New Darwin Hotel Delivers With éLan

April 23, 2014 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

An exciting new product for the Northern Territory in 2014 will be the opening of the A$120 million élan Soho Suites in Darwin.

Located in the heart of the CBD, the property will offer a combined total of 301 hotel rooms, stylish one and two bedroom apartments and penthouse suites.  Availability of such a range within the one property is expected to have strong appeal to conference planners who seek to offer their delegates more than one accommodation-style option.élan Soho Suites is also the Northern Territory’s first ‘home-grown’ hotel chain and will be locally-owned and operated.

One floor of the property will be dedicated to conferencing and functions. The entire area can be used as one large space or broken up into seven boardroom-style venues. All venues will have natural light as well as state-of-the-art equipment and WiFi will be accessible throughout the property.  The largest venue will have capacity for 250 guests in a banquet-style setting, 407 delegates theatre-style and more than 380 for cocktails.

élan Soho Suites will feature Darwin’s first Korean BBQ restaurant to be known as“Seoul Food”. This is the first time in Australia that an authentic Korean BBQ restaurant has been integrated into a hotel development. With the kitchen to be headed up by Chung Jae Lee, an award-winning chef and published author, and with menus offering a mix of modern Korean and Australian cuisine, the restaurant will be a most welcome addition to Darwin’s restaurant scene.

Other facilities at the hotel will include a 20 metre lap pool, a fully-equipped air-conditioned gym, same-day laundry services as well as 24 hour reception and room service. For the added convenience of business travellers, it will be possible to enjoy remote check-in by smart phone, saving time on arrival at the hotel.

As with all properties in the compact Darwin CBD, the new hotel will be just a short stroll to Darwin’s Waterfront Precinct, as well as the dining, entertainment and night-life hub.  élan Soho Suites will be a first-time exhibitor at AIME 2014 and the property is expected to open in July 2014.
