New build tower in Melbourne to mark St. Regis brand’s entry to Australia
The new-build hotel is slated to open in 2022 and will be located in the heart of Melbourne.
“Melbourne’s vibrant mix of world-class dining, art galleries and rich history makes it an ideal destination for the debut of the iconic St. Regis brand in Australia,” said Lisa Holladay, global brand leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts.
“We are delighted to be working with Century Group Aus to open The St. Regis Melbourne and offer our guests impeccable service and exquisite experiences in Australia.”
Located in the luxury mixed-use precinct Flinders Bank on the corner of Spencer and Flinders Streets, the new St. Regis Melbourne will offer 168 rooms across levels 2 to 11.
“This signing is an indication of the investment community’s confidence in the Australian hotel market, where we are seeing a growing demand for premium lodgings,” said Richard Crawford, senior director, hotel development, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific at Marriott International.
“The St. Regis Melbourne will be an outstanding addition to our strong and growing footprint in the region, where we are on track to boast the largest portfolio of upper upscale and luxury hotels and resorts, with two-thirds of the new supply pipeline.”
