The Prince Hotel
Expect chic beachy vibes within this restored art deco building in St Kilda.
August 05, 2023
Want to be beside the sea in the heart of St Kilda? Pick The Prince Hotel, which happily sits just a short tram ride away from the Melbourne CBD and a quick stroll from the sand. Here, you'll find comfortable yet polished modern rooms that look to be pulled straight out of a design magazine, with the hotel rocking an upscale beach vibe while also highlighting the building's art deco architecture heritage. This helps make it one of our favourite hotels in Melbourne.
There are six different suite styles available at The Prince, decked out with elegant pops of colour and specially commissioned photography works by Tom Blachford and Kate Ballis. On-site wining and dining options are in strong supply between the Mediterranean-accented Prince Dining Room, the recently-revamped Prince Public Bar and the boutique wine bar Little Prince Wine.
And if you're up for a night out on the town, all you have to do is head to the hotel's iconic Prince Bandroom, where some of the city's best live acts have been known to frequent.
