Tree-lined Collins Street sits at the centre of Melbourne, and the modern Sofitel Melbourne On Collins, located at the prestigious ‘Paris end’ of Collins Street, provides the perfect home base surrounded by galleries and gardens, architectural masterpieces and the city’s finest attractions.
Bed and Bath
The 363 guest rooms and suites are decorated in rich cream palettes and feature floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. Uber-comfortable beds are complimented by a pillow menu and bedside mood lighting control. Marble bathrooms featured luxe French products from Roger & Gallet.
Sofi’s Lounge offers tea and snacks all day, as well as a high tea service starting at 2:30pm. Breakfast buffets are presented at No35 restaurant with floor to ceiling views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay, and also offers a modern Australian menu for dinner. Pre-dinner drinks are a must in the Atrium Bar on 35 under a fifteen-floor mirrored canopy.
In the Area
From the Paris end of Melbourne’s main tree-lined boulevard, Collins Street, you’re well placed to explore the city’s riches – elegant buildings, churches, theatres, gardens, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and more. Try one of city’s hot no-bookings restaurants, Mamasita for Mexican taqueria, Melbourne style. While global luxury brands with flagship stores and exclusive jewelers adorn Collins Street, slip onto Flinders Lane and Little Collins Street for quirky boutiques and sophisticated local designers, like Scanlan and Theodore. Collins Quarter bar and restaurant is the unofficial barometer of the city’s financial health. If it’s pumping, so is the economy.
How to Get There
I knew if we stayed here we would be looked after. We came to Melbourne for a funeral and had a junior suite with a view of the bay, a complimentary upgrade to executive dining ( thank you so much) and a late checkout. I’m an Accor Silver member. We also used our free night. Although it’s now an older property, the service, the views, the bed all so good. Thank you to Yosha and her team in executive dining. Kathy remembered our coffee order from the day before. Jesse in the Atrium bar also demonstrated exceptional service. It’s the little things, the great hairdryer, pillows and everyone in their own way doing that little extra that makes staying here a pleasure. Looking forward to seeing an upgrade to align it with the other hotels in the Sofitel portfolio.
I had been unable to use an accommodation voucher during the year that I received for Christmas last year. Tried to book today and discovered that it was dated for early December and was therefore just out of date. Called the Sofitel and was told I could not use the voucher. My boss usually purchases quite a number of these vouchers from teh Sofitel each year as Christmas presents. No longer going to be doing this and don't recommend anyone else doing the same. Service is everything.
Fantastic weekend at the Sofitel Melbourne the personal service was amazing from Anne who helped me with my complicated booking and requests and Yasmin at Club Sofitel who makes us feel special everytime we stay in Melbourne nothing is to much trouble.
A terrific overnight escape. Excellent service, quality bedding and bay views that can’t be beaten. Location is in easy walking distance to central shopping areas We are looking forward to returning in the near future!
This is a lovely hotel where everyone treats you as though you are special. A very comfortable bed and luxurious surroundings made it an enjoyable stay. The added bonus of breakfast, which was excellent, made it even better!
