We recently holidayed in Tasmania and on the way home on the boat we thought we would treat ourselves to something special before the long drive home to Sydney.
On arrival we were greeted by a lovley man "Ian" who kindly valet parked our car. He was most chatty and very helpful with plenty of information to help us get around Melbourne.
As a starwood priviledge member we also recieved an upgrade to our room.
On arrival to our room it was beautifully presented, very clean and as the Westin has a reputation for their 'heavenly' beds this would certainly encourage me to stay again due to the most comfortable bed.
John at concierge was most helpful and kindly made an appointment for me to have my hair done at this amazing hairdresser 'Falconies' just close by to the hotel.
Our room service ordered was presented hot and very tasty. Great range on the menu.
Our High Tea in the lobby was divine!
You can't miss the high tea with the Champagne! We have experienced many high teas around the world and this would have to be one of the best... Extremely impressed !!
The only improvement I would like to see for my next visit is a plasma or larger tv of some description in the room. TV looked a little tired. For a five star hotel I think this is most needed.
We loved being so close to all the theatres, concierge again was most helpful in securing us tickets.
Well worth a visit to Melbourne to experience this most pleasurable five star hotel experience.
