Hilton unveils new city hotel for Melbourne

Hilton Hotels will open the doors to a complete revamp of Melbourne's heritage-listed Equity Chambers into Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street (Hilton Melbourne LQS) later this month.

Located in the heart of the city, the upscale hotel has been designed by leading Australian architecture studio Bates Smart and will open at midday on March 22. 

Built in 1931, Melbourne's Equity Chambers was renowned for its architectural style and Italian Romanesque and Gothic detailing. 

Its rebirth features original features restored along with a six-evel extension with a 16-level tower. 

Within its historic walls, the old and new have been combined, with sandstone, European oak and bronze materials against the backdrop of grand high ceilings, marble stone finishes and upholstery in navy, taupe and royal blue. 

External and internal artworks include a tribute to the city's thriving graffiti-art scene. 

The hotel's guest rooms feature prints by Melbourne photographer Roger Arnall, commissioned to explore Melbourne architecture in his unique minimalist style. The pieces capture iconic Melbourne landmarks including the Royal Exhibition Centre, Flinders Street Station and Federation Square. 

Entered from Bourke Street, Hilton Melbourne LQS's Luci restaurant and The Douglas Club cocktail bar have their own entrance independent of the hotel's laneway lobby. 

Executive chef Sam Moore promises a classic modern Australian menu, accented with hints of Italian and European culinary traditions.

The Douglas Club aims to replicate a classic cocktail bar. 

The hotel will have 244 guest rooms and suites as well as a large balcony event space with city skyline views featuring a mural by Kitt Bennett; seven meeting and event spaces and a fully equipped gym. 

“As we put the finishing touches on Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street in preparation for opening, we are confident it will be a beautiful addition to the city skyline," said general manager Adrian Teh. 

Room rates will start from $300 per night.
