Global hotelier Accor and Singapore-based Fragrance Group are set to open Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer in May 2021, the second launch in Australia within the space of months since a Hobart opening in January.
The 172-room premium hotel on the corner of Spencer and Bourke Streets in the Melbourne CBD will form the six-level podium of the striking 78-storey Elenberg Fraser-designed Premier Tower development.
"We're delighted to be bringing the Mövenpick hotel brand to Melbourne," says Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath.
"This investment will benefit the local community by providing a choice of even greater accommodation options for visitors to the city and for Accor loyalty guests.
"The city of Melbourne is the perfect location for a Mövenpick hotel, enriching Melbourne's incredible culinary scene with an outstanding restaurant and bar, and masterfully blending the brand's Swiss heritage with a top quality hospitality experience."
Situated opposite Southern Cross railway station, the centrally located hotel will also offer an exotic blend of modern South East Asian cuisine at is own Miss Mi restaurant and bar, a daily Chocolate Hour, and an assortment of other Mövenpick brand signature offerings such as a 25-metre swimming pool, sauna, gym and boardroom.
"We are excited to further develop our partnership with Accor and deliver Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer, which will be a unique addition to Melbourne's tourism offering," says Fragrance Group CEO James Koh.
"We can't wait to unveil this exisite hotel, and showcase its showstopper Miss Mi venue, to Melburnians and those visiting the culture capital of Australia."
Fragrance Group also partnered with Accor for Mövenpick Hotel Hobart, a 221-room with designs inspired by Tasmanian nature.
"Mövenpick Hotel Hobart transcends the traditional hotel experience by masterfully blending the brand's Swiss heritage with a premium hospitality experience," McGrath said in January.
"We're so excited to share this stunning property with guests visiting Hobart from other parts of Tasmania and Australia.
"Accor is planning more locations for Mövenpick across the Pacific and we believe this premium brand will quickly gain recognition for its culinary and service excellence."
