W Hotels has today confirmed that its anticipated new Australian property, W Melbourne, will open this December.

As the centrepiece to the $1.25bn Collins Arch precinct on Collins St and Flinders Lane, the luxury newcomer will hold 294 guest rooms, including 29 suites, four of which are ingeniously named ‘WOW suites’, alongside the ‘Extreme WOW suite’- the W’s take on presidential lodging with 40sqm private balcony.

An elevated food and beverage offering will straddle four destinations – Warabi (exclusive Japanese for only 30 diners and as well as private dining room for 10) Lollo (restaurant headed by an under-wraps but renowned local chef), Curious (bar and small bites) and Culprit (café-meets-wine-bar).

“This is the luxury lifestyle hotel that Melbourne deserves and we’re committed to delivering what’s new and next in design, music, fashion and fuel,” explains W Melbourne’s General Manager, Damon Page.

In keeping with W’s philosophy of detox, retox, repeat, Fit and Wet (that’s pool and gym in everyday speak) will be housed on level 14 along with a bar and enviable city views.

W Sydney is expected to open in 2021.
