Celebrated as one of the world’s hottest and best new hotels by both Conde Nast Traveler and Wallpaper* magazines, InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto is a fascinating example of the city’s fusion of old and new. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto represents the resurrection of one of the city’s last remaining examples of 19th Century Victorian Gothic architecture into a timeless and inspiring luxury hotel. Its city centre location on Collins Street is at the heart of the laneways, attractions and experiences that give Melbourne its international appeal. Behind the Gothic façade is a sleek yet intimate hotel that is home to two very different bars – the Bluestone Wine Lounge and the Market Lane Bar – and a variety of dining establishments, including Alluvial Restaurant and Guy Grossi’s exciting new venture, Merchant. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has also teamed up with Shannon Bennett, providing valet parking for his new Vue de monde restaurant on the 55th floor of the adjacent Rialto building. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto’s warmth and exceptional service belies its size, with more than 250 guest rooms across two soaring wings, including a stunning collection of suites as well as the exclusive Club InterContinental lounge and facilities for premium guests. The hotel’s rooftop is also a destination itself, home to the kitchen’s own market garden and beehives, the Scandinavian-inspired swimming pool and the glass-encased fitness centre overlooking the Melbourne cityscape. Also available is the luxurious candle-lit East Day Spa offering east-meets-west treatments and therapies. Before guests arrive, they can take advantage of the concierges’ passion and Insider knowledge of the city. Chief Concierge, James Ridenour and his team are the key to authentic experiences of the real Melbourne and everything the city has to offer.

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.

Full disclosure that I am a Spire Ambassador with the hotel so receive generous upgrades. This trip was no different and we were upgraded from a spa suite to the Brighton Suite (one of the more popular ones). We have also stayed in the Laneway Suite and the Melbourne Suite

The location is great. It is a short walk to Flinders station, and to the restaurant area on Southbank. If you like to walk, you can even walk to the Royal Botanic Garden Victoria (but make sure you have walking shoes on for this). It is also quite close by street art areas,

We stayed for 4 nights as an extra long weekend. Our room was clean, and reasonably quiet overnight. We did hear noise from other rooms, but it wasn’t excessive. The breakfast was great. We didn’t have to wait to place egg orders at the cooking station on any morning. The

Where do I start: 1) hotel directory and other in-room brochures looking very tired and tattered, 2) looking forward to a shower after a long day: a) the drain in the shower was not sufficient to drain the water, hence leading to water flooding from the bathroom into the

Hi, Do you’ll have babysitting services? Thanks.
I don’t think there is babysitting available through the hotel directly (like a kids club) but I have no doubt they could organise something for you. Contact concierge at the hotel.
