My wife and I stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and in a fantastic location for exploring Melbourne. It is within walking distance from many of the key sites and attractions as well as several excellent restaurants. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would love to come back again!

Stayed here during the Australian Open and couldn't have asked for a better deal. The hotel is clean, larger rooms, and well kept up. We walked (15-20 min) to the tournament and to dinner along the river, the aquarium and shops. We loved that there was an indoor pool, and while I wasn't expecting a Four Seasons, I was pleasantly...

Stayed at The Westin Melbourne for one night with my partner - a night on the town to celebrate her birthday. Chose the city view room package inclusive of valet parking and breakfast.

This is the third time I've stayed here and standards have been well maintained. The rooms are sizeable and well kept. I've always liked the Westin bed although some of my friends have commentated they find it a touch soft. The only drawback was breakfast, which lacked variety. After your second day, you begin to appreciate just heading out to... More

Few hotels truly impress. This one did. Faultless service. Stayed here twice over a week, went to wilsons prom in the middle. Where do I start- superb location, minutes from fed square. As SPG gold, got early checkin, late checkout and better room on higher SPG floor, no hassles. When we first arrived, the doorman knew us already and that... More

The perfect place to come home to after a romantic dinner date. We enjoyed cocktails at the martini bar downstairs which were amazing. The room is huge, king size bed and all the bells and whistles to go with it. We would definately come again. Cheers
