PARKROYAL returns to Melbourne
PARKROYAL will return to Melbourne with the rebranding of Hilton Melbourne Airport to become the PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport on 1 April 2011. This will become Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s third PARKROYAL hotel in Australia since its return to Australia in November last year.
The opening also marks a return of the PARKROYAL brand, which was founded in
Melbourne, Australia in 1962, to its city of birth. The PARKROYAL portfolio is now owned and operated by Pan Pacific Hotels Group and consists of hotels, resorts and serviced suites in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Australia.
Located on the doorstep of the domestic and international airport and linked directly to the terminal by skybridge, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport offers 276 guest rooms with city, airport and mountain views. The hotel will also feature 16-state-of-the-art meeting and function rooms all located on one level.
“We are delighted to bring PARKROYAL back to its birth city. Visitors to Melbourne can look forward to a refreshed and updated PARKROYAL brand that emphasizes authentic local experiences and friendly and unobtrusive hospitality,” said Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s President & Chief Executive, A. Patrick Imbardelli. “Guests can look forward to PARKROYAL’s unique offerings in more cities as we continue to expand the brand’s presence in Australia.”
The opening of PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport along with the recent introduction of
two PARKROYAL properties, PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney and PARKROYAL Parramatta in Sydney, further drives Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s growth strategy in Australia.
