Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbiest Hotel has the most comfortable beds EVER
We loved our stay, staff were warm and friendly, rooms were beautiful and clean and the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. Will be back for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stewnug Look forward to coming back soon
A great hotel, from the minute I arrived to my departure everything was as expected of a hotel of this standard. The room was fantastic, well furnished, the Heavenly Bed was so comfortable!
Breakfast in the room was pricy, but food was of a high quality.
All staff that I encountered during my stay were friendly, had a genuine approach to service & demonstrated a can do attitude.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Unfortunately due to Aust wages being so high, it is difficult to meet the service standards for a true 5 star hotel.
Balcony bar service was poor. Chairs dirty and stained with food. Balcony floor was not swept and cigarette butts were littered around tables.
Room TV did not work and need fixing.
On returning to our room at 11.00 PM a very loud party was going on next door.
We had had enough.. checked out and went home for a quiet nights sleep.
A disappointing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BuzTrav69 Consistently high standard
I have been visiting the Westin Melbourne for many years. Rooms are large, very comfortable and classically fit out. All staff have very good customer friendly "can help" attitude. Location is perfect for CBD meetings or holiday and nearby choice of city cafes, restaurants and bars within less than 5 min walk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by WearyPlatinum Useful tips ...
... if you need to call Service Express from you room after about 11pm, call from the external number ... it gets answered a lot quicker.
... if you order room service, order very clearly and double check what you get. Based on my 12+ stays and approx 40 room service orders in the last year or so you get exactly what you asked for about half the time. Last night was a record, brought the soup bowl, but forgot the soup.
... if you're bill is going to be over $5,000 then you'll get a note during your stay (not mentioned at checkin) to go to settle up 'at your convenience'. That night you'll find that your room keys no longer work, just to encourage your 'convenience' to coincide with the Westin's. Based on two stays in the last year of over two weeks.
The hotel is OK, but thinks it is a lot better than it actually is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sonia Room smelt of cigarette smoke
The room I was given smelt of cigarette smoke. Although the staff came up and sprayed something around, I find it disastify that in a hotel that is meant to be Non-smoking that it smelt of cigarettes.
Also when I walked in to the room (413) the man hole cover in the room had been broken and replaced with a couple of sheets of ply. For a hotel that is 5 star I wouldn't expect to see that kind of thing. It looked shabby and took away from the luxury feel of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike53 Very happy
As a frequently traveller within Australia, I can compare and contrast the service, value and consideration of many Hospitality Service providers. The Westin Melbourne is the Number 1, 5 Star Motel in Australia. From, booking to arrival to checkout and everywhere in between the service exceeds expectations and the staff are professional, genuine, warm and friendly. The Westin Melbourne sets the standard for customer services excellence in it's industry in Australia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LMary fabulous stay ..although
As usual we had a fabulous few days at the Westin Melbourne. Staff were great, Ian in the foyer always helpful and ready to give any information we needed. Don't let him leave the place ever !! One little point was the dirty coffee mugs in our room with pink lipstick still on the rim and tea/coffee stained line inside the cup. House keeping were very prompt to being us fresh cups. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olivia79 Exceptional and consistent everytime
We always choose to stay at the Westin every time we visit Melbourne. It is a truly exceptional hotel on all levels and feels like a home away from home. Location and proximity to all of Melbourne's attractions is second to none. We absolutely love staying here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dessie Rooms were great comfort
As a Gold SPG member, room was upgraded however only after asking for it. (I had assumed that it would be automatic without asking provided there is room available).
Breakfast was not good. Unfortunate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katherine56 An oasis in the chaos of life!!
Staying at the Westin is a treat. You are made welcome soon as you approach the valet at the front door and this service continues for the whole of your stay. The discreet luxury of the Hotel, and the Heavenly beds aren't too hard to take either. Another bonus is the Hotel's excellent location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fuba yet another great stay!
from the moment we arrived, we had our room request met and just knew it was going to be a great stay.
upon arrival into our room we were both surprised by the generosity in size, a side balcony and of course the amazing bathroom/shower.
restaurant recommendations where spot on and service in the outlets, simple and easy.
having worked for starwood for about 17 years here & the US, its always nice to come home, well done westin melbourne, you did it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suresh35 Nice Hotel But ...
The Hotel is pretty good. Location is fantastic and the room is great.
I am not sure about the staff. They didn't make me feel like home. They are machine like. When I arrived, they haven't informaed me what are the facilities available at the Hotel. I was there for 9 days, during my stay no Hellos or Hi. They just stood their keep looking at the monitor eventhough there is no one needs to be helped. I travel alot, this kind of weird experience for me.

I was disappointed that my room rate included breakfast and asked for a rate without breakfast as i had meeting booked for 7am each day outside the hotel.
as it was not possible i changed one of my breakfast meeting to be in the hotel, i paid for my guest and then had to go outside for my next day breakfast but still had to pay for it.
as an SPG member and on business this inflexibility and cost is a detraction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 23ST Beautiful hotel in central Melbourne - lovely old character with 5 star international amenities.
Great place to stay in city centre - close to everything and so convenient to restaurants, cafes and shopping. Easy in and out with back driveway. Room, foyer, meeting place are stunning with elegance and class above all else in Melbourne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JM99 Luxurious hotel in the heart of the city
A beautifully appointed hotel in the heart of Melbourne city. The staff were professional and happy to help with any request. The spa room was exceptional, with a corner room I had views over Collins streets and Spencer Street. Located close to many excellent restaurants, shopping, arts, museums, all within close walking distance.

Staff are great. Too much buddy type conversations that erode professionalism. SPG's took second place to the public on Mothers day invasion. I was turfed from a table, denied an accompaniment to my coffee and promptly watched other tables being served what I had requested. casual staff on the day not up to standard. Please tell floor staff that guests are not "gents"(a public loo) but gentlemen.Rooms too late in making up.

Upon arrival, Vanessa Corrone on Reception was friendly, courteous and professional.
My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and, upon returning to our room late afternoon, we were greeted with a bottle of champagne from the hotel.
Overall, top service and facilities from a top hotel.

This was our second stay at the hotel with our baby son and our expectations were exceeded on both occasions. The pool is well maintained, the rooms are clean and beautifully styled, the staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was fabulous. A cot was also brought to the room on request. We felt like we were royalty staying here. I would recommend this hotel to everyone travelling to Melbourne because the location is also so central and it makes it easy to explore the city. Whilst my husband slept, I was able to take my son across the street in the pram and go shopping! He also enjoyed practising walking up and down the hotel corridors and in the lobby! Not so much space to do that at home. We also ordered room service for dinner and the food was delicious and service was prompt. Thank you all- you are doing a wonderful job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by thomson hammock beds
I know you pride yourself on your Heavenly beds, but in my experience they are really starting to sag and feel more like hammocks. I thought this the last time I stayed and told myself not to stay with you again, but I forgot and rebooked, and then regretted it when I got into bed. I slept so badly. When your beds are fresh and new they are the best in the world. Old and saggy they are the worst.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaHeff This hotel continued to disappoint.
In addition to poor amenities and service during my 60th celebration, I later find that I had been billed twice for the stay! I have just returned from Rome where I stayed at the Westin Excelsior Rome as a Gold Starwood member....late checkout assured...when I returned to my room at 2.30 pm to pack for departure my room key had been cancelled. It seems the whole Westin staff need further training regarding what constitutes customer service.
