The new site also marks the Australian debut of Marriott International's M Club lounge concept, which is open 24 hours for platinum, titanium and ambassador members of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty club and guests staying on executive levels. Inside, guests can indulge in a daily breakfast, all-day refreshments and cocktails in the evening across indoor and outdoor areas.

Dining is a four-tiered experience, led by the refined Australian cuisine at Archer's. Guests can also access the mixed-use hotel lobby cafe and bar Ada's, which offers space to work, socialise or grab a snack and drink.

Melbourne's strong coffee culture is also represented with Corsia serving premium and locally roasted coffee blends and a European inspired menu of light bites. Evening entertainment is next to the rooftop pool at Sunset House, which catches the golden rays of Melbourne's stunning sunsets.

Marriott International Area vice president, New Zealand and Pacific, Sean Hunt said the new hotel marks a major milestone for the company and continues its growth momentum in Melbourne.

General manager Girish Talreja said they look forward to being part of reviving the hotel and travel sector and establishing Marriott Docklands as a must-stay venue.
