Continuing the hotel’s philosophy of local connection, Crowne Plaza Hobart adds to Hobart’s vibrant culinary scene with two restaurants, core restaurant and bar and THE DECK, led by esteemed local Executive Chef, John Churchill. Chef John instills a powerful farm-to-table philosophy with a focus on small batch suppliers and low waste processes, including a partnership with Macquarie Point’s ‘Edible Precinct’ where organic waste will be dehydrated and composted to fuel the rooftop gardens.
Guests staying at the hotel will enjoy the connected advantages of a modern hotel, with touch-pad controls and sustainable bathroom amenities, as well as stylish touches that echo the Tasmanian landscape and the forestry history seen through timber accents and complementing textures.
Originally planned to open in March 2020 but postponed due to recent global events, the delayed opening of Crowne Plaza Hobart has allowed for implementation of enhanced cleanliness measures, supported by the global rollout of IHG’s Way of Clean and Clean Promise announced in May. At the same time, the hotel still upholds the sustainable commitment it has strived to create, including touchless transaction, sanitation stations, laundry best practise and assigning rooms with social distancing in mind.
