Melbourne is set for a new boutique hotel from later this year with Brady Hotels setting up camp in the Victorian capital.
Opening on October 1 2014, the new Little Latrobe Street property is nestled between Melbourne Central and RMIT University with easy access to the popular Bourke Street Mall and Crown Casino.
Spanning 16 floors and boasting 146 rooms, there will be four executive, two-bedroom apartments, along with two, two-bedroom penthouse apartments.
Scattered over the top two levels, all two-bedroom apartments enjoy stunning views over Melbourne and pack in two bathrooms, full kitchen facilities and a dining and living area:
On the lower floors are 84 standard and executive rooms, along with 56 studio apartments. As with the two-bedroom apartments, these also offer private guest balconies.
A separate working space makes executive rooms the best fit for business travellers, and for longer stays, studio rooms also come with a kitchenette:
Wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel at a cost of $15 per day, with Foxtel and in-room Smart TVs the perfect combination for a little downtime.
Rooms feature Scandinavian-inspired timbers, blue stone floors, copper fittings, Japanese tiles and custom-designed furniture, along with flexible-configuration Sealy ‘Posturepedic’ mattresses.
Also for work, hunger and recreation are a business centre, an on-site restaurant and bar and a gymnasium.
Conference facilities for up to 80 people are available, which come with an LED display and teleconferencing capabilities.
To celebrate the launch, the hotel is kicking off an opening special that includes a standard room, free wireless Internet access and an 11am late check-out for $149.
Valid for stays throughout October, the deal can be booked through the hotel’s website.
