Several firsts come along with the opening of the Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands.

The new hotel, which features 189 bedrooms and a one-of-a-kind rooftop infinity pool, is destined to become a resort-style sanctuary minute from Melbourne’s city core. The facility will provide premium cuisine and inspiring activities that will assist both residents and visitors in cultivating their imaginative nature.

The first international five-star hotel in the harbor area, Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands is located on Waterfront Way in The District Docklands shopping, leisure, and entertainment complex. The hotel’s highlight is a 92-foot wet edge rooftop infinity pool, which is served by an adjoining bar that offers panoramic views of Melbourne’s CBD cityscape, Bolte Bridge, Port Phillip Bay, and Hobsons Bay.

Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands was designed by DKO Architecture and is inspired by the aerodynamic curves of sailboats in the city’s waterfront. The curving façade provides many outstanding views of the sea, cityscape, and Bolte Bridge. This delicate and calming design flows seamlessly from the building’s façade to its inside, accented by the lobby’s fluted glass windows and art installations gently inviting people to the connected laneway.

The building’s beautiful ‘petal’ form provides a distinctive vista from every room and window. The 189 guestrooms, which showcase Marriott Hotels’ newest design thinking, have been painstakingly created to give a large and modern look replete with personalized solutions as innovative as the hotel’s guests.

Each guest room is bathed in natural light and features premium in-room amenities such as plush bedding, a 55-inch LCD TV, an open, retail-inspired wardrobe that alleviates fears of leaving clothes behind, a work surface that allows guests to move and use technology freely, a walk-in shower, and a curated ‘Made in Melbourne’ bar fridge.

Additionally, guests will have access to specially selected in-room material via the first-of-its-kind relationship between Marriott Hotels and TED.

Additionally, the Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands is home to Australia’s first private M Club executive lounge. The 24-hour lounge, designed to resemble a domestic living room, is the ideal spot to unwind, mingle, or conduct work.

The M Club is available to Marriott Bonvoy Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador Elite members and visitors staying on elite levels. It offers complimentary breakfast, all-day snacks, and evening cocktails. The adjacent outside patio provides a unique opportunity to dine al fresco in the heart of Docklands.

Additionally, the new hotel caters to fitness aficionados by providing access to all of the groundbreaking solutions available in the new Technogym Excite Live platform while working out in the Fitness Center. Through the use of artificial intelligence and immersive content, the cutting-edge equipment line is meant to provide customers with a customized training experience by linking to a variety of exercise material, personal wellness data, and entertainment alternatives such as Netflix.

The 92-foot rooftop infinity pool, heated to an ideal 84 degrees Fahrenheit, allows visitors to take a swim year-round while taking in the magnificent vistas of Melbourne.
