The stay at the Intercon was a indulgence we booked online and got a good deal price wise. Great location close to all things Melbourne CBD. The service very good as to be expected the room immaculate with all the needs and wants one needs. The only critique I have was the carpet's along the hallways to my room looked dirty, this is just and observation and I am sure they are clean it is just a poor colour choice with dark hallway lighting. The Intercontinental Rialto Hotel is beautiful Architecturally Gothic meets new world and convenience to Collins street shop precinct and surrounds. Collapse

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Intercontinental Melbourne The Rialto. We arrived at the hotel around 10:30am after our flight from Sydney, eager to drop our bags off and get a late breakfast before returning to our rooms in the afternoon. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that our rooms, both King Club, were ready! This was simply unheard of, and we were so delighted to have early access to our rooms to unwind after our flight. The rooms are well laid-out and have all the comforts you come to expect from the Intercontinental. Whilst the room itself was more classic than modern, the large size and space (41sqm) of the room definitely made up for the lack of ultra-modern furnishings. Also, we found the bed to be exceptionally comfy and provided a consistently good night's sleep over the duration of our stay. The hotel itself is located in a historic and nicely preserved gothic style building and our room provided a nice view into the large 10 storey atrium where the facade is illuminated at night. The club lounge was bar far the highlight of our stay and I would highly recommend a club access room. The full buffet breakfast (from the lounge or downstairs restaurant), afternoon high tea and evening drinks and canapés were simply divine and the friendly and professional service continued to make a pleasant and highly enjoyable stay. There was a wonderful range provided and the food selection on offered changed daily. We loved using the glass-roofed pool and spa that provided great CBD views. The convenient Collins St location also ensured that were were within walking distance to all the major CBD attractions. We will definitely be back! Collapse

Im not that old, but I can remember when the building that houses this lovely hotel was abandoned warehousing either side of a bluestone laneway that lead to the Yarra river. Now, of course, it is an interesting and tastefully refurbished building that retains some of that heritage while being very comfortable and convenient accommodation in the heart of Melbourne. The staff and services and food are also very good as you would expect from an IC. All of the rooms I have stayed in have been generously proportioned and very comfortable but all slightly different configurations due to the obvious reconfiguration of the space from its original purpose. To my mind it adds interest and makes a nice diversion from the usual repetition of rooms and furnishing you find in many hotels. Despite being in the CBD I have found it to be a quiet and restful location with access to the best Melbourne has to offer once you step out the front door. Because of the style of building dont expect grand views of Melbourne but that would be the only caveat I would mention to potential guests. Otherwise there is very little not to enjoy. Collapse

Check in is from 3pm so you would expect things to be quiet and staff attentive. They were very welcoming. We walked from Southern Cross Station, the old Spencer Street. We had been here for our 25th wedding anniversary and now it was our 40th. That was worth mentioning because we were complimented with a free drink each in the Bluestone Bar. At an early 4:30 I’m sure the barman appreciated some real work with just a half dozen of us there. Peroni on tap was a refreshing idea. Walk around and you’ll see a few interesting art works, maybe a silver octopus or a bull, appropriately outside the Market Bar. Currently a set of portraits by Vincent Fantauzzo, Asher Keddie’s partner, are on display. We were allotted a suite on the 6th floor and although our balcony was locked for safety reasons, I did achieve access via a door near the lifts. From there you can see the originally facade of the building which would have had a laneway running through the hub. As such it’s hard to define the hotel as either modern or classic. It’s got both. It’s not budget but for what is on offer I say it represents fair value. Our room and bed were spacious, with a little chaise long to watch TV and a chair and desk to write up some notes. Mirrors are a big feature for my lady and the excellent large, swivelling contraption in the bathroom received praise. I stood outside the bathroom and used the big mirror on the door to do up my tie etc. The mini-bar was heavily stocked and heavily priced but we were off for a night on the town so it held so sway. Breakfast is not cheap but there are plenty of budget offerings nearby. The Australian Open Tennis started on the day of our departure so while things were busier we never felt rushed. If we last another ten years I shall happily return. Collapse
