The Rialto was fantastically located for my family's three day stay in Melbourne. The rooms were very nice, and nothing was left out…other than free wifi! The shower was so cool, the TV speaker in the bathroom was the first I'd seen, the Bose radio and AUX plug was awesome, and as football-obsessed American travelers, it was so refreshing to finally watch ESPN! Breakfast was very well-done with so many selections (and they even had a juicer!) and the concierge gave us great recommendations. I made use of the handy-dany jogging route map on my run along the river, so thank you! The gym was great (free weights, treadmills, ellipticals, benches, machines) and the pool/hot tub area was very nice and had a lot of towels right there. The inside of the hotel is just beautiful. The only item left out is that you have to buy internet access for each 24 hour period, or you could use 30 minutes free in the lobby, but only once per device. Other than that, it was a great experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Celebrated as one of the world’s hottest and best new hotels by both Conde Nast Traveler and Wallpaper* magazines, InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto is a fascinating example of the city’s fusion of old and new. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto represents the resurrection of one of the city’s last remaining examples of 19th Century Victorian Gothic architecture into a timeless and inspiring luxury hotel. Its city centre location on Collins Street is at the heart of the laneways, attractions and experiences that give Melbourne its international appeal. Behind the Gothic façade is a sleek yet intimate hotel that is home to two very different bars – the Bluestone Wine Lounge and the Market Lane Bar – and a variety of dining establishments, including Alluvial Restaurant and Guy Grossi’s exciting new venture, Merchant. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has also teamed up with Shannon Bennett, providing valet parking for his new Vue de monde restaurant on the 55th floor of the adjacent Rialto building. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto’s warmth and exceptional service belies its size, with more than 250 guest rooms across two soaring wings, including a stunning collection of suites as well as the exclusive Club InterContinental lounge and facilities for premium guests. The hotel’s rooftop is also a destination itself, home to the kitchen’s own market garden and beehives, the Scandinavian-inspired swimming pool and the glass-encased fitness centre overlooking the Melbourne cityscape. Also available is the luxurious candle-lit East Day Spa offering east-meets-west treatments and therapies. Before guests arrive, they can take advantage of the concierges’ passion and Insider knowledge of the city.
