AUSTRALIA: Do you daydream of fancy parties in penthouse apartments and think… “maybe one day”?Well, if location, location, location is number one on your wish list for a trip to Melbourne, then the Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne on Flinders has THE penthouse to suit.
Eighty per cent of the apartments in this hotel, conveniently located on the prettiest side of Melbourne city, can see the MCG, whilst the 150sqm penthouse has views as far as Port Melbourne Beach. Add in massive balconies and thoughtfully designed kitchens and it’s the perfect room to stay and spread out in or hire for intimate weddings, parties, small expo events or incentives.
Widely known as Australia’s fashion capital, Melbourne oozes style and Adina’s penthouse apartment follows suit. The room can be dressed up or down to suit your stay or occasion and is equally adaptable for business meetings or casual soirees. In fact, the double story, loft-style is reminiscent of downtown New York, complete with designer furnishings and a private balcony with views that are equally stunning with a morning coffee or Manhattan cocktail.
ACDC Lane is close by, so you could very well have the likes of Ed Sheeran or other world-class acts provide a spontaneous soundtrack during their pop-up laneway concerts. Food and beverage are outsourced for events and, if you’re staying in-house, Federation Square is just a quick two-minute walk away, as are Melbourne’s historic arcades and laneways which are lined with cafes, boutique and the city’s most talked about restaurants. There’s even a hidden whiskey bar nearby if you want to impress.
But wait, there’s more… when Melbourne’s infamous weather kicks in, floor-to-ceiling windows let the outside in without exposing you to the elements. . After a day sent exploring Melbourne’s hip laneway shops, street art, and eclectic cultural lifestyle, you can come home to the Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne on Flinders and just enjoy the decadence of your Melbourne city getaway.
Oh, and have we mentioned New Year’s Eve fireworks?
