Welcome to Australia’s Most Cherished Grand Hotel
A 5 Star Melbourne Hotel Icon
The Hotel Windsor is in the premier Melbourne city centre location at the top of Bourke Street and Spring Street, opposite the historic Parliament House, and in the heart of the dazzling theatre and restaurant district. It is within walking distance of the luxury boutiques of Collins Street, the MCG, Rod Laver Arena and picturesque gardens. Catch a Melbourne tram adjacent to the hotel or the train via Parliament underground station, conveniently outside our doorstep.
Chinatown and the thriving laneways with Melbourne's famous quirky restaurants and bars are just steps away.
As a grand heritage hotel dating back to 1883, our timelessly elegant rooms offer various views and configurations in keeping with the original architecture. Beautiful historic details and features abound – from antique mirrors, desks and lights to oval drawing rooms and ornamental fireplaces in our premier suites.
Royalty, distinguished guests and celebrities have graced our rooms and hallways, and we have been the location for many a stately meeting and grand wedding.
A “must do” is The Hotel Windsor’s renowned Afternoon Tea, a grand Melbourne tradition. Served daily in the tea lounge, One Eleven, it offers silver three-tiered stands with freshly baked scones, house-made jam and double cream, a trio of French patisserie, ribbon sandwiches and savoury pastries. A sublime cake and dessert selection is included on weekends.
A fundamental part of Melbourne’s very fabric, built at the time when the city was at the height of a gold rush, The Hotel Windsor is where guests relive the grandeur of a beautifully-preserved past, in a distinctly Melbourne establishment where service reflects a more gracious era.
