Holiday Inn Melbourne On Flinders’ Newly Refurbished Rooms Bring The Joy Of Travel To The City
March 27, 2018 // Franchising.com // Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders has completed the refurbishment of all its guest rooms, bathrooms and suites, giving travellers to the city a fresh, joyful hotel experience in the heart of the city.
Each room was completely gutted to create a blank canvas for the architect to design a room with the modern traveller in mind. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the striking new interiors, with electronically switched block out blinds which can be controlled by the bedside.
The bathroom, luggage rack and wardrobe have been purposely designed outside the bedroom space, giving guests more of a ‘living room’ feeling while relaxing on new Holiday Inn® pillow top beds. Large HD TVs have been integrated into a stylish wall panel with HDMI and USB connectivity, allowing travellers to connect with free WIFI to their favourite digital content.
The new bathrooms have been completely renovated and now feature large showers and an opaque window into the bedroom that means the bathroom is flooded with natural light. The stone vanity counter tops offer plenty of space and all fittings are water conserving, ensuring that the hotel continues to minimise the impact on the environment through the IHG Green Engage™ system.
The hotel enlisted architects Wilson & Hill of New Zealand, to reinvent each hotel room and add seven additional, bringing the room count to 209.
David Hill, Director of New Zealand architect firm Wilson & Hill is delighted to have been part of the refurbishment of a much loved Melbourne hotel, saying “The refurbishment of the existing rooms provided an opportunity to create modern hotel rooms and corridors containing up-to-date features and fittings. The materials, finishes and colours create a contemporary Melbourne interior with a high level of quality.”Blair Roxborough, IHG's Area General Manager - Victoria, South Australia & Tasmania, believes it has set a new standard of hotel in Melbourne. He says: “The hotel offers a new and fresh experience to our guests. We know that everyone will enjoy our modern rooms and stunning bathrooms, no matter if they are travelling for business or leisure.”
Conveniently located on Flinders Lane in the Melbourne CBD the hotel looks forward to launching the new conference and event space in Q2 2018.
