I have stayed here probably half a dozen times now and I have never been dissapointed. The staff are professional and guest focused and the rooms are modern and very clean. The pool/spa/gym are also good. My husband loved the range of whiskey available in the Market Lane bar and we were served complimentary nibbles with our drinks and the breakfast alone is worth a visit - the best I have ever experienced anywhere. I have only a few very small observations that left me unable to give it a 5 star review. On arrival the valet was busy so we had to wait to hand our keys over, the chlorine in the spa is extremely strong so anyone with sensitive skin be warned!! On our last visit our newspaper wasn't delivered and although I called guest services to request one, it still didn't arrive. Also when the hotel is busy I would advise you go to breakfast a bit earlier as I have seen guests have to eat at the bar or wait for a table during peak times. The hotel is an easy walk to the casino but its probably not the best choice if hitting the shops is your thing. Overall though this is my favourite hotel and worth the money for a quiet and relaxing break.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Celebrated as one of the world’s hottest and best new hotels by both Conde Nast Traveler and Wallpaper* magazines, InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto is a fascinating example of the city’s fusion of old and new. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto represents the resurrection of one of the city’s last remaining examples of 19th Century Victorian Gothic architecture into a timeless and inspiring luxury hotel. Its city centre location on Collins Street is at the heart of the laneways, attractions and experiences that give Melbourne its international appeal. Behind the Gothic façade is a sleek yet intimate hotel that is home to two very different bars – the Bluestone Wine Lounge and the Market Lane Bar – and a variety of dining establishments, including Alluvial Restaurant and Guy Grossi’s exciting new venture, Merchant. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has also teamed up with Shannon Bennett, providing valet parking for his new Vue de monde restaurant on the 55th floor of the adjacent Rialto building. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto’s warmth and exceptional service belies its size, with more than 250 guest rooms across two soaring wings, including a stunning collection of suites as well as the exclusive Club InterContinental lounge and facilities for premium guests. The hotel’s rooftop is also a destination itself, home to the kitchen’s own market garden and beehives, the Scandinavian-inspired swimming pool and the glass-encased fitness centre overlooking the Melbourne cityscape. Also available is the luxurious candle-lit East Day Spa offering east-meets-west treatments and therapies. Before guests arrive, they can take advantage of the concierges’ passion and Insider knowledge of the city. Chief Concierge, James Ridenour and his team are the key to authentic experiences of the real Melbourne and everything the city has to offer. ... more less
