AC HOTEL FOR MELB
MARRIOTT International will introduce the AC Hotels by Marriott brand to Australia in 2020, following the signing of an agreement with Melbourne-based property development company Capital Alliance.
The 200-room AC Hotel by Marriott Melbourne Southbank will be located in a 40-storey mixed use building called Normanby.
It will feature a 24-hour fitness centre, pool, three food and beverage outlets and 150m2 of meetings and events space, along with a range of collaborative areas such as the AC Lounge, a co-working space for gatherings by day and a “social hub” offering Europeanstyle tapas by night.
“The AC Melbourne Southbank underscores the growing demand we’re seeing in Australia for premium lifestyle hotels that offer style and functional design, as well as authentic and memorable travel experiences connected to the location,” said Richard Crawford, senior director development, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International.
The property will also offer apartments, dining venues and shopping in the heart of Fishermans Bend, near Melbourne’s city centre.
