Visitors to Hume City and locals alike have a new way to stay and play in style from the moment they land with the opening of the luxurious Novotel and Ibis Styles Melbourne Airport. 

The $230 million project is the first new-build internationally branded hotel to open at Melbourne Airport in more than two decades, meaning big things for the local economy. 

Hume City Council welcomes the more than 200 jobs the development has created locally, and what the addition of a new luxury hotel means for our city. 

Tipped to become a favourite for those on a trip to Melbourne, the hotel boasts 464 rooms, three conference spaces including a ballroom and the airport's first co-working space, a café and two restaurants, and the airport's first health and wellbeing club that features an indoor heated pool, sauna, spa and fitness centre. 

Excitingly, the new build offers an incentive for travellers to stay and explore all that’s on offer in Hume’s growing tourism scene. 

With access to amazing wineries, multi-cultural dining experiences, attractions such as the iconic URBNSURF, elite sports events and large-scale entertainment, Hume’s Visitor Economy continues to grow and help drive visitation and employment to keep our city thriving. 

To maintain this economic growth, Council supports the Visitor Economy through the facilitation of diverse tourism investments, existing business expansion, destination marketing, business engagement and development, employment support and advocacy. 

Having this major development land at Melbourne Airport opens the door for local businesses to partner with Novotel/IBIS Styles, and Council looks forward to helping foster these relationships and having everyday visitors to Melbourne truly Discover Hume.
