Dorsett Hospitality International, Australian CEO Andrew Jessop said: “Dorsett Hospitality International is proud to be opening a new hotel in Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne. Off the back of the success of our first Australian opening on the Gold Coast, it was a natural next step to look towards Melbourne which has seen an
incredible bounce back in tourism since covid.

“We look forward to continuing to grow our global footprint and to add to the Melbourne community.”

Natalie Bussenschutt, Dorsett Melbourne’s General Manager said: “We are delighted to welcome Dorsett Melbourne, the second Dorsett hotel into Australia, expanding the brand’s global footprint. At Dorsett Melbourne, our guests will enjoy our intuitively designed social spaces, an executive lounge, and beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, including pet-friendly and family rooms.”

“Our caring and vibrant team look forward to welcoming you and sharing our local knowledge for an authentic Melbourne experience complimented by a memorable hotel stay.”

Dorsett Melbourne comprises 316 guest rooms over 8-levels, designed by award-winning architect Cottee Parker. Rooms and suites include pet-friendly rooms for that “pawfect” getaway and family rooms where the littlest guests can have their own memorable moment in a themed room.

The Dorsett Melbourne executive lounge is an exclusive area where guests can work, dine or relax with signature, amenities included such as private check-in and out, two hours of complimentary meeting space, and a pressing service with food and beverage service throughout the day and evening.

Modern conference rooms are suitably matched for small to medium-sized events; each featuring natural light with the latest in technology to meet the changing needs of meetings including hybrid connections.

Executive Chef, Julio Martinez of Dining Concepts has designed an array of delectable menus across Dorsett Melbourne’s food and beverage facilities. Martinez has designed all menus with sustainability front of mind, specialising in local ingredients from the state of Victoria.

All Day Dining offers breakfast from 7 am to 10 am on weekdays (and until 10:30 am on weekends) with a sumptuous seafood menu available for dinner. All Day Dining also offers a private dining space for special occasions in addition to outdoor dining.

Jin Bar offers a relaxed ambience to enjoy a signature cocktail with a tailored menu that celebrates the historical gold rush of Victoria with Jin translating to ‘gold’ in Mandarin. The gold theme is celebrated with touches of gold leaf throughout the space.

Martinez recommends trying the Not so Old Fashioned, a twist on the classic Old Fashioned that includes whiskey, fig & cinnamon bitter, and hickory smoke.

The Lobby Lounge is perfect for a cheeky pre-dinner drink before heading out to explore Melbourne, or for a nightcap before sliding into Dorsett Melbourne’s comfortable beds for a blissful night’s sleep.

All Dorsett Hotels are proud to incorporate five key attributes that are adapted to each new hotel site. They include city convenience, social connectivity, priceless guest delights, active wellness, and creating positive impact to the local community.

Dorsett Hotels’ commitment to delivering city convenience is reflected in the abundant amenities on offer ensuring every guest’s stay at Dorsett Melbourne is a memorable one. Amenities includes an indoor heated pool, complete with a day-bed area, spa, sauna, steam room, wellness room, and a gymnasium with the latest in Techno-Gym equipment.

Guests will “stay vibrant” at Dorsett Melbourne with hospitality at the core of the Dorsett Hotels ethos.

Details of the hospitality venues will be made in Q2 2023.
