An alternative to formulaic big city hotels, United Places Botanic Gardens sits in the centre of South Yarra, opposite the parklands of the Royal Botanic Gardens, and describes itself as ‘a place of connection and rest in the vast and sprawling city that is Melbourne.’
“There’s been raft of recent hotel openings that are changing the way corporate and leisure travellers stay in Australian cities,” says Sarah Bush, Director of The Travel Authority Group.
“From The Calile and The Fantauzzo in Brisbane, to United Places Botanic Gardens in Melbourne and many more in between, exciting things are happening. Our clients love the distinctive guest experiences these places serve up. We look forward to more hotels with personality opening this year.”
This all-suite property offers 12 spacious rooms each of which boasts a private terrace, a well-equipped kitchen and a minibar stocked with local produce and Sullivans Cove malt whisky.
Suites are offered in the following configurations:
- Urban Suite (One Bedroom)
- Urban Penthouse (One Bedroom)
- Garden Suite (One & Two Bedroom)
- Garden Penthouse (One & Two Bedroom)
At street level, Matilda is a wood-fired restaurant created by leading chef Scott Pickett—Saint Crispin, Estelle and ESP—serves up contemporary Australian food cooked over open fire and hot coals.
