The Westin in Melbourne does everything you expect of a 5 star hotel. From the start the staff at the front door greet you with a welcoming smile and check in too is efficient, quick and friendly. With a room available, an early check in was no problem. The standard room was spacious, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you would expect. Bathroom too was spacious with double vanity and separate shower and bathtub. There is a gym and indoor pool. Well located for Melbourne shops and CBD. Can be a bit noisy with the trams rattling along Swanston Street and on weekends the nearby Federation Square generates a bit of amplified sound. Only complaint was the breakfast omelet had the fluffiness of a frittata. Would recommend you consider the Westin if you want a 5 star city experience

Having booked a weekend there I realised that Les Miserables was on and tried to get tickets. All sold out at the Ticket agencies and nothing online from resellers. Then I remembered a film where the concierge could just about procure anything. So i thought why not and gave the concierge desk a call. Leave it with me said Paul. 24 hours later and Steve rang to say they had not only got 2 tickets but front of dress circle. Unbelievable, probably the best tickets in the house - My wife loved the show and you know the saying Happy Wife - Happy Life :)
What about the room though- immaculate, super comfy bed, huge bathroom with deep bath and heavenly shower. Perfectly situated hotel - we will be back

Room Tip: Get a room with a view ousr 513 was great

Everything about this hotel was great. From the time we pulled into the driveway the staff could not have done better. The room / balcony over looked the church, was a decent size and spotless clean (I think we may have been upgraded).
The location was good and the ambience of this hotel was perfect.
We will stay again

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony to get some fresh air flowing

Very good hotel in the heart of the business district in Melbourne. Rooms are tip top and staff are friendly and professional, even by Westin's superior standards. Wifi is free in public areas and available for a fee in the rooms. I found the rates a but high for the speed offered, but this is a small complaint in an otherwise excellent stay, including opulent breakfast buffet and catered meals for business meetings.

The Westin in Melbourne is excellent. From the moment we arrived were were warmly greeted by everyone we came across. Our bags were quickly deilvered to our room, all doors openned for us and everything clearly and efficiently explained.

The hotel is nicely appointed - the green tea aroma is lovely! There is artwork in every room and also in the hotel lobby.

Our room was larger than expected although didn't have the best view in the world, but then we had gone for the cheaper option so you expect this. The room had tea and coffee facilities, an enormous spacious bathroom with built in sound from the television. All amenities you would expect.

The spa area was very nice - not filled with children as one of the other reviewers mentioned. The steam room and sauna were also very good.

The location of the Westin is great - walking distance to all of the main attractions and shopping streets.

The rooms and facilities are great, but the staff in the hotel really make the experience. They were warm, curteous, friendly and charming at all times and really went out of their way to make us feel at home and cater to our needs.

I would definitely return.

Dear reviewer. Thank you for your uplifting review. The swimming pool is certainly something special even visually it is really a work of art on how this pool was designed in the space. It is very popular along with the steam and sauna rooms. Don’t forget the Westin Workout gym is open 24hrs for that late night workout.
We are pleased to provide a refreshing sanctuary in an unbeatable location. We are delighted we delivered personal and instinctive service that we are known for. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to the Westin Melbourne. During your next stay, perhaps download our SPG App for easy booking and with our latest special offers. Be well.

Excellent. From the first minute to the last time we walked out the door, just stunning.

Staff were professional and friendly. I think I spooked the poor young lady at reception by arriving with two women though!

The room was immaculate. We had a King Superior facing the theatre, but despite the lack of view (didn't worry us) the room was incredible. Massive rain shower and deep bath, and I love Westin's Heavenly Bed. I wish I could stay at Westin hotels everywhere I go.

Congratulations once again Westin!

The rooms are very modern, clean and high quality. Beds are comfortable (generally all the Starwood hotels have very comfy beds). Spacious lobby with high ceilings. Locations is pretty good (adjacent to Federation Square and close to all the good restaurants). The gym was above expectations as it was spacious and new equipment. The only con is that it does not have a club lounge but this is due to the size of the hotel. The service was friendly and helpful. No complaints. We came here for our honeymoon and received a nice welcome gift from the manager.

Room Tip: Higher the better.
