The Hotel Windsor is Australia’s most loved and recognised grand hotel. Built in 1883 during the Victorian era and pre-dating other notable hotels such as The Savoy, Waldorf Astoria, Ritz Paris and The Plaza Hotel, it set a benchmark for style, elegance, sophistication and charm which remains ever present today. The hotel is located in Melbourne’s most central and fashionable district. Its location is in close proximity to the corporate, financial and designer heart of Melbourne. Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance. The hotel is located 20km from Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport, with a traveling time of between 20-45 minutes. Parliament train station and tram stops including the City Circle route are located at the hotel’s doorstep.

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.

Stayed here during a five day stay to Melbourne. First impressions were of excellent, high ceilings, wide corridors, excellent customer service, very clean and very big rooms. There is a great history in the hotel showing all the famous guests that have stayed at the hotel. The

The Windsor Hotel is like stepping back to 1950. It has so much potential but it is tired, run down and old. It is in desperate need of a spruce up and is definitely not a 5 star hotel. It is spotlessly clean but the rooms, halls and general areas are long overdue for

upon arrival at this well kept hotel I was greeted by the desk clerk who was friendly and courteous. Moments later myself and, fellow guests, discover that our room accommodations were not as we had specified when reserved. It was not a easy task to correct but the clerk and his

We stayed at the Windsor for two nights and found it absolutely beautiful. The decor and general feel of the hotel was wonderful and it felt like being surrounded with old style luxery.I'd paid for breakfast for both mornings but unfortunately found the choice and quality of the

Reasons not to stay:1. The hotel essentially surrounds a sevice atrium so any room on the inner side a) has a view of a wall out the window and b) sounds like you're in a washing machine the whole time. I wore earplugs every night to drown out the noise of the generator but
