There is something about the Westin that just simply works. The rooms are done in a way that makes you feel like you are somewhere special.
However, it is the staff that really make the difference. They always make sure you feel welcome and it is a great experience.

Room Tip: The tram noise can be a little annoying if you are a light sleeper, request a room that faces away f...

Whilst the Westin in Melbourne is at the upper end of the price bracket, it is definitely worth the extra money. The rooms are excellent with the best bathrooms in Australia (the shower is awesome !!), the Hotel has a very good fitness centre and the restaurant is first class.

Room Tip: The upper rooms seem to get less traffic noise, although the majority of rooms are very quiet.

We went for a long weekend dining, theater and arts experience and were not disappointed. The hotel is excellent and in the perfect position for what we wanted. The rooms were great and the service was high standard. I would certainly stay here again.

Prior to this stay, I was last at the Westin in 2008. I rated it "excellent" then, and have no reason to change my view now.
Check-in was efficient and friendly, and I was delighted to be upgraded to a superior King room on the SPG member's floor. The room itself was huge, with a wonderful bed, and a vast marbled bathroom, with separate bath and shower. The room outlook was towards the corner of Flinders Lane and Swanston Street, a busy precinct, yet there was very little street noise in the room (on the 4th floor). The air-conditioning was quite and remarkably effective, when compared with many hotels I have recently stayed in.
The lounge and bar area on the ground floor is a great place for a coffee or something stronger, and attracts many show business and TV personalities, given the property's proximity to Melbourne's theatre district. I was there the night King Kong opened, in the next-door theatre, and although the hotel was full to bursting, it retained its relaxed and polished demeanour.
The Allegro restaurant is excellent...for breakfast, and, more formally, for dinner. It needs to be; some of the city's best restaurants are but a short walk away.
I checked out at 5am...no fuss, transport organized, and a friendly smile. What more could I ask for?

Room Tip: Being part of the SPG program is an advantage when it comes to room allocation. Higher floors are qu...

Excellent property,excellent staff,room size was decent with extra bed as we got an upgrade.the entire stay was very welcoming.the people in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.we had breakfast included in our package.the food quality was also good.
the only thing that i was expecting was that it was my husbands birthday during our stay and i asked them to arrange for a cake they actually gave us a muffin size peice..that was a shock.I had asked them to deliver the flowers with the cake at 12 midnight,by mistake they sent it at 2pm.that was sorted but being a gold memeber I expected them to do something special for him..but anyways..excellent place to stay..

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The rooms were excellent, bathrooms clean. What does surprise me is that you have to pay for wifi!!!
Breakfast was good, a big selection of different foods.
The location is perfect, next to the theatre where King Kong was playing. Everything is walking distance. On top of that Melbourne is a beautiful city with great restaurants and a lovely shopping area.

Despite minor gripes from my previous stay, I think this is the best hotel in Melbourne. Arrival and greeting in taxi excellent, including an unexpected and much appreciated record of the taxi number in case I had forgotten something. Checkin was warm, friendly and very quick. Standard rooms here are spacious, modern, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom, which I think says a lot about a hotel, is gigantic and just beautiful, with large, soft, multiple white towels, top notch toiletries, and nice lighting. The bed is a proper, honest King size, and extremely comfortable. Unlike many hotels, you don't hear doors slamming. Location is unbeatable. Check out very friendly and I felt a bit sad to be leaving.
