Existing property in Melbourne has been transformed and re-branded into a new Pullman hotel. A US$ 20.61 million investment has been put into the property, formerly known as the Swanston Hotel Grand Mercure.
The official rebranding from Grand Mercure to Pullman is slated to occur on October 28 and a gala launch has been planned on November 12.
The 15-storey hotel offers 204 guestrooms and suites and is home to exquisite shopping and dining facilities.
Altogether four interior designers were involved in the project.
The interesting feature of the hotel is a complex laneway entry which attracts visitors from Little Bourke Street through an architecture tunnel ending into an arresting lobby space.
Eva’s restaurant & Bar provides all-day dining and drink facility. Another interesting aspect of the hotel is its Club Lounge, which is located on level 15 and expanded on the entire floor. Club guests have been provided with an entirely private event space, Room 1954.
All premium executive rooms have got lounge access while other rooms have been given the option of adding on the club lounge access during the booking time or during check-in for an additional AU$ 60.
