The Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, is planning a significant restoration and refurbishment programme as part of a multi-million dollar re-branding initiative announced by Rendezvous Hospitality Group (RHG) recently. The refurbishment will rejuvenate the historic building and include a range of modern facilities for business and leisure travellers. The extensive upgrade programme incorporates the accommodation rooms and suites, food and beverage facilities and conference and meeting facilities. The property will, however, remain open throughout the works period. When the refurbishment is complete in mid-2012, the hotel will be relaunched as the Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne.
