Element Melbourne Richmond announces 12th June debut
Element Melbourne Richmond, Australia’s first Element by Westin hotel, is gearing up to opens its doors on 12 June 2019, bringing with it the eco-focused brand’s amenities and commitment to helping guests maintain a balanced lifestyle while on the road.
Element Melbourne Richmond is located in Richmond’s Botanicca Corporate Park and has been designed with today’s healthy, active traveller in mind. The hotel features clean, modern and bright spaces throughout, a nature-inspired, eco-conscious design philosophy and wellness-focused amenities, promoting a life in balance for its guests.
Reservations are now open at Element Melbourne Richmond and to celebrate, the hotel is extending a pre-opening offer of $188 per night for an Element Room. The offer is available for bookings made from now until 12 June 2019, for stays until 31 August 2019. Members of Marriott International’s travel program, Marriott Bonvoy, will receive an extra 10% discount on top of this.
Brought to life by local architects and interior designers Rothelowman, Element Melbourne Richmond embraces the brand’s eco-conscious ethos with a building that curves to follow the water’s edge and uses a reflective curtain wall facade to encapsulate the surrounding landscape. Oversized windows draw nature into the building, blurring the inside from the outside to create a connection to the natural environment. Inside, water-efficient taps and fixtures, energy-efficient appliances and LED lighting, an extensive recycling program and more represent just some of the eco-friendly amenities. Neutral tones inspired by the Australian flora surrounding the hotel and soft textures are woven throughout.
Each of the hotel’s 168 spacious, light-filled, rooms and suites feature floor to ceiling windows that draw nature in, spa-inspired bathrooms, signature Heavenly Beds and free high-speed Wi-Fi, creating a relaxing space for guests to unwind and recharge. A select number of rooms also provide energy-efficient kitchenettes, ideal for long stay guests, or those travelling in groups.
Innovative dining and wellbeing offerings keep visitors healthy and active throughout the day. Guests can start the day with a RISE breakfast, while both visitors and locals can taste modern Australian, seasonally-inspired fare for lunch and dinner at Mint Lane Restaurant & Bar and wind down in the RELAX bar each evening. A 24/7 RESTORE grab and go pantry is also available for guests to purchase everything they need from a quick snack on the go to everyday essentials.
Guests looking to keep up with their fitness routine can enjoy the Motion Fitness centre, open 24/7 with the latest Technogym Equipment, or take their workout offsite while taking in the local scenery via Element’s Bikes-to-Borrow program – Element Melbourne Richmond is conveniently located close to bike paths that connect to Melbourne’s CBD.
For business travellers, Element Melbourne Richmond offers access to 256 square metres of function space, incorporating the latest technology, design and eco-friendly practices for guests to stay connected throughout their trip. The hotel is also pet-friendly, meaning guests can travel with all of their loved ones.
With a prime location in the Botanicca Corporate Park, just off bustling Swan Street, Element Melbourne Richmond is an easy tram ride from Melbourne’s CBD and within walking distance of the trendy Bridge Road boutiques, the heritage listed Burnley Gardens and the Yarra River.
