Photos: new Sheraton Melbourne Hotel

By David Flynn, April 1 2014

The new Sheraton Melbourne Hotel is the latest addition to Australia's capital of elegance, opening its doors for travellers.

It's located at the fashionable 'Paris end' of Collins Street, of course, in the eye-catching 31-storey Wavilinear building.

Located just moments away from the Princess Theatre, Parliament House and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the Sheraton Melbourne features 174 stylish and comfortable guest rooms, including 11 Terrace Suites in this CBD hotel.

Thoughtful touches in each of the rooms and suites include the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed; 'Smart TVs' with wireless Internet connectivity and a generous work space.

The naturally-lit, modern marble bathrooms boast a separate bath and shower facility.

The hotel’s bistro-style Little Collins St Kitchen restaurant offers a 'home away from home' for guests and locals alike.

Featuring home-kitchen style designs, the restaurant serves wholesome gourmet fare throughout the day, including breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

The hotel’s Terrace Bar, on level 3, is a contemporary designed roof-top space serving cocktails and snacks in an exquisite outdoor setting overlooking Little Collins Street.

Additional hotel amenities include a heated indoor lap pool, a fully equipped fitness facility and a Shine Spa with five treatment rooms (including a couple’s room) featuring Germaine de Capuccini treatments.

Six meeting rooms are available for business travellers and can be configured to accommodate between 12 and 400 delegates on a dedicated conferencing floor, spanning over 660 square metres.

A special rate marks the hotel's grand opening, with prices starting at $260 per night for guest rooms and from $750 per night for suites.

Including breakfast, high speed internet access and double Starpoints for Starwood Preferred Guest members, the discounted rates are available for stays from 1 April and 30 September 2014 (subject to availability).

In that picture of the bathroom, is that bed a reflection or is it literally at the other end? Thanks!

I think it's a glass pane between the bathroom and the bedroom. This actually a pretty common feature in high-end hotel rooms in Southeast Asia, though there's usually a privacy screen or a way to transition it to frosted glass.

It's awfully fashionable and I've seen it in a bunch of places (e.g. The Standard Los Angeles) without any kind of privacy screen. It's a terrible idea, and hotel designers need to get over it. Even if it's fine for 90% of your guests, there'll inevitably be some for whom this is not at all fine.

I will note that the actual toilet is usually in a different room.

Its very common indeed, I've seen it in a lot of new 5 star hotels in asia in the past few years. I like it, maybe because I usually travel alone. However, I don't really see a problem for the 10% because there's ALWAYS something to cover up if need be, e.g. blinds.

The good thing about this design is that the alterative is a wall. So for the people who are travelling alone, they can watch TV or see the view while taking a bath. If you preferred a wall, just let the blinds down.

Interestingly, I've even seen this concept in apartments now, e.g. new apartments in Milsons Point.

Or, if in The Standard in Manhattan, shower in full view of all those in the building opposite and/or downstairs, as they have the same clear glass dividing room from bath/shower, and CLEAR glass on oustside windows (READ; no tint, so all inside is completely visible to all outside).

A free show and a little exhibitionism never killed anyone...

Of course, if that could turn into frosted glass (i.e. electrochromic), then that's a different story...

Hopefully having another SPG hotel in Melbourne will take some pressure off the Westin

Yes - sensational building. I'd love to stay there for a week or so. In the Autumn when the weather MAY be a bit more reliable than usual :)
