Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is forging ahead with its aggressive growth strategy in Australia and the Pacific with the signing of Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands.
Set to open in January 2017, Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will be located in the newly developed Digital Harbour Precinct in Melbourne Docklands.
The new-build Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will be located on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Dudley Street in the Digital Harbour at the north western end of the rejuvenated suburb of Docklands precinct. The upscale property will comprise part of the landmark and much anticipated “Marina Tower Melbourne," an urban development project converting prime harbour side land into a mixed use residential and commercial precinct.
Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will feature 269 guest rooms including 18 suites with each guest room offering guests harbour and city views. The hotel will also offer three food and beverage venues including a signature restaurant, a deli-style cafe for quick bites, and the hotel’s signature bar for guests to enjoy a great local beer as part of the Four Points Best Brews program. Additionally, the hotel’s recreational facilities will include a gym/fitness facility, an outdoor heated swimming pool and an outdoor deck area.
Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands will join Starwood’s robust portfolio of 13 hotels at a time of unprecedented growth for the brand in the Pacific region. Earlier this year, Starwood announced its expansion in Perth with the signings of The Westin Perth and Aloft Perth Rivervale. In 2014 the company has opened three hotels in Australia and the Pacific – Sheraton Melbourne Hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane and Sheraton Resort & Spa, Tokoriki Island in Fiji – with another two additional hotels in Samoa to be opened by the end of the year.
