Located on the Paris-end of Collins Street, Sofitel Melbourne offers a classic take on luxury accommodation. Many come just to admire the spectacular 15-storey mirrored chandelier and drink in the 35th-floor Atrium Bar (right).

To get city-wide panoramas to yourself, stay in one of the hotel’s Opera Suites, which are located on the 50th floor and offer 180-degree views. They also come with an eight-person dining table for in-suite hosting.

The Langham Melbourne

Offering sweeping vistas of the Yarra River and Melbourne skyline, The Langham is a sanctuary from the bustling city streets. Guests can make use of myriad facilities including the expansive Chuan Spa and dine in the award-winning Melba.

The Chairman’s Suite is the height of luxury with beautiful views and opulent decor throughout. A stylish office makes it the perfect fit for the busy executive, but for a more al fresco experience, opt for the Executive Terrace Room, which comes with its very own balcony.
