$30 million sees Grand Mercure transformed into a Pullman



A $30 million investment has transformed a former Grand Mercure property into a brand-new Pullman hotel – the first for Melbourne’s CBD.

Rising 15 levels and offering views of the CBD, the hotel comprises 204 guest rooms and suites and is positioned on Swanston Street at the gateway to the Little Bourke Street precinct – home to some of Melbourne’s best shopping and dining.

The new Pullman Melbourne on Swanston emerges following a complete rebuild and rebrand of the property formerly known as The Swanston Hotel Grand Mercure.

“The original building was stripped-back to its structural bones – nothing was left untouched in the major overhaul, which has delivered a striking façade, re-designed guest rooms, a designer lobby, a brand-new restaurant and an exclusive club lounge overlooking the city,” said Ricky Jeffs, CEO of Erdigroup.

Four different interior designers were engaged to create unique spaces throughout the hotel. 

The new hotel has a laneway entrance from Little Bourke Street and aimed to provide guests an authentic Melbourne experience.

“The hotel has been tailored to smart, successful business and leisure travellers who value immersive spaces, trendsetting food and beverage and leading-edge design," said Jeffs. "It will offer a seamless and intuitive experience, while providing access to Melbourne’s famed arts, culture, shopping and fashion.”

Tucked away on the mezzanine level, Eva’s Restaurant & Bar offers all-day dining and drinks.

Another feature of the new hotel is the exclusive Club Lounge, a Pullman brand signature.

Part of Accor Group, Pullman has grown to become the largest five-star hotel brand in Australia since its launch into the market 12 years ago.

The Pullman Melbourne On Swanston is the 16th Pullman hotel in Australia.
