Marriott Opens Pet Friendly Element Hotel in Melbourne, Australia

Marriott has expanded its rapidly growing Element by Westin brand to Australia with the opening of the Element Melbourne Richmond.

Owned and developed by TRC (Aust), the hotel is located in the new Botanicca Corporate Park on the banks of the Yarra River, six kilometers from Melbourne’s city center, just moments from the buzzing dining and shopping of Richmond’s Swan Street and a short drive from the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Victoria Arts Centre.

“The launch of Element Melbourne Richmond marks a significant milestone for Marriott International, as the first of its kind in Australia,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand & Marketing, Asia-Pacific, Marriott International. “A recognized industry leader in the longer-stay eco space, Element Hotels promotes a balanced approach to living and travel. The debut comes as travelers are increasingly seeking out accommodation that offers a flexible environment to live, work and connect.”

Designed by Melbourne architects, Rothelowman, a curved façade reflects the winding Yarra River, while oversized windows provide an abundance of natural light, and eco-conscious touches such as energy-saving LED lighting, CO2 sensors monitoring air quality and water-saving taps and fixtures, play into the brand’s philosophy.

Each of the 163 guest rooms and five deluxe balcony king rooms feature spa-inspired bathrooms, the signature Heavenly Bed, and high-speed Wi-Fi. A select number of rooms also have a kitchenette, ideal for guests planning a longer stay, or those traveling in larger groups.

In addition to a multifunctional F&B outlet, the hotel also features a variety of meeting space, a 24/7 grab-and-go pantry, a 24/7 Motion Fitness centre fitted with the latest Technogym Equipment, as well as a complimentary Bikes-to-Borrow program that allows guests to take their workout outdoors.

The hotel is also pet friendly, offering pet beds, toys and even a dog-friendly mini bar.

“We’re excited to be bringing a new experience to the Australian market, catering to the eco-conscious traveler who is looking to maintain a balanced lifestyle when on the road,” said Harry Singh, General Manager, Element Richmond Melbourne. “From our spacious guest rooms, to our wholesome food options and amenities, no matter how long a guest stays, Element Melbourne Richmond ensures time away from home doesn’t mean time away from life.”
