The Tasman in Hobart is one of Marriott International's hotels to open in 2021.

Marriott International has revealed the name of its new Luxury Collection property being constructed in Hobart will be called The Tasman, which is on track to open in late-2018.

The Tasman, which marks Marriott International’s debut in Tasmania, will reside in an assortment of repurposed heritage buildings and will form a prominent position in Parliament Square, a new design-led, urban development set to revitalise Hobart’s city centre.

Premier of Tasmania, Will Hodgman, and Marriott International Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Sean Hunt revealed the name to guests at a special event on site in Parliament Square earlier this week where guests were shown around the hotel’s mock-up room, which showcases the property’s elegant design by Sydney-based firm, JPDC.

“Bringing the Luxury Collection to Australia is a significant milestone for Marriott International, where we’re on track to open 50 hotels by 2020,” Hunt said.

“With its stunning natural beauty and growing cultural and foodie scene, Hobart is an extremely desirable destination for both national and international guests, and this hotel will be the place for luxury travellers to stay when visiting Tasmania.

“With construction on track, we look forward to welcoming guests for the opening in 2018,” he said.

Owned by Trawalla Group Parliament Square Hotel Operator Pty Ltd, The Tasman will offer guests 128 luxurious rooms and suites, all with carefully restored features and considered Georgian and Art-Deco design elements throughout.
