Great hotel in a great city!

Jul 18th, 2020

This hotel has such an incredible ambiance, given the architectural history and modern updating of the giant atrium that unites two older buildings, and the modern updating of the rooms. Would stay here in a heartbeat the next time in Melbourne. Great location, great breakfast, comfortable bed, nice pool. Friendly and very helpful staff. The tram on the street outside are free to get around the city. Best hotel of our visit to AUS/NZ! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Intercontinental Hotel. Former Rialto Buildings

May 10th, 2020

The is another one of the prominent architect William Pitt buildings. Like the Olderfleet Building at 477 Collins Street it was built for prominent businessman Patrick Mc Caughan between 1890-1891. It is built in Venetian Gothic palazzo style.The original bluestone cobblestone laneway which served the carts and wagons delivering wool and other products to the Rialto building warehouses,survives intact on the ground floor of the atrium of the hotel.The 14 storey building part of the hotel complex was part of the redevelopment in 1984. It is one of the finest boom style buildings in Melbourne. The Intercontinental Hotel was the Former Rialto Hotel when I stayed there and before that was the Ex Menzies Hotel. It is a five star hotel and has exclusive shops and before the corona virus had a big white piano in the atrium space. It is on the Victorian Heritage Register and is National Trust classified TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent location

Apr 28th, 2020

Great location, 5-10mins walk to Southern Cross Station, within free tram zone, easily go around CBD without paying. Booked the deluxe room, as a Spire Ambassador, the receptionist claimed the room was upgrade to club room (with no club access tho), did not really see the big differences. Being arranged a room on 5th floor, with the only view of the hotel atrium. Room was set up with one set of bathroom amenities and glasses, one free water per day only. It looked like a room for one person but I booked it for three persons. iPad in the room allowed me to request amenities and looked for hotel info easily. Pool, gym, sauna were all on top floor, indoor pool was pretty small but with a nice Jacuzzi next to it. Sauna and shower room were unisex. No lockers for pool area. Valet parking was great. 55AUD for 24 hours, concierge has asked me the pickup for next day, car was ready in front of the entrance when I collected it. Great service! Breakfast was okay, live station for egg, some hot food and great options for juices and freshly squeezed ones. Celebrating parents anniversary, a sparkling wine was offered on their anniversary date! Very warm and sweet, thank you! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

A memorable hotel.

Apr 14th, 2020

This conveniently located hotel is central to the CBD and the Southbank entertainment and dining Quarter. Unfortunately, the pandemic closedown had just started (F1 Grand Prix weekend). Fortunately, the dining and bar options in the hotel were great and reasonably priced by 5 star hotel standards. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly without being over the top. Check in and out were quick and painless. Rooms were well appointed,though just a little smaller than expected. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Will certainly return once the plague is beaten. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Wonderful accommodation

Apr 5th, 2020

We have stayed at this hotel twice recently and both occassions were very enjoyable. We have stayed once in each side of the hotel with one side being the former Rialto. This room was a huge junior suite with space galour and a well appointed bathroom. The intercontinental side had a smaller but probably more modern and better furnished room. In between is an enormous glassed in atrium which highlights the exterior of each hotel side and has a real industrial look and feel to it. Typical of Melbourne they have incorporated the former heritage of the buildings into a new functional space. At the basement level of this atrium is an extensive bar and restaurant and this includes one of the best breakfast buffets we have experienced in Australia. Food stations are set out in several rooms. There is a wide array of fresh juices, yoghurts and salads and an extensive hot buffet with a chef on hand to prepare fresh omelettes. The coffee is brought to the table and made by a proper barista for a wonderful start to the day. Front desk is very friendly and efficient and there is a concierge on hand to help with your luggage and assist you with your visit to Melbourne. Located close to Spencer Street Station and only a few metres from the tram stop means this hotel is very accessable. Overall an excellent stay and very good value for money. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
