New Hilton Melbourne Square hotel signed

Hilton is building a new 600-room hotel in Melbourne. Planned to open in 2023, the property named Hilton Melbourne Square is targeting the meetings and events sector.

The new-build hotel is part of a $2.8 billion mixed-use development, with residential, commercial, retail and 3700 sqm of open park space.

“Having recently signed Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street, we are thrilled to have now signed another Hilton Hotels & Resorts property with Hilton Melbourne Square, this time a major meetings and events property,” said Heidi Kunkel, vice president, operations, Australasia, Hilton.

“Melbourne is an extremely important market and with two new Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties joining our existing DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on Flinders Street, we look forward to welcoming both business and leisure guests to all three unique properties.”

The 600 rooms inside include 28 suites and one Presidential Suite. There will also be an executive lounge, alongside four food and beverage outlets including a rooftop bar and an all-day dining restaurant, a fitness centre, indoor pool, and extensive meeting and event spaces totalling over 2800sqm.

Hilton Melbourne Square is set to open in early 2023, with construction beginning in 2020.
