RENDEZVOUS HOTEL, MELBOURNE

Rendezvous Hotel is one of Australia’s finest historic hotels. Built in 1912, this meticulously restored hotel retains the elegant style of the early 1900s while providing guests with all the convenience of 21st century technology and amenities. It is located on Flinders Street overlooking the scenic Yarra River and the historic Flinders Street Station. It is in a prime location in the heart of the central business district that’s well suited for both business and leisure.

Rendezvous Hotel’s excellent service and attention to detail ensures that guests enjoy a superior stay. It is equipped with quality amenities, and each of the 340 comfortable rooms and suites express a stylish individuality highlighting the hotel’s rich heritage. This historical authenticity carries through to the classical surroundings of The Grill Restaurant, where fresh local produce and the best Australian and international wines take centre stage.

The domed foyer with its rows of columns and balcony provides a focal point for the magnificently restored art nouveau décor, which is a recurrent architectural and decorative theme throughout the Hotel.

  4. Gorgeous captures Nick - the streets look deserted, so are you a night owl or an early riser?! An absolutely charming building; wonderful architecture, lighting and overall decor. Love that leadlight window. Thanks for sharing, not only the images but also the background info.
