A celebration of French flair and modern luxury; Sofitel Melbourne on Collins has a brand new look.
Sofitel Melbourne on Collins has revealed its new guest rooms following a $15 million renovation. The French-inspired rooms feature modern fixtures, new contemporary furniture and carpet.
Each room has the hotel’s signature armchair and footrest in a deep blue. This colour is reflective of the colourful streetscape of Melbourne and its laneway artwork.
It also draws on the French flag with the blue venerating Saint Martin, and the property’s position in the French quarter of Melbourne.
Sofitel Melbourne on Collins General Manager, Clive Scott AM, says the rooms showcase the hotel’s timeless elegance and continued commitment to the arts.
As part of the refurbishment, the hotel has also partnered with Global Art Projects (GAP) to create a joint photographic project between Australian photographer, Jon Rendell and Parisian photographer, Claire Ropartz.
The project features more than 2,000 artworks celebrating the relationship between Melbourne and Paris.
The artworks explore the uniqueness of the cities with the ‘Australian’ photographing in Paris and the ‘Parisian’ photographing in Melbourne.
Each of the 360 guest rooms features images of both cities with a focus on the architecture and people across a mix of photographic mediums. Prices start from $325 per night.
