Five of the Best Hotels in Melbourne

Ah, Melbourne. If you love culture in all its forms, whether it’s art, music, great food, fashion, architecture, or anything else, Melbourne is the Australian destination for you. Melbourne’s blend of old-world charm and new-world cool will prove delightful to even the most seasoned traveler, as there’s something for everyone to see. Its five best luxury hotels are no less varied – each one has its distinctive appeal and aesthetic, yet all share a dedication to perfect service, attentiveness to detail, and commitment to your best possible experience of Melbourne.

Crown Towers Hotel

A spa and jacuzzi, casino, gymnasium, business meeting facilities and high-speed internet are just some of the luxuries offered by Crown Towers. As the most traditional, solid luxury hotel, Crown Towers is perfect for people who want to be pampered a little bit (or a lot bit!) during their stay. Views of the bay and river from your window don’t hurt either, nor do the six Crown Towers Exclusive Restaurants, specializing in the finest food. Crown Towers also has its quirks; it is also the only luxury hotel in Melbourne with its own bowling alley. [Images by CrownTowers]

Chateau Yering

If you’re looking for something a little ways outside the city, surrounded by trees and sunshine, Chateau Yering is your kind of luxury hotel. A Victorian mansion set in the pristine Yarra valley, its award-winning gardens are a delight to wake up to each morning, as are the suites, each uniquely decorated with antique furniture. Some of its extra luxuries include a tennis court, vineyards, world-class restaurants, cozy lounges with open fireplaces, and a petanque lawn court. Perfect for the old-world country lady or gentleman inside you! [Images by ChateauYering]

The Windsor

The only remaining 19th century Grand Hotel left in Melbourne, The Windsor is stately, distinctive and unique with its Renaissance Revival architecture and twin mansard roofed towers. One of the most recognizable landmarks in the city, you will get a rush of that old-world charm every time you walk inside. It is set across from the Parliament building, and provides access to all the downtown shops and restaurants. If that’s not enough, the Windsor has received innumerable national and international awards for hospitality, design, and overall class, ensuring that it will remain a staple of the Melbourne luxury hotel scene for years to come.

Park Hyatt

Artsy, bold, and different, the Park Hyatt is not your grandparents’ luxury hotel! Sleek curves and warm sophistication combine the best parts of modern architecture and five-star hospitality. In addition a world-class European restaurant, Health Center, and colonnaded sandstone indoor pool, it contains hundreds of specially-commissioned works of art from contemporary artists all around Melbourne. This is a case where a picture is worth a thousand words, so if style and unique character appeal to you, look for some pictures of the Park Hyatt online. You will not be disappointed!

Sofitel Melbourne

If you’re a panoramic view type of person, if your vacations consist in large part of sitting out on the balcony with a cup of tea and watching the beauty and commerce of the world go by, the Sofitel is the perfect five-star luxury hotel for you. Set in the perfect spot along the Yarra River, you get equal parts flowing river and Melbourne skyline while you sip your morning beverage of choice. Walk outside the hotel doors and you’re immediately on the world-famous Southbank Promenade, nestled among fashionable boutiques, cafes, and galleries. The Sofitel experience is, in a word, magical, and perfect for a romantic getaway in Melbourne. [Images by SofitelMelbourne]
