This modern property overlooking historical buildings (19th century St. Paul’s Cathedral and Melbourne Town Hall) is stylish from the get go; the slick lobby has an Art Deco feel with a curving metal staircase and dark tiled floors, and the hotel’s art collection includes notable Australian artists such as Bill Henson. The 262 rooms are spacious and restrained in mostly cream and white, but floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the city views. The Allegro restaurant serves contemporary cuisine — grab a pre-dinner drink at the Martini Bar, which also serves tapas, or the Lobby Lounge with dark wood panel walls, comfy sofas and a fireplace.
In the Area
Melbourne’s Collins Street is lined with excellent examples of ornate Victorian architecture. Not only is it the location of the city’s high end stores (Prada, Cartier, Gucci, Max Mara, Chanel), it is the heart of the business district from Elizabeth Street to King Street (the southern hemisphere’s tallest office building, Rialto Towers, is also here). International theater can be seen at Athenaeum and Regent Theater. On Collins and Swanston, look for popular piece of public art, Larry La Trobe, a quirky bronze statue of a dog by Pamela Irving.
How to Get There
I was injured during my stay.
The ice and wheelchair were prepared and it was very helpful.
Thank you very much for your kind response.
When I arrived, the Japanese staff responded and I was able to check in smoothly.
If you have the opportunity to visit Melbourne again, I would like to use it again.
Had a very enjoyable stay as usual!! Great location, excellent facilities and well appointed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Always enjoy returning to the Westin Melbourne when I visit Melbourne, for business or pleasure.
We stayed for only one night but would love to go back for a weekend. We had missed the entrance & ended up going around for another 20 minutes to return! Trams & hook turns don’t bring out the best in us! The manager was kind to send us a bottle of champagne for our 17th wedding anniversary. It was a lovely surprise & we enjoyed it.
