Full accommodation information

Sitting pretty in the heart of Melbourne’s sparkling Central Business District, the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins certainly looks the part with reliable guestrooms, spacious suites and plenty of onsite facilities.

While here you’ll be just moments from:

  • Federation Square
  • the Princess Theatre,
  • Melbourne Museum and
  • Melbourne Arts Centre

with plenty more local landmarks, lots of restaurants, shopping streets and bars around the area. That said, few of those can beat the panoramas enjoyed by Sofitel Melbourne On Collins’ own No35 bar or exclusive Club Lounge, both situated on the building’s upper floors and providing some of the best views of Melbourne as a result.

The property boasts a beauty salon too, and there are bikes for hire, secure parking and a gym that has all the essential machines, only adding to the already enticing allure of a great location, those enviable views, and Sofitel’s generously appointed guestrooms. Beginning at a respectable 390sq ft in the Classic Room – though with floorplans rising up to over 1,500sq ft in the top suites – they are more spacious than most and all benefit from at least one wall of glass, with city or bay views. King-size beds, marble bathrooms, a shower and tub, mood-sensitive lighting and flat-screen TVs also come as standard in these modern abodes, situated between the 36th and 50th floors of the building.

All of the guestrooms at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins are found between the 36th and 50th floors, meaning fantastic views through floor-to-ceiling windows come as part of the package for everybody. They are all modern and subtly sophisticated too, opting for a risk-free décor scheme of pale creams and dark wood, marble bathrooms and plenty of light thanks to their walls of glass. Touch-screen lighting controls, a flat-screen TV, shower and tub, air-conditioning, king-size beds and a seating area also come as standard, with the larger suites enjoying lounge spaces and superior views to boot.

Classic Room

Classic Room

Coming with either one king-size or twin beds, city views and a floorplan of 390sq ft plus all other Sofitel in-room extras, the Classic Room offers much more than your entry-level option, situated on the 36th floor.
Superior Room

Superior Room

Similar in size, layout and location to the Classic Room, Superior options differ only in their views, in this case being out toward the bay.
Luxury Room

Luxury Room

Slightly larger at 430sq ft, Luxury Rooms offer the extra space but also a corner location, meaning panoramic views through two walls of glass.
Luxury Room Club Sofitel

Luxury Room Club Sofitel

The city-view Luxury Room Club Sofitel provides exclusive access to the Sofitel Club Lounge, with its complimentary drinks, breakfast and lunch, plus all additional in-room extras – situated on the 46th floor.
Junior Suite

Junior Suite

540sq ft of space in the elegant Junior Suite includes a lounge area and sofas, corner building location and enhanced panoramic views.
Prestige Suite Club Sofitel

Prestige Suite Club Sofitel

Nearly double the size of a Junior Suite at 830sq ft, this Prestige Club equivalent has a prime location on the 36th floor that makes the most of 2 long walls of glass, great views, a separate lounge and dining room as well as access to the Sofitel Club Lounge.
Opera Suite

Opera Suite

Up on the 50th floor you’ll find the Opera Suite, which is a real cut above; 1,571sq ft in size, 180-degree panoramas of the city, a powder room, dining area, separate lounge and kitchenette, as well as access to the Sofitel Club Lounge.

The Sofitel Melbourne On Collins is a well-equipped property for such a central location, with its extensive gym and beauty salon, sauna, bikes for hire, private indoor parking for anyone on a self-drive trip plus babysitting and dry-cleaning in-house if needed. Club-level guests will also have access to the Sofitel Club Lounge, where breakfast, complimentary drinks, lunch and light bites are served.

No35 and the Sofitel Club Lounge

No35 and the Sofitel Club Lounge

Situated on the higher floors of the hotel you have a choice of two bar and restaurant areas, No35 and the Sofitel Club Lounge, both serving a similar style of contemporary cuisine, cocktails and top-shelf drinks, though with the Sofitel Club only being accessible to those in certain room categories. The views across Melbourne through walls of glass from either venue are picture-worthy, particularly at night – worth visiting for alone before you even get to the fine-dining menu!  

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

The bright lights of Melbourne are within touching distance while staying at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins; situated in the Central Business District, the hotel is surrounded by glamorous cocktail bars, boutique outlets and a good selection of restaurants. Time in the hotel itself can be spent in the beauty salon, at the gym or in one of two lounge bars (with one being exclusively for Club-level guests only), while Federation Square and Princess Theatre, Melbourne Museum and Melbourne Arts Centre are all within walking distance.
