Time Out Melbourne

Five-star grandeur in the heart of the city

Proving that grand is what 5-star hotels are all about, this property has been redefining what the ‘traditional’ hotel experience should be.

InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto doesn’t just also boast a brilliant location in the heart of the CBD, it can also lay claim to be one of Australia’s greenest buildings - when it opened in December 2008 after a huge refurbishment and transition from Le Meridien, it was the first hotel in the world to be Green Globe rated.

Now, you could be forgiven for thinking you're staying in a building lined with jail cells thanks to the classical architecture inside the main atrium, but once inside the rooms, you'll find contemporary, spacious digs with the latest technology and top of the line beds.

The rooms are comfortable and the grandeur adds quite a romantic feel to any stay - whether it be someone special or a companion you met in a Flinders Lane drinking den a few hours before.
