Scheduled to open by 2020, W Melbourne will be located in the heart of the city's trendy shopping and entertainment district. The hotel will be housed in Collins Arch, a mixed-use development which is comprised of two towers that contain office, retail and commercial space, and are linked at the top by a residential bridge.
The new hotel will have 294 guestrooms, including 40 suites and an Extreme Wow Suite (the brand's take on the traditional Presidential Suite). There will also be a bar and restaurant, a spa, work-out facilities, and a heated indoor swimming pool.
The hotel will also cater to those looking for a trendy location for their next event or meeting thanks to nearly 13,000 square feet of modern conference, ballroom and meeting spaces.
Guests will be able to access W Melbourne from multiple entry points across William Street, Market Street and Collins Street, with the Living Room (the brand's take on the staid hotel lobby) and port cochère located on Flinders Lane.
The Melbourne property will become the brand's second in Australia when it follows the W Brisbane, which is scheduled to open its doors next year.
