I stayed at the Intercontinental for 5 nights on business. Firstly the hotel is well situated on Collins avenue, and 5 minutes’ walk from the South Bank. As you walk in to the hotel, you are greeted by door man, the hotel has a very upmarket feel and its well-presented. Check in was nice an easy, the front desk were... More

Unfortunately our stay at the Rialto was grossly disappointing. We stayed a single night in a junior suite. Due to early check in the booking was initially paid against my personal debit card however as the stay was being paid for by my partners business I was informed that on her arrival it would be all adjusted onto the company's...

This hotel in the central Melbourne CBD has it all. Great location, professional and courteous staff and spacious rooms. If there's one very minor issue its the position of the TV in the room. But otherwise the feel and comfort level is superb

Business trip to Melbourne, staff were very welcoming on arrival and accommodated a special request for room made by me. Rooms were very large, great lighting. Good bathroom size, good robes, good everything. Only issue was bed felt like two king singles. Hotel were very helpful when I realised I had left my laptop cord at the hotel and covered... More

Booked Intercontinental Rialto at the last minute for a cold rainy busy weekend in Melbourne. Was not our first preference but price point won over the Westin due to the fact that we had to book two rooms as our grown children were travelling with us on this occasion. No hotel driveway so taxi drops you on the street which... More

We recently stayed at the Intercontinental in Melbourne, Australia. The facility had an interesting design and was two old buildings converted into one facility with a big atrium. The atmosphere was nice, and the rooms were comfy. There could be a little noise in the atrium, but it usually cut off by 9 or 10 p.m., so if your room... More

Recently stayed here for only one night. Arrived quite late at night and everything was easy. We even had our room upgraded to a huge suite with two bathrooms and a separate living area! Great service and well located.

I stayed here previously and was disappointed with Club Room and dinning room service. My recent visit with my wife on business to say the least was awesome. The service was second to none, dining room, staff and overall feel was memorable. At the time we visited with the Asian Cup soccer teams staying in the hotel. However the staff... More

Stayed midweek for 3 nights. Great location, right in the middle of Melbourne. Staff very professional and friendly, upgraded upon arrival. Nice touch. Rooms were large and very clean. Bar was good, didn't eat in so can't review. Would I stay again? Yes. Only issue was the cost of car valet. Very expensive, but I do suppose it's the CBD... More
