"3 Day Business Trip"
If i was personally paying l would not have paid close to $500 for this hotel. It has a grand appearance as you enter and frankly that's as good as it gets. l had to wait about 15 minutes to check in because the check in person was too busy cracking jokes with a group of about 12 tourists in front of me. When i finally got to her she told me i had to pay and wouldn't believe me when l told her that everything had been paid for as by the email l was showing her, wasted another 10 minutes whilst she verified this with someone. The room was ok and yes the bathrooms are quite small. During the night i could hear people downstairs in the bar much to my annoyance! The facilities for the conference were pretty alright and we were also served lunch and morning tea through the hotel and the food was quite yummy. l did go to check out the restaurant but l couldn't justify the prices so went out instead and had a great meal for less than half of what l would have paid at their restaurant,which is the good thing about the location plenty of choices around!
"Lovely & Quiet"
We had a 2 night stay last week and chose this hotel as it was a nice walk to Etihad Stadium. Lovely room, great pool, lovely staff and our room was so quiet. We heard no noise from the construction next door and our room was really dark at night resulting in a fabulous sleep. We will definitely be back.
"A wonderful birthday celebration "
Recently stayed 3 nights, having booked King Club Room. As an IHG Ambassador we were given an upgrade to an amazing suite overlooking Collins St. The hotel is very stylish and elegant with that true Melbourne 'European feel'. The location is excellent - a quick walk from Southern Cross Station, Southbank and the casino, the east end theatre district and some beautiful shopping. The Club experience was faultless - from checkin to checkout! Kishor and his team are a 'class act'. Kishor ensured that everything was just perfect for my birthday celebration, and whilst all his staff were wonderful, a special thank you must go to Emily who just went the extra mile to add to our enjoyment. We really forward to returning to InterCon Melbourne- soon!!
"Good but great'"
Listed as a 5* hotel it is disappointing in its decor. Small bathroom , no bath, tired carpets and stained hallway carpets. Brown and functional would be my judgement. It was very busy which might partly explain the $400+ per night cost but we have stayed in much nicer hotels at a lower cost. What was included in the cost is the construction noise next door but disappointingly ( this seems std in Australia, who knows why'''') the wifi is not. Neither is a complimentary bottle of water in the room. Poor service , I think so. Used the Market Place bar downstairs and again the cost is quite high in a city inundated by bars, just goes to show you need to venture outside the hotel to get most value in your trip. Bar food average.
"Calmness descends "
After a week on the road around northern Victoria and southern New South Wales it was fantastic to arrive at the IHG Melbourne. As soon as you walk through the front doors the calming decor puts your mind at rest. The rooms are modern and comfortable. Loads of quality restaurants on South Bank within walking distance and the tram goes past the front door. Love this place. Worth being a IHG member and receive points for the stay.
