Marriott is debuting its Element brand in Australia in the Richmond area of Melbourne.
The new hotel will be a part of the Botanicca Corporate Park - a campus-style office park featuring modern commercial spaces and a variety of retail and lifestyle amenities.
There will be 168 guestrooms and a few of them will feature kitchenettes for guests that are after a longer stay.
One of the largest hotel trade expos to happen in New Zealand will take place late May, when the Marriott International Global Sales Mission is held at the Maritime Room in Auckland.
Conference and incentive organisers, wholesalers and corporate travel agents/travel management companies are among the invitees.
The Mission is the first time Marriott has brought its showcase to these shores and encompasses what used to be known as the Starwood Expo. It is significantly larger than the Starwood event – with at least 24 hotels expected rather than the previous 15.
About 30 business event organisers, corporate agents media and hotel representatives were out on the Auckland Harbour aboard Hauraki Blue with Marriot International recently.
The evening included the opportunity to win return trips with both Air new Zealand and Virgin Australia, as well as staying at Marriott properties in Fiji, Samoa and Gold Coast.
