CROWNE PLAZA MELBOURNE
Four star hotel, Crowne Plaza Melbourne, houses 100,000 guests a year within its 402 guest rooms. Melbourne’s only absolute riverfront hotel, Crowne Plaza Melbourne was also our first major hotel project.
The owners’ brief to Ornoco was clear; transform the aging facility into a vibrant and contemporary offering that could rival Crown and Sofitel. Mindful of cost, our team worked hard throughout the project to streamline and refine our processes and supply chain – to deliver to the client a product that met their budget.
All projects contain some unknowns. An unexpected curve ball was having a change of designer and architect mid-project, resulting in Ornoco coordinating manufacture and design with four parties as opposed to two. With a substantial amount of FF&E furniture and designs updated midway through the project, we needed to be dynamic with our manufacturers to meet the new design intent.
Crowne Plaza Melbourne’s functional, contemporary design seamlessly blends work and pleasure together for all those who have the good fortune to stay in one of the city’s most popular hotels.
