The new Novotel Melbourne South Wharf has opened its doors to guests.
Upon arrival hotel guests enter the Ground Floor lobby off Convention Centre Place at a junction where the Carpark, Pedestrian Link (to Fishermans Bend), and Melbourne Exhibition Hall meet, and a central hub for the precinct. Traversing through the Ground Floor Lobby, patrons are then elevated up to a naturally illuminated Sky Lobby Reception on Level 5 which acts as a focal point into the Hotel Tower, Restaurant and Bar, Gym, Business Lounge and Café.
Guest room and suite interiors have a natural and timeless base palette. The bespoke joinery throughout all of the rooms has been carefully considered and planned to create a home for everything. The rooms have generous built in luggage racks, study spaces with task lighting, mini bars with additional storage. All the components are detailed to aesthetically sit seamlessly together, with a soft palette of natural timber contrasted with stronger architectural black metal accents.
Each bathroom features a custom formed basin with the same architectural metal accents carrying through into the vanity and illuminated mirror design. Walk-in showers feature a slate grey herringbone tile. All hotel rooms encompass Novotel brand identifiers including the global Live N’ Dream bedding and Fair trade bathroom amenities.
The hotel is owned by Action Hotels Group and operated and managed by AccorHotels’. Developed by Flagship Property Holdings and project managed by Premier Capital Developments, designed by NH Architecture, Woods Bagot Architecture and with interiors by Fender Katsalidis the hotel is the most visually stunning aspect of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre Stage 2 Exhibition Expansion. The 95m high towers contrasting charcoal and gold facade is striking, with the Eastern facade wrapped in a gold curtain wall system of metal and glass and the gold is continued onto the new Exhibition Expansion roof.
