AUS: A Luxury Collection Hotel Set to Open in Hobart, Tasmania

The Tasman, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart, will be set to open at the end of the year in Hobart, Tasmania.

Luxury Collection Hotels are known for its iconic properties around the globe, and will be an unforgettable high-end accommodation offering in the heart of Tasmania.

"The Luxury Collection offers a gateway to the world's most exciting and desirable destinations, so it is wonderful to introduce the brand to Australia and put the rest of the world on notice to the charms of Hobart and our most southern state," expressed Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific at Marriott International.

For luxury travellers, this new hotel will be a must on the "to-stay-at" list. The Luxury Collection hotel will form part of Parliament Square in the city's centre. It is a short walk away from famous attractions such as Salamanca Markets, St David's Park and the Sullivan's Cove waterfront.

The hotel will boast 152 rooms, and guests will experience three eras of design; the original 1840s heritage building will blend with art deco luxury and a glass-ensconced pavilion overlooking the waterfront.
