Accor’s midscale Novotel brand has emerged in Melbourne with the opening of Novotel Melbourne Preston, following an extensive refurbishment and rebrand of an existing property.
Event organisers will find 16 function spaces within the property standing on Bell Street at Preston, all of which have been refreshed and renovated with new carpets, curtains, reupholstered chairs and an AV upgrade.
Rising seven levels, the hotel comprises 383 guestrooms, suites and fully self-contained studio apartments, some of which offer views of the Dandenong. All rooms also feature modern technology and facilities including a Smart TV, multiple USB hubs, workspace, in-room safe and minibar on demand.
Meanwhile, the ground floor of the hotel has been activated with the addition of two new reception spaces, a new grab and go Stampton & Co café, as well as an assortment of seating arrangements and furniture, offering guests a range of options from a quick set down, lounge area, co-working and informal meeting spaces, plus large meeting tables with integrated power.
The hotel is also home to a new onsite restaurant, The Stampton, which opened in April 2022, serving an all-day dining menu.
