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
In Melbourne again for a special family. Our large spacious comfortable room with king size bed overlooking Swanson St was all we could wish for. The ground floor lounges were perfect spots for family rendezvous with drinks and the first floor restaurant was perfect for breakfast, which I recommend you negotiate into your tariff. All staff want to help, without fuss. I recommend without qualification.
Haven’t stayed here for a few years and was a little dubious about the metro tunnel works out the front. However, it wasn’t loud.
Room was set out well, spacious and clean.
Remains best central hotel in Melbourne in my opinion
Generally the hotel provides good and prompt services when requested. The housekeeping staff are doing a marvelous task to keep the room clean and well organized. Breakfast is good and like the sourdough bread, fresh taste all the time. Overall great job!
This is a fabulous hotel in a brilliant location in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. The staff are consummate hospitality professionals who made us feel extremely welcome and tended to our every need. Recommend to all couples.
I stayed recently at The Westin Melbourne. As always the service was impeccable with the entire team at the hotel working together to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The breakfast buffet and proximity to so many great clubs and restaurants are highlights.
