Whatever/Whenever! Melbourne to get its first W Hotel in 2020

The first W Hotel in Melbourne will be part of Cbus Property’s $1 billion plus mixed-use luxury precinct Collins Arch in 2020. 

W Melbourne at Collins Arch will be located in the eastern tower of the dual tower project, which will also have commercial office space, retail, hospitality and luxury residential apartments. 

The hotel will have 294 guestrooms across 15 levels, including 40 suites. Other facilities include a cocktail bar, restaurant, day spa, pool, gym, conferencing and ballroom facilities. 

Melbourne interior design practice Hachem has been appointed to design the hotel’s interiors. 

Designed in collaboration by Woods Bagot and New York practice SHoP Architects the development will feature the city’s first sky bridge that links the dual towers. 

The hotel deal, brokered by Michael Simpson of Savills Australia and New Zealand, involved the sale of the hotel component of Collins Arch to Daisho Development Melbourne. 

He said the Collins Arch hotel deal was hotly contested by investors, with a number of luxury brands also showing interest.

“The resulting partnership between Cbus Property, Daisho Development Melbourne and Marriott International has been a really positive example of collaboration with all parties working together to deliver an outstanding luxury hotel and a city-enhancing project for Melbourne,” he said.
