Spacious rooms and suites are complete with breathtaking views, while the infinity pool, library bar, spa and signature restaurants add an extra layer of grandeur to your stay.

The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne occupies the top floors of West Side Place.

Upon arrival, an express elevator whisks you up to the lobby on the top floor, giving you a taste of the scenic views. From top to bottom, the hotel’s interior celebrates the unique stories of Melbourne, incorporating influences from its indigenous history, Victorian-era gold rush, and European heritage to create a profound sense of place.

Beyond the lobby, the hotel delights with a range of spaces to aid your relaxation and embrace Australia’s laidback way of life. Soak up the views from the glistening infinity pool, relish local cuisine in the hotel’s inspired restaurants, indulge in a massage at the spa, and get your heart racing in the state-of-the-art fitness centre. With a base in the Central Business District, you have easy access to some of the city’s most desirable dining venues, shopping centres, cultural landmarks, and, for hot and sunny days, the beach!
