Marriott International has appointed Girish Talreja as general manager of Marriott Docklands Melbourne ahead of its opening in December 2020.

Talreja was previously hotel manager at the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park, and brings nearly two decades of industry experience to his new role, working at various Marriott International hotels.

“I’m excited to return to Melbourne and I look forward to sharing my expertise and knowledge to provide the best services for our guests,” he said. “I’m thrilled to work with the Capital Alliance team and bring their vision for this development to life.”

Marriott International’s Asia Pacific chief Sean Hunt said they were pleased to have Girish on board for the opening of the new 200-room hotel.

“Having worked for a range of Marriott International branded hotels, Girish understands the importance of bringing the brand to life for our guests,” Hunt said.

“It’s an exciting time for Marriott as we continue our commitment to the travel and tourism industry here in Australia. During these unprecedented times, our ongoing goal remains to grow our business and to strengthen our offering.”
