Sneak peek at Melbourne’s new luxury MGallery hotel in Chadstone
Hotel Chadstone Melbourne isn’t due to welcome its first guests until Friday 1 November, but a group of visitors has been given an inside look at the fashion capital’s new luxury hotel which is due to become the 11th MGallery hotel in Australia and the first five-star hotel outside Melbourne’s centre.

It has been revealed that the $130-million, 12-storey hotel will include 250 teal-washed rooms and suites, plus two penthouses, featuring commissioned furniture inspired by trunks from luxury European fashion houses complete with leather detailing, as well as custom lighting and bespoke seating.
On the rooftop, guests will be able to enjoy panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline from the pool and surrounding private cabanas, or relax with a cocktail in Altus’ rooftop bar and lounge beneath a custom-designed seven-tier wine glass holder chandelier. Renowned chef and restaurateur Scott Pickett’s latest restaurant, Pastore, is also on site – serving up Italian-inspired cuisine all day with a focus on wood fire-fuelled cooking and handmade pasta. And when it comes time to relax, guests have a wellness retreat and day spa complete with LED lounge and yoga studio at their disposal.
Hotel Chadstone joins Accor’s MGallery by Sofitel collection of captivating boutique hotels that exude luxury, charisma and a profoundly local character. The brand’s Inspired by Her program aligns particularly well with the Chadstone area, offering exclusive services and special details that make a difference to the discerning feminine clientele: beauty items and emergency kits for women, more nutritious restaurant menus with dishes and drinks inspired by notable women and other services dedicated to women’s wellbeing.
Capitalising upon Chadstone’s proven international and domestic appeal – which draws 24 million visitors each year with world-class shopping, dining and entertainment – “this address will set a new benchmark for luxury accommodation outside Melbourne’s CBD,” said Neil Scanlan, General Manager for Hotel Chadstone MGallery by Sofitel.
