This was our 1st time to Melbourne (mum, dad & 2 kids 8 & 10) - we had big plans to get out of the city etc....we didn't get that chance as we were totally absorbed in the city and what it has to offer. Transferring to the airport was easy and the drive into the city during peak hour...

The Intercontinental is located in what once was two separate warehouse type buildings with a small street in between. The street is not a vertical lobby, with the restaurant, bar, etc. It is a covered atrium in effect. The hotel was very good but there are some things to consider. The main one is that you have no view of...

So disappointing to have to write a review while I am still here on our first night! Booked a weekend away to celebrate my wife's birthday and after making numerous calls to reservations and the front desk to ensure they know it was her birthday we were greeted with just the basic customer service. I normally hate reading reviews about...

We stayed overnight in April due to a meeting in the morning, as we have on a couple of occasions. This time we forgot to grab the toiletry bag from the bathroom. We didn't notice until we got home that night. I called the hotel to be told to call back in the morning as the Cleaning supervisor was not...

This hotel is on a short list for me when in Melbourne on business and not at the convention center. It is a hassle free hotel with all the services I need. Although this trip I did not use the fitness center, spa or restaurants they are all equal to the grade of hotel. The Club room is even easier...

This is a well appointed hotel in heart of Melbourne. Staff friendly and helpful. Fast wifi, good restaurant on site for dinner etc, nil complaints. Comfortable rooms. As I would expect for 4+ star hotel.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
