Former Habitat HQ general manager Anna Heaton has been appointed assistant general manager of Melbourne’s 700-bed Hotel Discovery. She joins new general manager Matt Butta, who recently returned to Melbourne after a stint as general manager at London’s award-winning boutique hostel Palmers Lodge.
Heaton told Thumbrella: “Matt is in his fifth week and I’m on day four! The owners are prepared to invest in the property and some renovations have already begun. Matt and I see massive potential at the property which also has a bar, café, function rooms, job agency and travel desk. Watch this space.”
