Rendezvous Grand hotels range from contemporary to heritage-style accommodations, located across the Asia-Pacific region. At the Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne, the elegance of the 1913 building meets 21st century technology in a seamless and stylish mix. The Straits Cafe prides itself on local ingredients, including the best of Australian wines from the Victoria region of Yarra Valley. From the splendor of the Grand Vestibule, with its columns and colonnades, to the river panoramas outside the windows of select rooms, the hotel offers a decidedly 'boutique' experience, confirmed by a 2013 Golden Circle Award.

Room Average

My wife and I stayed at the hotel twice as we were going on 13 night cruise .The first occasion we stayed was on the 2nd floor ,room small but the bed was good but no window view.On returning from the cruise I had booked the deluxe room . We had to wait till about 230 for the room which was on the 6th floor overlooked the rail and Southbank which was an interesting view, room clean and a bit of space but unfortunately the bed mattress was bad ( a real cheapie ) not as good as the 2nd floor. We both couldn't sleep during the night as the room was stuffy or frozen with the aircon on ( a problem with a lot of hotels today ) we needed fresh air ,I ended up with a severe cold (first cold in 20 years) ,Other comments the restaurant for dinner was very pricey ,the hotel staff were excellent location good to the CBD but a bit rough at night .Not really value for money

Great amenities and location

Right next to flinders Street station, and usually available at a good price. Housekeeping is a bit haphazard, but it's a price / location that can't be beaten (most of he time)

Great value for its amenities/location

The location of the hotel near the Flinders St station and Federation Square is excellent. The room, although small, is of a higher standard than expected for this price point. The only flaw was the bed could do with an update as it was a bit uncomfortable due to a bit of sagging and you could feel the wire in some places.

4 day getaway

Hotel staff on arriving friendly . Didnt explain how the lights worked in our room , but we worked it out . Bathroom could have been cleaner , build up on the tiles and scum around the basin . Hotel perfect location as we used public transport while we were there and the rest of the time we walked , everything so close . Beautiful buliding and foyer stunning . Would stay there again for a few nights .
