Parkroyal Melbourne Airport has unveiled its new-look event spaces as part of a multi-million-dollar hotel refurbishment.

A total of 16 rooms follow a design inspired by Australia’s heritage, incorporating Melbourne’s unique character with aerial landscapes of Victorian countryside, with bespoke carpeting and accent lighting throughout.

The majority (14) of the rooms offer natural light, and double-glazed windows to minimise distractions.

Delegates have access to a business centre, equipped with mini bars and the latest smart technology and state-of-the-art audio-visual (AV) equipment, and AV professionals are also on standby.

“Our refurbished meetings and events floor offers a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere, perfect for conferences, corporate dinners, cocktail parties, fully-contained residential meetings and more,” said Parkroyal Melbourne Airport General Manager, Cameron Mead.

“We’ve always had a lot of repeat business due to the versatility of the spaces, and the convenience we offer, given we’re the only airport directly connected to the airport’s terminals via an undercover skybridge, and offer flight arrival and departure screens in our lobby.”

Mead said the hotels’ MICE business remains strong.  

“We’ve observed a particular appetite from the industry association market for our conference spaces, as these bodies draw members from across all states who enjoy the cost, time and resource savings of fly-in-fly-out meetings.

“We’ve also secured events with both new and existing clients in the medical, pharmaceutical, healthcare, government, logistics, manufacturing, and corporate sectors, ranging from one-day boardroom meetings to multi-day residential conferences.

“These groups have been eagerly awaiting the re-opening of the meeting and events floor, and we are grateful for their overwhelmingly positive feedback.”

A selection of smaller meeting spaces are available for more intimate gatherings, while The Victoria Ballroom can host 300 for theatre-style setting and can be split into rooms for 64 cabaret-style.

The Ballarat and Daylesford room can host 24 in a boardroom style, or 17 in a u-shape style in each room, when divided into two separate spaces.

The refurbished Airo Restaurant and Bar offers a private dining room where modern Australian and international cuisine can be enjoyed in comfortable surrounds.

Parkroyal Melbourne Airport’s refurbishment extends to its 276 guest rooms, which follow a serene colour palette inspired by Australian lifestyles and nature, as well as the lobby, which offers a light-filled contemporary arrival space.
