The top-end

Class with river views: The Langham, Southbank. “If your tastes in hotels revolves around assured classic five-star luxury digs with a grand, big-city feel than you'll be well and truly in the pink at The Langham.” - Traveller

Restrained elegance: Park Hyatt, East Melbourne. “The majestically long paved driveway is lined with immaculately kept towering topiary bushes and official looking flag poles. At the end of the driveway is a beautifully lit grand entrance and a cordial door man who dutifully greeted us and held the door for us … a presidential first impression; a sensation that only deepens the more time you spend inside its dignified walls.” - Eating & Sleeping

Five-star credentials: Westin, City Square. “Melbourne's The Westin has all the credentials expected of an international five-star hotel: excellent and understated service, elegant rooms, a classy Martini Bar and its own private collection of artworks – including chandelier sculptures – by local and international artists.” - Daily Telegraph, London

Room with a view: Sofitel, City. “Collins Street, one of Melbourne's best boulevards, is home to this luxury hotel, which offers formal service, richly decorated rooms and contemporary Australian restaurant, No35, which has sweeping views of the city. The hotel's cocktail bar, Atrium, is the perfect launching pad for a night of exploring the city.” - Daily Telegraph, London
