Melbourne Convention Bureau’s (MCB) partner AC Hotel by Marriott Melbourne Southbank has officially opened. Debuting for the first time in Australia, the design-led lifestyle brand is part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands.

Located in one of Melbourne's premier events, arts and entertainment precincts on the city fringe of Southbank, guests are in close proximity to public transport, South Melbourne Market, Melbourne Convention Centre, South Wharf shops and eateries and the Arts precinct.

The 205 thoughtfully designed guestrooms and suites offer sweeping views of the city skyline and the Yarra River. From sleek desks, open closets, and integrated bathrooms to easily accessible outlets for mindful work and play, AC guestrooms are free of clutter and maximise a sense of openness.

With distinctive indoor and outdoor venues, this hotel is the ideal setting for meetings and social gatherings in Melbourne. AC Hotel by Marriott Melbourne Southbank features a range of collaborative spaces including the brand’s signature AC Lounge, a modern co-working space for creative gatherings by day and a buzzing social hub offering European-style tapas by night.

The hotel houses 576 square metres of flexible meeting space, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing abundant natural light, along with an outdoor covered terrace room and pool bar. The outdoor terrace beside the infinity pool can serve as a pre-function space accommodating up to 200 guests in cocktail format or broken down into smaller spaces for breakouts and more intimate meetings and social gatherings.

Sorolla provides the perfect place for breakfast to start the day, with a dining experience that includes an open kitchen to capture the chefs in action. Triana Bar exudes a ‘wow’ factor showcasing stunning views and a long, iconic freestanding bar where guests can mix and mingle with each other. The space offers simplicity and sophistication in the subtle finishes of warm timber, natural stone, bronze accents and softer grey materials. Bar de Buceo, the pool bar, also offers guests a relaxed area to enjoy drinks and light, alfresco style dining, making it the perfect place to unwind.

The hotel offers a range of leisure facilities, including an outdoor, infinity-edge swimming pool spanning the width of the building, a 24-hour fitness centre, and meeting and event space designed to host groups of varying sizes.  

With such fine amenities and close proximity to the city, AC Hotel Melbourne Southbank is a great spot for your delegates to stay during their conference or corporate meeting.
