Victoria’s newest hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands, has been confirmed to open on March 28.
The 273 four-star hotel forms part of the new Marina Tower development and is the first international hotel in the busy Docklands area, offering the largest inventory of guest rooms and meeting space in the precinct.
“We’re excited to open the doors on our new property that’s been very carefully planned, designed and built to create a warm welcome to both business and leisure guests and bring Four Points hospitality to this part of the city,” says Four Points by Sheraton, Melbourne Docklands, General Manager, Stephen Ferrigno.
Designed by Melbourne-based DKO Architecture, the contemporary aesthetic fuses a dark charcoal and aquamarine palette with blonde timber, bleached grey-wood panelling, abundant marble and glass, fresh greenery and deeper notes of black and bronze.
The sparkling centrepiece is a 7th floor Sky Lounge complete with 25-metre heated outdoor pool, Jacuzzi and vast pool deck with impressive city views, as well as a sleek and welcoming lobby and lounge bar that’s set to serve Four Points Best Brews program of local beers, boutique ciders and brews.

Complimentary, energising breakfast with fresh coffee is served to guests each morning, while Dock 18, the relaxed all-day dining restaurant, extends a menu that heralds grain and grass fed beef, pork and lamb sourced from nearby farms for an ever changing line up of BBQ’d, braised, cured, smoked and grilled dishes that are flavourful, fresh and seasonal.
The ground floor Best Brews lounge bar is the perfect spot for colleagues, friends or family to gather over a local beer as part of the Four Points Best Brews program, which offers a selection of local and international wines, boutique ciders and brews. The Melbourne range features a range of craft beers from Mountain Goat brewery in nearby Richmond through to Japan’s famous Asahi brewery.
