Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands has officially opened this week. Featuring 189 guestrooms and a one-of-a-kind rooftop infinity pool, the property is destined to become a resort-style haven just minutes from Melbourne city centre.
The first international five-star hotel in the harbour suburb, Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands is nestled within the retail, leisure and entertainment precinct, The District Docklands on Waterfront Way. The centrepiece of the hotel is the sky-high water feature, a 28m wet edge rooftop infinity pool, serviced by an adjoining bar with panoramic views across Melbourne’s CBD skyline, Bolte Bridge, Port Phillip Bay and Hobsons Bay.

Sean Hunt, Marriott Area Vice President for Australia, New Zealand and Pacific said: “The opening of Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands marks a significant milestone for us. It’s the first Marriott branded hotel we open in Australia in 20 years and the first five-star hotel in the Docklands precinct.
“We now operate a portfolio of seven hotels in Melbourne and 27 in the country. Despite an uncertain time through COVID, we are seeing the growth and confidence in travel re-emerge and we look forward to being a part of the revitalisation of the travel sector throughout Australia,” Hunt said.
Guestrooms are designed to offer a balance of modern utilitarian look with inspiration from residential interiors. Bathed with abundant natural light, each spacious guestroom features premium in-room amenities including luxuriant bedding, high-speed Wi-Fi, a 55-inch LCD TV, a retail-inspired wardrobe, a walk-in shower and a curated ‘Made in Melbourne’ bar fridge.
The new hotel also caters to fitness enthusiasts with all the revolutionary solutions of the new Technogym Excite Live platform whilst working out in the Fitness Centre. Using AI and immersive content, the state-of-the-art equipment range is designed to give users a personalised training experience by connecting to a wide range of workout content, personal wellness data and entertainment options including Netflix.
The rooftop infinity pool is heated to an inviting 29 degrees, enabling guests to take a dip while enjoying the sweeping view of Melbourne all year-round.
Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands also welcomes the first exclusive ‘M Club‘ executive lounge in Australia. Designed to emulate a residential-style living room, the 24-hour lounge is the perfect space to relax, socialise or meet for business. The M Club is open to Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador Elite Marriott Bonvoy members and guests who stay on executive floors, offering complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails. The adjoining outdoor terrace offers a rare al fresco space in the heart of Docklands.
