From the moment you walk into the art-filled lobby and are greeted by staff wearing sharp jeans and hoodies, you know you’ve arrived somewhere with more than a touch of contemporary flair. The 658 rooms have a minimalist vibe, retro-inspired furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sparkling city skyline. The pièce de résistance, however, is the stunning glass-enclosed pool on the top floor, 28 levels above the city, and its adjoining Isika Day Spa, where you can chill in vitality pools and steam rooms before taking in “body-blissing” treatments.
Part of the Crown complex on Southbank, you have every entertainment at your doorstep. The CBD is directly across the river and you can walk along the promenade to the Arts Centre Melbourne and NGV.
