Meriton Suites Liverpool

Australian hotel group Meriton Suites has expanded its luxury offering to two new states with the opening of properties in Canberra and Melbourne.

The owner-operator’s investment of over AU$400 million sees the development of three new apartment-style-suite hotels, including its 16th property in New South Wales.

“We’re delighted to be opening three new Meriton Suites hotels across the nation, another big step for the company,” said Meriton Group Founder and Managing Director Harry Triguboff.

“Our investment into these new markets is a clear demonstration of our confidence in the continued growth of the domestic and international inbound markets, and the ongoing demand for luxury apartment-style hotels for the modern traveller.”

Canberra was the first of the three locations to launch, with the 280-room hotel – designed by Fender Katsalidis, MONA and Australia 108 – opening its doors on August 19.

Each of the new hotels feature one-, two- and three-bedroom suites with king-sized beds, kitchen, internal laundry, contemporary bathroom, all-hours fitness centre, an indoor heated swimming pool, spa and sauna.
