Award-winning hotel, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport completes major refurbishment

A first look at the multi-million-dollar refurbishment of Melbourne’s premier airport hotel

The multi-million-dollar refurbishment of Melbourne’s premier airport hotel, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport has been completed, with guests and event attendees invited to discover the property’s contemporary new look, modern interior décor and enhanced facilities.

As the only hotel directly connected to the airport’s terminals via convenient undercover pedestrian skybridges, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport offers guests a way to achieve a restful sleep ahead of their flight, and to access their terminal within minutes without stepping a foot outside – no need to wait for a shuttle or haul heavy luggage along the busy streets.

The hotel’s refreshed interior adds style to the convenience, offering light-filled spaces that contrast against the compact, clinical interiors of airports and aircraft. Carpets and textiles have been inspired by Melbourne’s distinctive character and diverse aerial landscapes and architecture, from its rural paddocks and winding Yarra River to the city’s grid-style urban planning.

Boasting 276 rooms with spectacular runway and Melbourne skyline views, including eight suites and eight family rooms, the property provides a relaxing alternative to the typical early morning alarm, traffic panic and parking challenges which can make travel stressful rather than serene.

In addition to travellers checking in to awaken refreshed for their flight, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport is also favoured by people farewelling family and friends who can enjoy a celebratory modern Australian meal in the revitalised Airo restaurant or casual Airo Bar, as well as business travellers who like to unwind the night before a meeting or relax after a long day.

Melbourne Airport is welcoming record numbers of international and domestic guests, and recently won the best airport in Australia and the Pacific for the fourth year in a row. We are thrilled to provide fresh spaces, enhanced guest rooms and unparalleled food and beverage options for those travelling through the travel hub of Australia, and to meet the demands of the increase in traveller numbers,” said Cameron Mead, General Manager of PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport.

“Our hotel offers guests unrivalled convenience, with guests able to travel completely undercover to access their terminal within minutes, without the need to navigate shuttle bus schedules, pay for a ride, or expose themselves to the elements while wheeling suitcases across concrete footpaths.”

Facilities for fitness lovers

From the 12-metre heated indoor pool, spa, sauna and steam room to the fully equipped fitness centre, which can be enjoyed 24 hours a day, there are plenty of options for guests, including families, to be as active or as tranquil as they like to prepare for, or recover from, their flight. 

Dynamic dining

At the hotel’s reimagined food and beverage venues, guests can trade airplane food for freshly baked pastries and coffee or a hearty cooked breakfast before strolling across the skybridges to check in – the ideal way to get into the holiday mood or prepare for the workday ahead. Airo Restaurant dishes up Australian-Asian fusion fare in a warm, elegant space with a patterned, gridded ceiling, Bar Airo serves boutique beers, signature cocktails and regional wines, while Café Airo is a lively spot for quick and casual bites. Those who prefer their meals in bed can take advantage of in-room dining, while the hotel’s popular ‘Breakfast on the Run’ is the preferred option for guests on the go – and fans of sleeping in.
