Is Melbourne the city one might seek in which to rest and rejuvenate? Westin is making that proposition a possibility with the Element Melbourne Richmond, which marks the debut of the Element brand in Australia and with it, the longer-stay brand’s signature eco-conscious philosophy and commitment to helping healthy, active guests maintain a balanced lifestyle while travelling.
All aspects of the property are designed to provide guests with a place to unwind and recharge, whether travelling for business or leisure, and whether they are staying for a short trip or longer. Oversized windows provide an abundance of natural light and eco-conscious touches, such as energy-saving LED lighting, CO2 sensors monitoring air quality and CO2 water-saving taps and fixtures, play into the brand’s philosophy.
Each of the 163 guest rooms and five deluxe balcony king rooms include thoughtful touches like extra space, natural light, spa-inspired bathrooms and the signature Heavenly Bed. A select number of rooms also feature energy-efficient kitchenettes, ideal for guests who planned for a longer stay, or those travelling in large groups.
Of note is the hotel’s multifunctional dining space, which transforms daily — starting with the brand’s signature Rise breakfast, offering health-focused options and local coffee and tea, to Mint Lane Restaurant & Bar for lunch and dinner, serving seasonal modern Australian fare using fresh local ingredients.
Guests can enjoy the brand’s signature evening Relax reception four days a week, which offers complimentary local beers, wines and small bites while the 24/7 Restore grab-and-go pantry is available to purchase snacks and food items to prepare in their rooms, as well as everyday essentials.
