The Victoria Hotel Melbourne Adds A Touch Of Ibis Styles

July 9, 2013 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

One of Melbourne’s historic landmark hotels, The Victoria Hotel, has today been re-badged under Accor’s Ibis Styles economy brand and will become the 41st Ibis Styles hotel in the Asia-Pacific region.

With a rich history and personality, Ibis Styles Melbourne, The Victoria Hotel combines the grandeur of the late 1800’s with all the comforts and conveniences of today situated in Melbourne’s bustling city centre.

Originally known as the Victoria Coffee Palace and a dry hotel (no alcohol), it was an alternative to the rowdy pub accommodation on offer during the late 19th Century.

Today, guests can enjoy an alcoholic beverage in Vic’s Bar before heading off to explore Melbourne’s most popular attractions and events. All major theatres are just a 5 minute stroll from the hotel, which is located on Little Collins Street in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.

Ibis Styles Melbourne, The Victoria Hotel General Manager, Peter Barker, said “Joining Accor’s non-standardised economy and design brand means Ibis Styles Melbourne – The Victoria Hotel will enjoy strong visibility whilst keeping in with the hotel’s own distinct personality  and values.

“Guests to our new-name hotel will be able to enjoy modern accommodation, the recently upgraded rooftop pool and fitness centre, plus free wi-fi in public areas to keep tabs on the outside world,” said Mr Barker.

Ibis Styles is part of the new evolution of Accor’s economy brands which has seen the introduction of Ibis, Ibis Budget (replacing Formule 1) and Ibis Styles (replacing All Seasons).

Part of the Accor network since 2003 and formerly an All Seasons hotel, Ibis Styles, The Victoria Hotel features 371 accommodation rooms, an indoor heated swimming pool, rooftop fitness centre and spa, restaurant, bar and conference facilities.

Ibis Styles, The Victoria Hotel remains one of Australia’s largest 3 star hotels and offers guests a charming and affordable and home away from home. Room rates start from $115 per night.

With more than 40 hotels in the Asia-Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, there are more than 190 Ibis Styles hotels in 18 countries across the world.
