Phase one of multi-million dollar refurbishment complete
As part of the refurbishment, all 402 guestrooms have been completely transformed, with walk-in wardrobes and workstations for the City View rooms and bathtubs, walk-in showers, and new bedding and furniture for the Luxury suites.
David Mansfield, area general manager for InterContinental Hotel Group for Melbourne and Canberra, said the renovation is the first step in a new chapter for the hotel. “Few properties in Melbourne have a history as rich as Crowne Plaza Melbourne and the standard to which all of the hotel’s guestrooms have been refurbished is outstanding,” he said.
“The property is absolute riverfront and is in a premium position – close to Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre, the CBD and on the doorstep to Melbourne’s tram network. With Phase 1 of the refurbishment now complete, together with the hotel owners SB&G Group, we are excited by the appeal the new rooms will have for business, long-stay and leisure travellers and we look forward to welcoming them”.
Phase two of the hotel’s refurbishment will begin in the second quarter of 2019 and will see all of the hotel’s public areas redesigned, including updates to the hotel’s conference and event facilities, a new restaurant and bar concept, and updates to the hotel pool, gymnasium and lobby.
