Hobart has welcomed an unprecedented boom in new high end hotels openings with an additional 750 luxury rooms to be added by mid-2021.

Crowne Plaza Hobart opened its doors in July, followed by the Vibe Hotel Hobart in late November. Australia’s first Mövenpick hotel is set to open mid-January and The Tasman, a Marriott Luxury Collection hotel is slated for mid-2021.

“As industry confidence grows post-COVID, and groups plan to meet again in 2021, we’re seeing huge interest in these internationally regarded properties,” said Business Events Tasmania CEO Marnie Craig.

“New properties are always appealing to our market, but these high-end hotels come at a particularly opportune time as interest in Hobart for corporate and incentive travel groups is at an unprecedented high.

“The four new hotels add another layer to the Tasmanian business events experience and we look forward to event planners and delegates experiencing it for themselves.”
