When I checked in to the Intercontinental at the last minute for the second two nights of my three night business trip to Melbourne I was in desperate need of comfort having had a nightmare experience at a neighbouring establishment where I'd tried three rooms before throwing in the towel! My colleagues had recommended this hotel as the perfect antidote and it was everything they had promised. I loved the historic feel of the place and the stylish mood lighting. My room was one of the smaller ones overlooking the restaurant, but was perfectly appointed with all those additional extra touches that the intercontinental group do so well. The bed was super comfortable and having experienced the bathrooms from hell across the road I was delighted to find myself in a haven of comfort once more.
I took breakfast in the restaurant and opted for the continental offering as there was so much choice. Service was prompt and efficient and the ambiance very pleasant. The only thing that took a bit of getting used to was that it was impossible to tell what the weather was doing as both my room and the restaurant had no outward aspect, but Sky News weather came to the rescue.
I would definitely book in here again - not only is the location ideal, but the style of the property encapsulates my idea of Melbourne perfectly.More
