We stayed here for two nights recently whilst in Melbourne for the weekend. I chose The Hotel Windsor due to the location at the Parisian end of the city (and proximity to the MCG), and the great reviews. The hotel is excellent, we liked:
- 5 minutes walk to some of the best laneway hotspots (both cumulus and chinchin very close) on little collins st and flinders lane, and only 10 minutes to the Bourke St Mall
- Walking distance to the MCG and just above parliament station
- The staff were extremely helpful and friendly for our stay. Early check in was a breeze, we did upgrade to a King room for some extra space and a better view
- Gorgeous decor with historic elements shining through
It is an older style hotel though, so we found the queen room to be very small (more european hotel room size) so we upgraded to a larger room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Windsor is Australia’s most loved and recognised grand hotel. Built in 1883 during the Victorian era and pre-dating other notable hotels such as The Savoy, Waldorf Astoria, Ritz Paris and The Plaza Hotel, it set a benchmark for style, elegance, sophistication and charm which remains ever present today. The hotel is located in Melbourne’s most central and fashionable district. Its location is in close proximity to the corporate, financial and designer heart of Melbourne. Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance. The hotel is located 20km from Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport, with a traveling time of between 20-45 minutes. Parliament train station and tram stops including the City Circle route are located at the hotel’s doorstep. ... more less
