"Excellent Staff – Comfortable room"
Check in went without a hitch, the staff were all very professional and friendly making you feel welcome from the moment you approach the front door. They say the first impression is important, well at the Rialto it starts as you approach the front door with a friendly welcome from the doorman and it stays that way for the entire stay. The room was comfortable and spacious, yes I know that is what you expect at a 5 star hotel, but I have been in other so called 5 star hotels that don’t come anywhere near the standard of the Rialto. The night blind works like a treat, and the bed was so comfortable. A great night’s sleep. The buffet breakfast was very good with a huge selection of hold and cold dishes to choose from and again the staff were very helpful and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Complete with real coffee from a barista who was not only friendly but made great coffee. And if it is a well earned drink at the end of the day then try either the Bluestone Wine Lounge or the Market Lane Bar. I did, tried them both and they have a good selection of wine and beer and reasonably priced. Perfect for the end of a busy day. Great location, close to transport and the Southbank entertainment area. Just a quick walk up Collins Street to the main shopping area or there is a taxi rank right at the front door and a tram stop about 50 meters up the road. Take your pick it couldn’t be easier to get around.
"Beautiful building "
Such a beautiful building! Accommodation was perfect! Breakfast buffet was great. And the cocktails were fabulous! Recommend the Cosmopolitan & the Espresso Martini! Service was great. Can't fault this motel.
Not sure what they were thinking when they renovated this Hotel, but the rooms are all stuffy now as the windows can't be opened as they now all face in to the middle of the courtyard. You can't have your curtains open for the same reason. Not my favourite.
I stayed at InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto in mid February of 2017 for a weekend with my girlfriend and it was a great hotel and everything I expected. Upon arrival, the room was ready early and we were welcomed in a friendly manner. The room was perfect in size for what we needed and bathroom was clean and presentable. The TV worked well and provided us with a range of channels to view. The room was cleaned daily and bathroom towels/mats/shampoo was replenished each time. The entrance to the hotel is spectacular as it showcases every room from levels 1 to 5 which overlook the lobby. I would give this restaurant four and a half stars if I could and the reasoning behind not giving it the extra star is that I personally think it is a little overpriced for what you get. The meals as well were tiny for the price paid ($43 for a tiny chicken breast with broccolini and an extra $6 for the room service). Also, I know that every hotel mini bar in the world is extremely steep in price, however $12 for a mount franklin bottle of water is laughable. The passageway between lifts and rooms were very cold, however this didn't matter as the room temperature was perfect and provided a cozy setting. I would definitely stay at this hotel again except perhaps dine elsewhere. Great stay overall.
"Comfortable quiet stay excellent locatiom"
The Intercontinental Rialto is an excellent hotel. Room was spacious and quiet. Staff helpful and attentive. The Club lounge is nice offering breakfast, afternoon tea and canapes in a relaxed setting. The location is ideal for trams, trains and shops as well as easy walking distance to the river.
