What hotel is favored by business travelers in Melbourne?
Home to the Aborigines for centuries, Melbourne, Australia was settled by the British in 1835. When gold was discovered near Melbourne in 1851, the settlement flourished and soon became a powerful financial center. At the end of WWII, immigration brought more business and cultural diversity to Melbourne. Today, Melbourne is known as “The Knowledge City” and has evolved into a global business and investment center. It is a world leader in biomedical and health research and a host of international companies have research and development bases there.
Doing business effectively in Melbourne requires a hotel that understands and meets business travel needs. Location and range of business services are important. The Condé Nast 2007 Gold List cites Langham Hotel, Melbourne as a perfect location with exemplary accommodations and service. The Leading Hotels of the World group includes the Langham Melbourne in its prestigious collection of worldwide 5-star hotels.
The Langham Hotel is located on the south bank of the Yarra River within walking distance of the city's business centers and arts and leisure district. A fully-equipped hotel business center and global communications facility provides administrative support including teleconference and translation services. Spacious and elegant guest rooms equipped with broadband Internet access make it easy to stay in touch with clients. The Langham Hotel Club provides a hot hotel breakfast, all day refreshments and evening canapés and aperitifs for executive guests. And, the new Alto, occupying the entire 25th floor of the hotel is an amazing venue for meetings and private events featuring a private reception area, study, meeting space and a roof top outdoor terrace with panoramic views of Melbourne. And when it's time to mix business and leisure, whether travel tastes run from wine and food festivals to theater and arts or sports events, there's always something special on the calendar in Melbourne.
