Two hundred additional hotel rooms offering sweeping views of the city skyline and Yarra River will be available in Melbourne with the arrival of AC Hotels by Marriott in Southbank.

The mixed-use complex called The Normanby will feature 150sqm of meetings and events space, 24-hour fitness centre, pool, three food and beverage outlets, along with a range of collaborative areas such as the AC Lounge, a co-working space for gatherings by day and a 'social hub' offering European-style tapas by night.
