We often stay here if we are out at a function or show in the city (Melbourne). The location is great, and the rooms are lovely, particularly in The Retreat on the 8th floor where the evening canapés and drinks are a great way to start the night. The club also consistent deals wonderfully with our son who has significant...

It was pretty good that I couldn't complain for the price and nothing actually wrong with it besides the room service. I just felt the level of luxury could have maybe been amped up a little bit as I am used to 5 star hotels but again for the price I guess it matched it well. I didn't check out...

Nice ambience and friendly service. Knowing the RACV from its older building and position, it has really progressed with fantastic facilities and opportunities to interact. Always enjoy being invited. The challenge will be to keep the facility special and very well maintained. Takes money and a lot of managerial focus. I do hope that they are successful

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
