Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide signed the Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands. The hotel is owned by Meteorite Land (Pearl River) as trustee for Meteorite Land (Pearl River) Unit Trust, and will be operated by Hiap Hoe.
Set to open in January 2017, Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will be located in the newly developed Digital Harbour Precinct in Melbourne Docklands.
The new-build Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will be located on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Dudley St in the Digital Harbour at the north western end of the rejuvenated suburb of Docklands precinct. The property, designed by architectural company dKo, will comprise part of the landmark and the "Marina Tower Melbourne," an urban development project converting harbor side land into a mixed use residential and commercial precinct.
Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will have 269 guestrooms, including 18 suites with each guestroom offering harbor and city views. The hotel will also offer three food and beverage venues, including a signature restaurant, a deli-style cafe and the hotel's signature bar.
Additionally, the hotel's recreational facilities will include a gym/fitness facility, an outdoor heated swimming pool, and an outdoor deck area. Ideal for meetings and events, Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will offer services for conference, meetings and business guests with flexible meeting and function space totaling 5,705 square feet.
Located approximately 20 to 30 minutes from the airport, the Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands also offers easy access to Melbourne's CBD. Docklands has several miles of Yarra River and Victoria Harbour water frontage lined with apartment buildings, restaurants, retail outlets and open space. Landmarks nearby include the Etihad Stadium and Southern Cross Station.
Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will join Starwood's portfolio of 13 hotels in the Pacific region.
