Melbourne hotel spends $25 million on a refurb - and isn't finished yet

If you are going to do a hotel refurb you might as well do a proper job of it, which is why Crowne Plaza Melbourne has just unveiled the results of a 12-month refurbishment program that cost $25 million.

The money was spent of transforming the the 402 guest rooms with contemporary bathrooms, standalone showers with state-of-the-art showerheads, premium bedding, designer furnishings and striking artwork.

Connectivity throughout the entire hotel has also been upgraded.

The hotel's City View rooms now boast spacious walk-in wardrobes and workstations, while the hotel's Luxury suites feature deep bathtubs, walk-in showers, plush bedding, new furniture and sweeping views of the Yarra River and Melb city skyline.



Area General Manager for InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG), David Mansfield, said the renovation is the first step in a new chapter for the hotel.

“Few properties in Melbourne have a history as rich as Crowne Plaza Melbourne and the standard to which all of the hotel's guestrooms have been refurbished is outstanding,” he said.

“The property is absolute riverfront and is in a premium position – close to Melbourne's Convention and Exhibition Centre, the CBD and on the doorstep to Melbourne's tram network.

"With Phase 1 of the refurbishment now complete, together with the hotel owners SB&G Group, we are excited by the appeal the new rooms will have for business, long-stay and leisure travellers and we look forward to welcoming them.”

Phase 2 of the hotel's multi-million dollar refurbishment will commence in the second quarter of 2019 and will see all of the hotel's public areas redesigned, including updates to the hotel's conference and event facilities, a new restaurant and bar concept, and updates to the hotel pool, gymnasium and lobby.

The Crowne Plaza is at 1-5 Spencer St, Melbourne VIC 3008. (03) 9648 2777.
