This is the Grand Hotel of Melbourne.
I know some people have given poor reviews- I suspect they have stayed in the lowest priced rooms.
If you intend staying here, stay in a "better" room- "Superior" level or above.
Avoid the temptation to stay in a cheaper "Traditional" room- it's a recipe for disappointment.
It's a lovely, gracious hotel, with wonderful staff, who remember your name, and greet you on your return.
The ambience is that of a grand hotel of the past. To some extent, this is dated, but that is part of the charm.
Certainly, the standard of the better rooms is acceptable, and their pricing is quite aggessive and attractive, in terms of offering you realistic value for money.
The high tea is an expensive indulgence- enjoy it once for a splurge.
The 111 Spring Street Restaurant is a beautiful dining room. The service is friendly and professional.
You don't see too many hotels like the Windsor these days- it's an experience worth having! A good place for a romantic weekend, or a special occasion- the theater district is nearby.
