Méridien Melbourne

Le Méridien Melbourne has opened marking the brand’s reintroduction to Australia, with the hotel offering 235 guest rooms including 14 suites, a rooftop pool and terrace and 420sqm of conference space.

The hotel’s largest meetings space offers 182sqm that can be divided into two rooms. A dedicated meetings floor features four additional rooms and three private working booths.

Retaining the original Art Deco façade, the hotel sits on a site originally built as a hotel in the 1850s which has seen many iterations as a theatre, cinema, nightclub, and live performance venue since.


“We are pleased to reintroduce Le Méridien to Australia and bring the brand’s European essence of savouring the good life to global tastemakers and locals,” said Sean Hunt, Marriott International’s local boss.

“Melbourne is known as one of Australia’s most European cities, especially with its art, culture and food attractions. As a Parisian-born brand focused on unlocking a destination, Le Méridien is the perfect fit for the city and the hotel is set to become a landmark for cultural-focused travelers visiting the city.”

Peter Minatsis is the general manager of Le Méridien Melbourne.

“We are excited to draw back the curtain on Melbourne’s most glamourous new hotel and invite guests to savour the good life through immersive art, elevated European dining, and our showpiece rooftop pool,” he said.
