International hospitality company Next Story Group has acquired a new-build hotel in Melbourne’s Southbank for the Australian debut of the LinQ Hotel brand.
Slated for a soft opening on September 1, LinQ Hotel Melbourne Southbank will offer 162 rooms after a complete fit-out.
The hotel will be joining sister brands the Next Hotel Melbourne at 80 Collins Street, which is slated to open in 2020, and the Sage Hotel Melbourne in Ringwood, which has been in operations for over a year.
“This latest addition to our hotel portfolio has a superb location, right in the heart of Melbourne’s Southbank precinct,” said Darren Edmonstone, CEO of Next Hotels & Resorts.
“We are excited about the opening of the LinQ Hotel in Melbourne which is famous for its year-round calendar of social, sporting, arts and cultural events. Coupled with the unique value proposition of our LinQ Hotels brand, we are confident that our new property will be able to deliver strong trading performance.”
