Accor takeovers Hilton in Melbourne to become Pullman Melbourne on the Park

Travel News 01 Nov 2014

The long-standing Hilton on the Park hotel will leave the Hilton group to become the Pullman Melbourne on the Park hotel from January 1 2015, under the ownership of Accor.

The 419-room property sits within walking distance of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, Olympic Park and AAMI Park, allowing easy access to events such as the Australian Open and the Ashes Series.

It’s also at the eastern end of the Melbourne CBD for business travellers, with the centre of the city just a short journey away.

From the New Year, the prior Hilton HHonours Diamond lounge doors will be converted to Accor Le Club for Platinum members, who have access regardless of the room type booked or received. Accor Le Club members will be able to earn points when staying at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park hotel, with eligible members receiving their usual benefits such as free room upgrades and Internet access, in addition to lounge access for Platinum guests.

The Hilton South Wharf hotel remains an option for Hilton HHonors members heading to Melbourne, with a centrally-located DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne hotel opening its doors in December. The Pullman Melbourne on the Park will become the second Pullman in the Victorian capital, following the newly-renovated Pullman Melbourne Albert Park hotel.
