Rated 5 out of 5 Best Starwood Property in Australia
I travel extensively throughout Australia and have had the opportunity to stay at every Starwood property in an Australian capitol city. The Westin Melbourne by far is the best. The service and recognition I receive as a SPG member beats all of the other Starwood properties in Australia hands down. Many thanks to the staff at the Westin Melbourne for providing another memorable stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KEWgirl The hotel is a great place to catch up with friends
It was a girls weekend away to celebrate my birthday. There were 9 of us that stayed there from other parts of the world. The hotel ticked all the boxes - close to shopping, great eateries, art galleries, public transport, business centre, swimming pool and spa, friendly staff and most helpful. We loved the convenience and the cafes next door. Loved every single minute of our visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainRider Perfect location
If you are looking to stay in a central downtown location with easy access to the Trains/Trams and riverfront - the Westin is the perfect choice.
This hotel has an elegant feel to it and the staff are some of the best I've encountered (I travel frequently).
Loved the recreational options with the pool and steam/sauna rooms- but be advised the fitness center is quite small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JujuB So close!
The Westin is so close to eveything in the city.. an ideal location.
When you need a change of pace there is the perfect pool to swim in.
And the staff are wonderful..nothing is too much trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mugsey84 Beautiful hotel in the center of town
Hotel is outstanding, both in terms of looks as well as practicality. Heavenly beds and showers were great. Staff was very helpful in planning activities in Melbourne, as well as designing a Great Ocean Road itinerary and picking restaurants/clubs to go to. Very nice gym as well. Far exceeded expectations and would definitely recommend/return! Confirmed love for starwood.

We stay here every year and it is a great location. Unfortunately this year our room was very noisy from outside noise. Every morning between 3-4 am the rubbish trucks were emptying bins and the noise was like it was just outside our window, so not a lot of sleep. Hopefully this won't happen again as we will continue to stay there. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

I love going to the Westin in Melbourne, it's in a terrific location. The staff are always so friendly, sometimes a little slow in the lobby lounge with service. We ate at the restaurant on our first night and we were very disappointed. We normally go a couple of times during our stay for meals but this time we didn't feel it was up to it's usual standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella8 What a perfect Birthday
My partner celebrated his 50th Birthday and when we checked in, we had a knock on the door and were presented with 3 beautiful cakes, a plaque, champagne, a lovely card and a beautiful Westin Robe. The room was beautiful with the lovely Juliette Balcony, it really made celebrating my partners birthday that much more special. Thank you to all the staff

Rated 5 out of 5 by averagehuman Comfortable bed, excellent staff and strategic location
I found the staff were really friendly and doing their job excellently such that everything was smooth during my stay. Checking-in was a brisk, ad-hoc requests were satisfied in shortest-time possible and I can even ask concierge help to send my postcards.
Overall, friendly people, great service and I really love the bed after tiring day at work :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by None888 Excellent hotel
I have always enjoyed this hotel It is well located and comfortable. Two observations:
1. The bacon for breakfast is always hardly cooked, why can't it be made crispy without asking?
2. The "make up room" button seems to have no practical effect. I went to breakfast at 8.30 and when I returned at 10.00 the room had not been cleaned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lyn12 Seriously Dissapointed
In preparing to chair a Board Meeting to release the annual results the wi fi worked on the first night and then would not work during the morning. In the end I went to Macdonalds and the free wi fi worked first time.
Wi fi works all the time in third world countries and is not charged for.
Will consder changing hotels in future

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buster75 Consistently Excellent
We stayed on the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The process from phone booking to check out was faultless. We were surprised with a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch and totally unexpected. We have stayed once previously and this trip exceeded our expectations. The only exception was the breakfast buffet which was average in variety and quality. Not enough to stop us returning, though. Possibly our new favourite place to stay in Melbourne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy21 Great service
Our thanks to Paul at concierge desk, friendly and patient, very helpful tips and sightseeing recommendations. Our stay was made all the better with his help. BUT, don't understand need for in-room WiFi charge policies, it's a free service almost everywhere we have traveled (we did forego the 250 points option). .

Rated 4 out of 5 by JMG136 Lovely hotel, well loacted
Lovely staff and service with excellent rooms with large bathrooms. Unfortunately we found the bed far too soft and pillows quite uncomfortable so would mark it down on that. If your partner wants to read without waking you, bring a small light as the bed lights light up the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by F1Maniac Simply amazing!
I have not seen anything that comes close to the Westin Melbourne in terms of service, room decor, cleanliness and attention to detail!
all three of my stays here has been just perfect. If you go to Melbourne for any reason and can afford 5star just choose Westin. You will not be disaapointed

The rooms are fantastic, clean, new and confi.
I would like to make a special mention to
Steve Ciric & James Berechree, at the concierge desk, they save our lives with a delay package. People like this makes SPG hotels the best in the world

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cobbychic The Westin has wonderfully friendly staff
It is the small things that mean the most, Courteous staff, clean bathrooms in lobby,
The complimentry bar nuts with your drink in front of the warm fire in downstairs area. My husband and I had the most relaxing lovely time and would not hesitate to stay at the Westin again.

Paul & Steve managed to get us tickets for Les Mis after they had been booked out for weeks. Front Row, dress circle- best in house. Made our 20th wedding anniversary something we will never forget. You've seen the film - now meet the concierges who Can do. Excellent Location- we will be back

Rated 3 out of 5 by markf A bit below my expectations for a Westin.
A bit below my expectations for a Westin. Just too corporate and not a personal feel. No one was rude but just not overly friendly. I don’t think I would not stay here again. SPG does not mean much to them here and they do not have a club for or floor for SPG members.

Perfectly located near all name brand stores from Gucci to Bulgari. Spent 2 nights in an upgrade suite and made us feel like royalty. Very convenient to central Melbourne, theatres and shopping. Every girls dream hotel.

Great hotel in excellent location. High quality facilities and friendly staff. SPG recognition a little average at this Westin, but may relate to high occupancy.
Will definitely return.

The Westin is my go to destination in Melbourne.
Spacious rooms, 5 star (if not 6) dining, and a super central location. Don't miss it.
The only downside is the almost too soft pillows and bed. I must remember to ask for a stiffer pillow next time - that's my fault.
