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.

Great Stay

Our stay at the hotel was marvellous. Staff and facilities were excellent with parking next door. Close to many CBD and Melbourne attractions with plenty of transport options at the front door. Look forward to staying again in the near future.

In room dinning

Disappointed with two of the meals I picked.. Ordered BBQ spare ribs and got boiled ribs with no sauce but a jar of tomato sauce and the one morning we ordered breakfast we were surprised to find that the croussants were served cold and not heated through. On the plus side your hamburger meal was good as well as the corn feed chicken with Persian mash and greens.

Great little hotel

Great hotel in a great location. The staff are friendly and provide excellent recommendations on what to do, see and eat. The location can't be beat just across from the train station, two block from federation square and the free tram and tour bus.

Melbourne Getaway

Dissappointing experience. My recent stay at this hotel made it clear that the standard has dropped and attention to detail missing. Despite asking for and being promised one of their better rooms (due to being in Melbourne for a special occassion) we were allocated the smallest room I have ever stayed in. The bathroom was ridiculous with barely enough room btw the vanity and the door. Despite it having twin beds there was not clothing storage space for even one person. Items were not restocked during the housekeeping process and the attention to detail was just not there. Avoid the room services breakfast at all costs. Cold coissant and we even had to ring for butter and jam. Despite the location being fantastic we won't stay here again. There are far better value for money accommodation options available.
