Melbourne winter hotel special is a sparkling affair


Winter in Melbourne can be seriously chilly but Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street has launched a bubbly package to make the season just a little more bearable.

The heritage-listed hotel has partnered with Champagne House Pommery to launch a "Winter Wonderland" package.

Think a king deluxe room transformed with candles, twinkling fairy lights and white fur-lined walls, along with a bespoke white and cream floral installation by florist Victoria Whitelaw. 

And while I have not sampled this package, hotel GM Jeremy Healy is one of the best in the business and certain to ensure it is a success. 

The Winter Wonderland package, available to book from now until August 31, includes a complimentary bottle of Pommery Apanage Blanc de Blancs NV and macarons, along with a Pommery embroidered guest robe and sustainable bamboo slippers.

Guests will also enjoy breakfast for two at the hotel’s restaurant Luci, housed in the grand foyer of what was once Melbourne’s Equity Chambers building.

Prices for the package start from $444 including early che-in and late check-out, so share with someone special. 

Luci will serve a Winter Wonderland menu throughout the season featuring steak tartare, popcorn chicken, oysters and caviar, all accompanied by a glass of Pommery Brut Royal NV, with the option to upgrade to Pommery Apanage Blanc de Blancs NV should you wish.

At The Douglas Club, the hotel lounge bar, two limited-edition Pommery-infused cocktail creations will be served. 

The first, Tarte Tatin, is a melange of Pierre Huet Calvados, fino sherry, cinnamon syrup, Reposado, topped with Pommery Champagne; and second, It’s Summer in France, a blend of Australian-made Gospel Straight Rye, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, honey syrup, Pommery Champagne, crystallised verbena and mint.
