At the edge of Fitzroy Gardens and a short stroll from the MCG, sits one of the most iconic hotels in Melbourne – Pullman Melbourne on the Park. With a long legacy of providing first-class accommodation to busy business travellers, excited tourists and energetic sports fans, the hotel is currently undergoing a sophisticated new renovation.
The area is one of Melbourne’s most celebrated, famed for its brilliant connections to Melbourne’s business, dining, sports and cultural precincts. With stunning city views and the leafy Fitzroy Gardens and Yarra Park on its doorstep, the importance of the outlook and the hotel’s location is palpable, with the renovation exemplifying and highlighting this unique aspect.
Not influenced by fads, the materials selected throughout are classy and elegant.
Catering to a wide variety of tastes, the neutral palette employed in the guest rooms enhance the contemporary-classic feel. Without changing the architecture or structure, the design encompasses techniques to trick the eye into making the space feel bigger. Switchable privacy glass provides an unforgettable experience, switching back and forth between a clear window panel and a non-transparent opaque panel, and enables the views to be experienced from the bathroom. Moments for pause are catered for with a luxe window chaise, creating a calm atmosphere perfect for relaxation. For those looking to entertain, each room has a dedicated dining table for two.
The hotel’s location was always at the forefront of the minds of DKO’s interiors team. Vibrant city skyline and lush park views are framed at every turn through the introduction of metal shrouds which surround new windows and make the view more prominent.
Respectful of the hotel’s history and earlier renovations, this current refurbishment adds a dash of refinement to its contemporary style and sets the tone and benchmark for future works intended for Pullman’s other hotel assets.
