and is open to Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador Elite Marriott Bonvoy members and guests who stay on executive floors, offering complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments, and evening cocktails. The adjoining outdoor terrace offers an al fresco space for guests to take a breather if needed.
Meanwhile, all of the property’s 189 rooms all come decked out with regular mod-cons such as a 55-inch LCD TV, a walk-in-shower, work surface, and a curated â€˜Made in Melbourneâ€™ bar fridge.
Recreational facilities include a gym, as well as a heated rooftop infinity pool that is open all year-round and offers panoramic views across Melbourneâ€™s CBD skyline, Bolte Bridge, Port Phillip Bay, and Hobsons Bay.
Aside from the bar â€“ named Sunset House â€“ adjoining the infinity pool, other F&B options include Archer’s, a restaurant serving Australian cuisine with fresh produce from local farms; Ada’s, the hotel lobby bar; Corsia, a laneway-inspired cafe with a European-inspired menu of light meals.
