Accor’s newest hotel, Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer, is now open.
The 172-room hotel, now the second Mövenpick in Australia, forms the six-level podium of the striking 78-storey Premier Tower development at the meeting point of iconic Spencer and Bourke Streets and opposite Southern Cross Railway Station in Melbourne’s CBD.
The hotel is dedicated to wellness with a dedicated recreation floor featuring a 25-metre swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, and well-equipped gymnasium. Open until 10pm, this is one of only a few hotels pools in Melbourne where guests can swim at night.
The hotel houses two unique gastronomic venues – and a dedicated Mövenpick Café serves the brand’s signature ice cream alongside barista-made coffee and local artisan chocolates.
With the brand’s heritage and rich culinary offerings inextricably linked to its Swiss origins, an area famous for its chocolate, Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer dedicates one hour each afternoon to ‘Chocolate Hour’.
Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said Melbourne is an ideal location for the Mövenpick Hotel brand.
“We couldn’t be more excited to unveil our second Mövenpick Hotel in Australia. This investment benefits the local community by providing a choice of even greater accommodation options for visitors to Melbourne and for loyal Accor guests,” he said.
“With its impressive range of culinary offerings and boutique interiors, this hotel enriches Melbourne’s incredible hospitality offering. While the recent Melbourne lockdown impacted our opening date, it has also given us the gift of time to perfect the finer details of the hotel offering.
“We are confident Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer will entice more visitors to Melbourne as travellers, whether they are leisure or corporate, want hotels that offer authentic style and heartfelt guest service.”
