Hotel Windsor confirms early-2014 start for $260 million extension

Melbourne's historic Hotel Windsor

BY JAMES WILKINSON

Melbourne’s Hotel Windsor has confirmed the property’s AUD$260 million extension is due to start at the beginning of 2014 following plans for the redevelopment being finalised.

Hotel Windsor’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Beverly Robinson, said until the project starts, it would be business as usual at the 129-year-old property.

“We’re now taking bookings for meetings, conferences and events through to early 2014,” she said.

“With the planning approval process for the re-development now finalised, we’re able to offer certainty to our guests and the good news is that for the next two years The Hotel Windsor will remain a preferred venue for important events and celebrations in Melbourne.”

While Heritage Victoria signed off on the project last month (Jan), work on the redevelopment, which includes the construction of new rooms and a refurbishment of the existing building’s interior, won’t start until 2014 at the earliest.

Robinson said in the meantime a number of improvements – including the painting of rooms and the lobby, due over the coming months, and a facelift for the Cricketer’s Bar – would ensure the property remained competitive in the Melbourne market.
