“Excellent location - "girls weekend"”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Stayed for girl's weekend in superior room. Initially disappointed with the room as was very small. As we were staying for 3 nights I asked for a larger room. This was accommodated at no extra cost for the following 2 nights (the 1st night of stay the hotel was completely booked). Very clean, comfortable beds and choice of pillows upon request. Best to request higher floor, in quiet area. No free Wi-fi (pity as most hotel these days at least offer free in lobby area). Staff friendly and helpful, excellently located (close to Elizabeth St therefore easy to catch train), walk to Flinders St Station, South Bank, the CBD. Catching a tram is easy - stop outside hotel. Walking distance to Degraves St - great food. I would recommend hotel and stay again.

Room Tip: If staying in superior room, best to request larger room on 9th floor as quiet. Do not stay on 2nd...

The staff are very helpful and always greet you with a smile.
The hotel is a beautiful heritage listed building and the room I stayed in was spectacular! Like nothing I've ever stayed in before!
Once again the staff were very nice and when I requested stuff such as an extra towel etc room service would be at my room within seconds.
Will defiantly stay ever Melbourne visit as it's central to everything and has amazing views!

I have stayed here several times now, usually during the film festival. Staff are always friendly and very helpful,the rooms are always very clean, comfortable beds (with awesome pillows) and have nice size bathrooms. I have been in several different rooms, and both the heritage and modern rooms have their own positives, just depends what decor and television you prefer. Both have a good work area if you have to set the laptop up, their internet service was good. This hotel is on busy Flinders Street, so you can expect noise (but then again, you are in the centre of Melbourne, so if you prefer quiet, my recommendation is always to go somewhere like Dubbo instead). Public areas are great, nice comfy chairs on the ground floor and the bar upstairs has a great, sophisticated atmosphere. The little historical details through the hotel are worth exploring too. Gym isn't well appointed, but why do you want to spend too much time in there anyway? My favourite hotel in Melbourne.

Room Tip: Better natural light in the rooms facing Flinders Street, otherwise they can be quite dark (and cosy...

Beautiful hotel in all aspects apart from a minor niggly problem Upon entering or leaving your room a ceiling light comes on. That would be ok during the day and evening but as its on a sensor it goes on in the middle of the night if one goes to the bathroom and lights the whole room. The light cannot be fully turned off. Also as my partner doesn't sleep a lot with bedclothes over them, by moving ones feet or legs, the light came on too!!
Was advised by front desk the light could be covered by duct tape by maintenance, however that was declined by us as tape can melt and set off smoke detectors.

I have just returned from staying at the Rendezvous Grand for the weekend with my sister. The hotel was just lovely, with beautiful old world charm. Although our room was small, it was clean, well appointed, and suited us perfectly. It was a little noisy being on the 1st floor, so we could hear the trams, trains etc, but this did not stop us from sleeping well in the extremely comfortable beds. The staff were all amazing, just so friendly and helpful, particularly the concierge staff and the lovely staff member who worked in the bar on Friday and Saturday night. The location of the hotel was perfect for us as we arrived in to Southern Cross Station and enjoyed a leisurely walk around to the hotel on Friday night, then back again to the station on Sunday afternoon. We loved exploring all the laneways around the area and walking around the city and Southbank. Thanks very much for making our weekend away extra special :-)

We were initially in a room that was small, as we were staying for 5 nights we asked if there were other options. We were shown a Heritage room and it was just beautiful. Worth the extra amount. convenient location to Flinders St Station, South Bank, the CBD. Catching a tram is easy as it is nice and close.
The bar downstairs is comfortable and elegant.
We have stayed there 3 times now and have enjoyed it each time. Look forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: River Facing Suite or a Heritage Room. Beautiful high ceilings.
