Located along the southern banks of the Yarra River, Oakwood Premier Melbourne will be close to several corporate office buildings and key international and regional financial institutions, as well as the Melbourne Convention Centre. 

Oakwood was tapped by Yarra Hotel Group (through its advisory firm Prime Square) to operate the complex. The signing follows the recent announcement of Oakwood Hotel & Apartments Dandenong in April.
