Sofitel Melbourne on Collins is bringing the saying ‘Live the French Way’ to life with an extensive $15m refurbishment delivering luxurious new guest rooms that feel like a Parisian apartment in the heart of Melbourne.

Renowned architect I.M. Pei, who originally designed the hotel, has once again influenced the design direction of the new-look guest rooms which exude an understated minimalist style.

The stunning new guest rooms have been refreshed with new state of the art modern room fixtures, brand-new contemporary furniture and carpet and French inspired photography hung in the traditional French ‘Salon’ style.

Sofitel Melbourne on Collins General Manager, Clive Scott AM believes the new-look guest rooms showcase the hotel’s timeless elegance and continued commitment to the arts.

“After undergoing a $15 million refurbishment, we’re excited to welcome guests to enjoy our stylishly refreshed guest rooms that evoke a feeling of calm and luxury in the heart of Melbourne,” Mr Scott said.

“Sofitel Melbourne on Collins is proud to support Melbourne’s arts and cultural scene and as such, has incorporated French inspired photography in the new guest rooms that celebrate the uniqueness of both Melbourne and Paris.”

As Melbourne's Hotel for the Arts, photography of both cities focuses on the architecture and people of Melbourne and Paris across a mix of photographic mediums. Curated around the themes of the built environment, le flaneur, icons and monuments, street life and gardens, the photography honours Sofitel Melbourne’s rich cultural heritage and continued commitment to the arts.
