The Great Room

W Melbourne

Spanning 426 sqm of pillarless space, the Great Room is the jewel in the crown and the largest of W Melbourne’s event spaces. The newest events offering in the city will bring together an abundance of natural light through floor to ceiling windows overlooking Flinders Lane & Williams Street and plays on the unmistakable colour pallet of Australia’s cultural capital in autumn. 

A 4m x 5m LED wall has been installed at one end to deliver sound, light, and elevated visuals that will bring any event to life. 

A large original artwork by local Melbourne artist, Ash Keating acts as the centrepiece of the Great Room and spans nearly 30 metres across the ceiling. This piece is evocative of an earthy and golden Australian landscape from an aerial perspective. Keating returned to a method of painting titled ‘Natural System Response’ to accomplish this, spraying red copper and gold pigments onto a wet textured surface which was then theatrically lit before capturing the image. The artwork is set to captivate guests and elevate events held in the space. 

Whatever⁄Whenever®

Sorry Shakira, it’s Whatever⁄Whenever®, not Whenever, Wherever!

To ensure a seamless experience, a skilled team of W talent is on hand to tailor your next event. The iconic W Hotels Whatever⁄Whenever® philosophy is at the forefront and promises to make any request a reality.
