Sofitel Melbourne begins $15m refurb

Sofitel Melbourne will undergo a refurbishment of all of its 360 guestrooms.

Set to be completed by March 2022, the $15 million refurbishment will be finished in time for the start of Melbourne’s festival of major events.

“We have created every room with its own design mood; the bed head, the unique chair or the art on the wall, everything has been created saying out loud… ‘let’s French it’,” said Clive Scott, the hotel’s general manager.

“The hotel is looking forward to welcoming guests in early 2022 to not only enjoy the new rooms, but also to live the refreshed service culture exemplifying French ‘joie de vivre’.”
