Located in the heart of Melbourne’s dynamic city centre and opposite iconic Flinders Street Station, this hotel is within easy walking distance of Melbourne’s famous laneways, bars and shopping and the vibrant arts and entertainment district.
A multi-million dollar refurbishment in late 2014 has resulted in an upscale, contemporary and warm 180 bedroom hotel that includes destination restaurant Platform 270, 24-hour rooms service and fitness centre, and new features like the Sweet Dreams™ bed, WIFI, HDTVs and bespoke design touches inspired by its urban Flinders Street location.
Unwind in the stylish and newly refurbished guest rooms, equipped with contemporary amenities designed to help you relax and stay productive. Lie back on the signature Sweet Dreams® by DoubleTree bed while you browse channels on the HDTV. Work at the desk space on a stylish Billiani chair, and keep in touch with WIFI access (fee applies). Enjoy the spacious bathroom with walk-in shower, combed cotton terry towels and deluxe bath products to make you feel pampered. Other amenities include tea and coffee making facilities.
Many rooms offer city views of the central business district rooftops or buzzing Flinders Street. Skyline River View rooms offer panoramic views over Flinders Street Station to the Yarra River, from the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the east to South Wharf in the west. Interior rooms are contemporary and quiet with feature light boxes displaying vintage maps of central Melbourne.
Start your morning, or wind down after a busy day in the 24-hour fitness centre. Take in superb views over Flinders Street Station as you enjoy a complete workout with a full range of the latest equipment.
Named in tribute to its famous neighbour, Platform 270 is a very Melbourne style restaurant: influenced by the many and varied laneways of the city. Like these eclectic city laneways, the executive chef has created a diverse menu that incorporates local produce and playful flavours put together with both modern and time-honoured culinary techniques.
This smart-casual, intimate and design-savvy restaurant has leather-bound booths that are perfect for groups of friends, and views into the open kitchen that will entertain.
With its open kitchen and zoned dining areas the restaurant makes for a chic and unique private event space.
Pull up a chair at the Platform 270's lobby bar or take a seat by the dramatic free-standing open fire and watch Flinders Street buzzing by. Choose a drink from the extensive range of beers, wines, cocktails and soft drinks, or pick a bottle from one of the vintages on display.
The hotel has three modern and flexible meeting rooms and a chic restaurant that make an ideal location for business and social events in the heart of Melbourne’s central business district.
Two event rooms can accommodate up to 70 people each, or 140 when combined. The rooms have been recently renovated in a simple, flexible style that includes dramatic carpeting inspired by Melbourne's graffiti laneways. The spaces have an integrated sound system, in-built data projectors and retractable screens. The third room, a boardroom, enjoys a 55" LCD TV.
All food is prepared by the hotel's chic restaurant, which can also be booked for private events. Catering options include breakfasts, light catering, cocktail events and sit-down dinners.
