ACCORHOTELS’ Novotel and Ibis Styles’ brands will be built as part of a mixed-use 464-room development at Melbourne Airport’s new The Hive precinct.
Located adjacent to Terminal 4, the dual-hotel brand project will feature a wellness centre, conference rooms, pool, gym, rooftop garden, cafe, bar & combined restaurant facilities.
Melbourne Airport chief of property Linc Horton said current on-airport hotels were operating at significant capacity year-round, “so it is crucial we expand our hotel amenity”.
“This hotel will be a great addition to Melbourne Airport.
“Not only will the property give travellers more choice in accommodation style, it will offer two price points within the mid-market sector – reflecting the 3-star Ibis Styles and 4-star Novotel options,” Horton added.
The properties will be located within two 10-storey structures.
Construction is slated to begin in the second half of 2018 and the development will take around two years to build.
