March 19, 2019 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

One year ago, Novotel Melbourne South Wharf made a bold architectural statement, opening the doors for the very first time to the $150 million ‘golden tower’ with its distinctive gold façade. As the hotel hits its milestone first anniversary, it also basks in the success of a stellar year, having welcomed over 125,000 guests to the 347-room hotel located within the burgeoning South Wharf precinct.

The new-build mid-scale hotel was always bound for success with Melbourne’s reputation as Australia’s event capital and an aspirational destination for International visitors. The opening of Novotel Melbourne South Wharf complemented the timing of the expansion of the adjoining Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), providing delegates with more high-quality accommodation options on the Yarra River’s South Wharf.

Novotel Melbourne South Wharf General Manager Glen Erickson says, “Reflecting back on the past 12 months, our guests have ultimately been the judge of our success. Based on direct guest feedback and being ranked as one of the top ten hotels in Melbourne on TripAdvisor (in under 12 months) means that we have delivered a value proposition and made a good first impression.”

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre Chief Executive Peter Kingsays “The expansion of MCEC and the presence of the new-build Novotel Melbourne South Wharf has contributed significantly to the continued evolution of Melbourne as one of the region’s most important tourism, meeting and events cities.”

The team at Novotel Melbourne South Wharf also reflect on their first year of operation in numbers:

  • Over 375,000 sheets and over 175,000 towels have been washed
  • 525,000 minutes of Complimentary WiFi has been racked up
  • Welcomed over 125,000 guests through the doors
  • Ranked a top ten hotel in Melbourne on TripAdvisor

The future for Novotel Melbourne South Wharf looks as bright as its gold exterior. The hotel have chosen to set ambitious goals on its first birthday, focused firstly on the removal of plastic products and decreasing he level of waste.
