Hotel Chadstone Melbourne, MGallery by Sofitel has officially opened, with the first guests arriving on 1 November to experience Melbourne’s new five-star property.
The $130 million hotel features 250 rooms and suites, a rooftop bar and restaurant and eight event spaces located steps away from Australia’s largest luxury retail precinct, Chadstone Shopping Centre.
Chadstone director Fiona Mackenzie said the hotel aims to set a new benchmark for luxury accommodation outside Melbourne’s CBD.
“With more than 24 million people visiting Chadstone every year, including 500,000 from overseas, Hotel Chadstone will be an in-demand destination for domestic and international tourists and visitors, as well as business travellers and those attending corporate events,” she said.
The property boasts more than 1000 square metres of event space, include a ballroom with capacity for up to 650 guests.
The rooftop bar and restaurant, Altus, can also be utilised for events, such as cocktail functions for up 175 guests.
Renowned chef Scott Pickett has also opened an all day-dining restaurant, Pastore, at the hotel.
Accor Asia Pacific chairman and CEO Michael Issenberg said Accor is honoured to work with Vicinity Centres on the project.
“It’s a perfect partnership, and one that provides us with an opportunity to expand our luxury footprint in Melbourne, with MGallery delivering a stylish and memorable experience for our guests,” he said.
