Marriott International’s The Luxury Collection makes its Australian debut with The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart, expected to open at the end of the year.

The Tasman takes its place fronting Murray Street, forming part of Parliament Square, a new centre for Hobart. It is located just steps away from the popular Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the bustling waterfront locale of Sullivan’s Cove.

Event planners can book one of seven meeting rooms spanning 770sqm, the largest of which can hold 500 pax theatre-style.

Amenities include a fitness centre, and three F&B options: Italian food at Peppina, modern Australian at Deco Lounge, and bar Mary Mary.

The Heritage Bedroom reflects the pioneering past of Hobart alongside contemporary culture.

Architectural finesse takes pride of place at The Tasman, offering guests three eras of design within the 152-room property. It blends the site’s historical legacy with a modern vision; from the history-filled hallways of the original 1840s heritage building and the luxury of Art Deco influences to the modern glass-ensconced Pavillion building.

Its opening in Hobart underscores the significance of Tasmania as a global destination for luxury travellers. The Luxury Collection began in Europe in 1906 and represents fine properties in more than 30 countries and territories. Each hotel and resort is unique to its destination and represents the individualistic charm of the property.

The Tasman will be led by General Manager, Stephen Morahan.
