Pull­man Mel­bourne un­veiled

Travel Daily - - News -

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”.
