Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley has unveiled its $5.6 million dollar refurbishment of 200 accommodation rooms, revealing a sophisticated new look and feel in line with the hotel’s reputation as the premier business and leisure destination in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
The completion of the four month refurbishment program heralds the arrival of Novotel’s innovative NEXT rooms which have been designed with a range of features to enhance the spaciousness and functionality of the room in conjunction with new advances in in-room technology and energy-saving products.
Hotel General Manager, Andrew Maynard said that the Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley will set a new benchmark in the design of a Novotel room and is excited to bring this vision to life.
“We are very excited about the excellent standard of room we now have available to our guests after four months of renovations. We have made significant changes to uplift the style, functionality and technology in the rooms, which we hope will attract even more leisure and conference guests to our hotel,” he said.
The growing number of guests travelling with electronic devices will welcome the large workstation with integrated ‘MediaHub HD’ which allows portable digital devices to be connected to the 32” television. Stereo Bluetooth enabled smart phones, laptops or MP3 players can also connect wirelessly to stream audio through the TV speakers, so guests can work like they would in the office or be entertained by their own music, movies or games as they would at home.
A number of energy-saving elements have been incorporated into the new rooms including a low-energy, silently operated mini bar fridge with glass door for easy viewing, polished stainless floor lamps for easy on the eye room ambiance, adjustable LED bedside reading lights, and full length block-out curtains to reduce heat and light for optimal room temperature. With the addition of these new features, Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley is now fully accredited in Accor’s PLANET 21 global sustainability program.
Rooms also feature the Novotel NEXT halo bed head with integrated backlighting and designer headboard with bright splashes of colour, luxurious Sleepmaker Pocket Spring beds, new carpet, iPod docking station and clock radio, space-saving chaise lounge and a versatile coffee table providing a separate area for dining or relaxing with a magazine.
New sleek, white bathrooms have been given the wow factor with large, spacious stone vanities complete with NEXT halo vanity mirror. A frameless shower screen and designer tap ware complement the stylish bathroom design.
Security has also been enhanced with the addition of security key card lift activation, the new accommodation room proximity touch locking system and an upgrade of hotel security cameras.
As one of Melbourne’s most successful conference and event venues outside of the city centre, Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley has also added 300 custom designed banquet chairs to further enhance its recently refurbished Conference Centre. The new chairs will provide guests with superior back support and comfort during even the longest of events.
An integrated hotel and entertainment complex, Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley is right on the doorstep of a shopping centre, cinemas, indoor bowling and is within walking distance to over 35 restaurants and cafes located in Glen Waverley village.
The Novotel is located at 285 Springvale Road, Glen Waverley, just a short 20 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD and the Dandenong Ranges. The train station is located behind the hotel for easy direct access to the city or MCG.
