If you're the type of traveller — or staycationer — who chooses their hotels for the perks and extra inclusions, then you'll be particularly excited about the latest addition to Melbourne's accommodation offerings. Originally slated to launch in May, Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer has now opened its doors, marking the Swiss brand's second site in Australia, after Mövenpick Hotel Hobart.

And if either the chain's name or its country of origin have you thinking of sweet treats, yes; they're very much part of the hotel's menu.

For starters, Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne is celebrating chocolate hour every afternoon, from 3.30–4.30pm. That's when guests can tuck into complimentary desserts ranging from mini ice cream cones, to chocolate petit fours, to ice cream sandwiches.

You can even dial up the indulgence factor with a few chocolate cocktails or the signature chocolate ice cream parfait.

Mövenpick's hotels all serve the brand's line of food and beverages as well, which means that Mövenpick ice cream is also available. Also onsite, you'll find the dedicated Mövenpick Cafe, along with newly opened modern Asian restaurant Miss Mi, which is plating up a bold, vibrant menu by Head Chef Esca Khoo (Dinner by Heston, Longrain, Lûmé).

The 172-room hotel will sate your appetite for style, too, its elegantly appointed suites boasting premium linens, photography works from the likes of Steve Scalone and Sean Mcdonald, and contemporary bathrooms complete with rain showers and Yuni Beauty products.

And those wanting to work off any overindulgences can hit the hotel's dedicated recreation floor, home to a 25-metre swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and gym.

Housed within the new 78-storey Premier Tower development on Spencer Street, Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne is one of more than 80 of the brand's accommodation sites worldwide.

Find Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer at 160 Spencer Street, Melbourne. Head to the Accor website for bookings and other information.
