Bookings have now opened for The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Hobart, for arrivals starting 1 December 2021.
The 152-key hotel, located at the redeveloped Parliament Square in the Tasmanian capital, marks the entry of Marriott’s five-star The Luxury Collection brand in Australia. It will be the first luxury hotel in Hobart since the MACq 1 debuted in 2017 on the city’s waterfront.
The impressive heritage development connects Salamanca Place with an elegant fronting on Murray Street in Hobart’s Parliament Square, a new centre for Hobart that is situated in the most enthralling part of the city, just steps from the famous Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the vibrant waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove.
The property features some of Hobart’s most spectacular suites. Each accommodation offering within the hotel highlights a distinct character and experience so that no stay is ever the same. Original artworks from local artists, warming fireplaces and island baths are some of the highlight features within.
“We are overjoyed to be opening bookings for The Tasman and cannot wait to unveil a truly unique hotel that has been years in the making,” said Stephen Morahan, General Manager at The Tasman.
“We look forward to welcoming our first guests to explore the captivating character of the hotel, designed to be the perfect base for experiencing the epicurean highlights of Hobart as well as the wilderness of the island beyond. Whether travelling from near or afar, we want to create a quintessentially Tasmanian experience as much for visitors as for the locals who help make The Tasman the unique destination it is.”
The Tasman will host an outstanding selection of bars and signature restaurant, including Peppina – a celebration of old-world hospitality and produce-focused cooking led by renowned Tasmanian chef, Massimo Mele who gives Italian-inspired cuisine a local Tasmanian twist. Hidden within the deep sandstone walls of the building, Mary Mary is an intimate and sophisticated bar created by cocktail extraordinaries Charlie Ainsbury of Proof & Company, set to provide an old-world drinking experience reimagined for modern times, with an inspired cocktail menu celebrating local Tasmanian ingredients.
Reservations are currently available for check-in from 4 January 2022. Bookings for the month of December 2021 are expected to open in the coming weeks.
