The front desk person would have been better if he was always focused on me and not observing and jumping to the going on around him. He did upgrade the room for me but did not focus consistently on serving me. I did order my car to be outside the hotel at 5:30pm and it was not there. I had...

We have visited the Windsor several times over the last 30 years, and have enjoyed the experience each time. We will not hesitate to come again. It is a pleasure to be greeted by Russell at the door, and to know that Joseph is still providing friendly service.

As we walked up the stairs towards the double entry doors it magically opened with a gentleman greeting us as though we had just arrived home. Through the doors into the magical foyer we were then greeted and ushered to our room to get refreshed for the afternoon. This was not just a hotel it felt just like home and...

The Hotel Windsor is a beautiful building with very nice rooms. The room was very comfortable even though all the amenities are not the newest (half the year the room is heated and the other half it's cooled). The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They helped us organize perfect tours and always had an umbrella ready for us when...

My mother and I travelled together for our first ever Mother-Daughter holiday to see The Book of Mormon. I travel often to Melbourne, but it was my first stay at The Windsor. My mother hadn't been in Melbourne since the 80's! She was absolutely thrilled at the service, the room, the overall ambience of the hotel and it's very central...

We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Hotel Windsor. Such a majestic hotel full of character. The staff were friendly & helpful. A small mix up occurred with a room service charge, however this was quickly rectified with no fuss. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

The hotel is located in Melbourne’s most central and fashionable district. Its location is in close proximity to the corporate, financial and designer heart of Melbourne. Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance. The hotel is located 20km from Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport, with a traveling time of between 20-45 minutes. Parliament train station and tram stops including the City Circle route are located at the hotel’s doorstep. ... more   less
