Tune Hotels has announced that its first property in Australia will open ahead of schedule on 21 October 2013.
The new Tune Hotel Melbourne was originally due to launch on 1 November, but the opening has now been brought forward by almost two weeks. The decision was announced in Melbourne today (3 October 2013) by Tune Hotels’ group CEO, Mark Lankester.
“While the official soft opening of the hotel had been earmarked for 1 November, we are thrilled to announce that we are ahead of schedule and will bring the opening forward to 21 October. It’s not every day that things go well in terms of construction and development and we are absolutely delighted,” Lankester said.
The 225-room Tune Hotel Melbourne is located on the city’s Swanston Street, next to the University of Melbourne. The property features an indoor courtyard, lounge, restaurant, convenience store, self-service launderette and computer kiosks. It is also equipped with a car park.
Tune Melbourne will become the group’s 33rd property and Australia its eighth country, following Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Japan, the UK and the Philippines.
