Mice Net : December 2008
intercontinental melbourne, the rialto A World-Famous Name Arrives at a World-Famous Destination InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto opening December 2008. The AU$60 million resurrection of Melbourne’s grandest heritage hotel is close to completion. The iconic The Rialto will reopen in December 2008 as InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto, bringing one of the finest brands in international hotel luxury to Australia’s most cosmopolitan and vibrant city. Bookings are now being taken for what will be the only luxury hotel in Melbourne’s financial district, transformed as one of the city’s last and best remaining examples of 19th century gothic architecture into a world- class international hotel by Joseph Pang Design Studio. The hotel’s public and private spaces will be available for meetings, conferences and events from January 2009. The opening will also mark the establishment of InterContinental – the world’s first truly international hotel brand – in the city of Melbourne. Established in 1946, InterContinental is the epitome of superior, understated service and outstanding facilities in premier destinations across more than 60 countries. The revitalised hotel will also join an exclusive global collection of heritage-listed InterContinental hotels and resorts, including InterContinental Le Grand Paris, InterContinental The Willard Washington and InterContinental Sydney. Joseph Pang and his team have married the historical aspects of a true architectural icon with an exciting and unexpected contemporary design. The result is an encapsulation of the spirit of Melbourne; a blend of rich and unique history with a cosmopolitan culture that cities the world over aspire to but rarely achieve. The hotel’s rich history shines through its dedicated meeting and event spaces, which range from intimate boardrooms and breakout spaces through to a ballroom catering for up to 300. Supported by the hotel’s variety of five star dining establishments, bars and themed catering services, business interaction at InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto promises to be a unique experience.
