Welcome to Australia’s Most Cherished Grand Hotel
A 5 Star Melbourne Hotel Icon
The Windsor is in Melbourne's city centre at the top of Bourke and Spring Streets, opposite historic Parliament House, and in the heart of the dazzling theatre and restaurant district. It is within walking distance of Collins Street's luxury boutiques, the MCG, Rod Laver Arena and picturesque gardens. Tram stops and Parliament train station are conveniently located on 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 timeless 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 our renowned Afternoon Tea. Served daily in One Eleven tea lounge, the reimagined experience includes 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 Windsor is where guests relive the grandeur of a beautifully-preserved past, in a distinctly Melbourne establishment where service reflects a more gracious era.
