The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins Unveiled

November 23, 2018 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

The grand hotel at the corner of Spencer and Little Collins Street has been reborn this week as The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins, Melbourne, following a multi-million-dollar refurbishment of the former Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne which TOGA has managed since 2004. The hotel now falls under the TFE Hotels Collection brand – a portfolio of beautiful discovery hotels with a sense of story, place and purpose.

Previously known as the Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne, the iconic hotel has been relaunched as The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins with a stunning new design by Woods Bagot.  The new design has a modern and inviting appeal that pays tribute to the Art Deco era of the original Hotel Alexander built on the site in 1928. The sophisticated address is in the heart of cosmopolitan Melbourne, with the city’s best boutiques, cool laneways and bars on its doorstep.

The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins has 163 beautiful guest rooms with plush furnishings in a classic palette of dove grey, blue, white and charcoal, with full-length mirrors and custom carpet featuring period motifs. Each bathroom has white subway tiles and chequerboard black and white tiled floors, contrasting with chrome tapware that reflect the heritage elements of the building.

The sophisticated lobby creates an inviting sense of arrival with its warm timber, smoked mirror and brass elements complemented by luxurious soft furnishings with colourful custom rugs. The Alexander Bar is now the elegant ground floor attraction, a cosy yet stylish space providing the perfect place to catch up with friends, meet a business contact or simply sit back and relax. Throughout the day, the bar is open for drinks and in-house dining.

The level two restaurant will have new-look interiors, playing on a spectacular 10-storey atrium, which fills the space with natural light and is complemented by magnificent chandeliers. The Boardroom’s rich palette of timber, leather and stone provides an elegant space ideal for a private dining experience or a business meeting. The original ballroom is ideal for sophisticated weddings.

TFE Hotels Chairman Allan Vidor said the refurbishment, combined with the hotel’s unbeatable location, would position it as the most desirable stay in the heart of Melbourne.

“This hotel has such a wonderful story, in its history, and in its place in the Melbourne psyche – which makes it a perfect fit for the TFE Hotels Collection brand,” he said. “This is the most exciting unveil of the year. This magnificent hotel will reclaim its position as a grand hotel of Melbourne, as it was when it opened in 1928.”

Woods Bagot is famous for remarkable hotels world-wide and lifestyle and commercial projects such as Sydney’s The Ivy complex and Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Woods Bagot senior associate Sarah Alessi said, “The contemporary aesthetic of this design enhances the heritage of the building, while retaining a truth and authenticity relevant to its history. Drawing on elements of the Art Deco period, the space is bold and confident and the design detailing references that of the era.”
