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 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 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulAndPauline A special occasion made special
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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fraite64 This hotel lives to its expectations
We try and come here every year, and have not been disappointed. The Westin Melbourne by far is the best hotel I have stayed in. Large quiet and clean room. Service is exceptional. Thanks to the staff at the Westin Melbourne for providing another memorable stay.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arianne Great base for urban break
The westin Melbourne is an excellent base for travellers wanting to explore the city of Melbourne. It is located close to all the major museums, galleries and cultural hubs of the city. Further it is positioned close to all the high end shops and wonderful lane ways and cafés. It offers great rooms with excellent facilities and comfortable surrounds. I love this hotel and enjoying staying here.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Westin Melbourne. Greatly appreciated the extra touches that staff did for my daughters 21st birthday. Staff were very friendly and helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. Highly recommended to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckd1 Excellent Westin
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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NathCC Great location, beautiful hotel, mixed service
I've stayed at this hotel several times now and must admit the hotel is one of the best options for Melbourne. It's a fantastic option being close to the theaters, Collins street for high end fashion, restaurants and Flinders Street station too. It's decor is consistent with the Westin brand globally and quite well maintained.
I've had mixed experiences in terms of Platinum benefits and recognition here though and wouldn't count on upgrades. The service has been okay both times, but nothing fantastic. The hotel also doesn't have two bedroom options which can be frustrating.
Overall a consistent performer and a great option for Melbourne.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RJS999 Great hotel but Breakfast is disappointing
I always stay at this hotel but I have to say, breakfast is average to below average at best. First of all, it was poorly staffed with only two servers for about thirty tables. The coffee, both a short black and the regular American coffee were just short of terrible. The food overall is pretty mediocre on the buffet, with the weakest orange juice (obviously from concentrate) that I've ever had. For $40 you should be able to get fresh squeezed. Also the room service menu, although interesting selection wise, is completely overpriced. $25 for a small pizza and then a delivery surchage on top of that as well? Come on Westin. I expect better.
