W Melbourne remains one of Melbourne's finest hotels if you're looking for a celebratory staycation or a weekend getaway.
July 15, 2022
Cheeky, fanciful and adorned with luxury designer touches, W Melbourne knows exactly who she is. While Melbourne has no shortage of hotels whether you are looking for a celebratory staycation or a weekend getaway, none are quite as trendy as W Hotel group's first Victorian outpost.
Designed by local architect and interior design firm Hachem, the stay is a study in opulence across 264 guest rooms and 29 suites. Modern comforts include W bathrobes, Davines amenities, smart TVs, deep soaking tubs, free wifi and glowing Marilyn Monroe murals. The crown jewel of the hotel is the indulgent 'Extreme Wow Suite', boasting a jukebox, cocktail bar and private 40-square-metre balcony with river views.
Venture beyond your room and you'll find W Melbourne's sky-high, gold-embellished pool, which turns into an adults-only space every evening. A well-equipped gym, 27/4 concierge, in-room dining service and four onsite hospitality venues round out the excellent offering.
Plus, every Sunday from 2pm, W Melbourne's weekly indoor pool party WET Sessions kicks off with a poolside bar, panoramic views of the city's skyline and a fresh DJ taking over the decks each month. Tickets will set you back $46.35 (including the booking fee). That gets you entry, a drink on arrival and roving snacks to keep you going throughout the afternoon — whether that's to keep you energised for swimming some laps or just to have a poolside dance, it's up to you.
Finally, if you want to live it up and spend a weekday by W Melbourne's glam 14th-floor pool, you can get access via W Melbourne's Swim Club which includes 12-hour access to the luxurious pool zone, including its steam room and gym, without having to book a room.
