MELBOURNE - The Langham, Melbourne is expanding its patronage of Melbourne's vibrant arts scene with a partnership with Arts Centre Melbourne. The elegant hotel recently formalised an official hotel partnership with the iconic Arts Centre, to coincide with Hamer Hall's reopening this week after a dazzling $128.5 million renovation. With its location on the banks of the Yarra River, just a short walk away from the arts precinct and linked to the Arts Centre by Southgate and Yarra Boulevard, The Langham, Melbourne is the ideal accommodation for performing arts patrons.
"We are delighted to announce our exclusive hotel partnership with the Arts Centre," Mr Ben Sington, Managing Director of The Langham, Melbourne said.
