"Our four Melbourne hotels are all operating at occupancy rates above 90 per cent," said Sean Hunt, Marriott ANZ boss.


Marriott is expanding its presence beyond the Melbourne CBD with new hotels in the pipeline in Docklands and South Yarra.


It's part of a pipeline of 20 hotels Marriott will open in Australia and New Zealand over the next three years. Melbourne will remain the focus with the W Hotel on Collins Street that will open next year and a Ritz-Carlton under construction opposite Southern Cross Station.
