Pullman Melbourne unveiled
ACCOR and hotel owner Erdigroup have unveiled the 204-room Pullman Melbourne on Swanston, following a $30 million rebuild of the former Swanston Hotel Grand Mercure.
The project has seen the addition of a new restaurant, an exclusive club lounge with views over Melbourne, redesigned guest rooms and a fresh-look for the lobby.
The hotel has been designed to meet the needs of both business and leisure travellers, with access to the city’s CBD, top dining, shopping and leading attractions on its doorstep.
Erdigroup CEO Ricky Jeffs said the hotel’s hidden laneway entrance offered guests
“an authentic Melbourne experience”, which he said gave an “architectural tunnel opening into an arresting lobby space to provide a distinct sense of arrival for guests”.
Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer Simon McGrath said the group had a “long and successful relationship” with Erdigroup and described the Pullman Melbourne on Swanston as “a celebration of innovative architecture, style, wellbeing and importantly for this location, great gastronomy”.
