5 Star Hotel Deals Melbourne

Melbourne is a fun city to visit for anyone, a girls trip, family holiday or romantic night out

Having lived in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne for the last 25 years, I also love wandering the city between Monday and Friday on a day off, heading to old haunts, memorable alleyways and personal top coffee spots.

A bit of shopping and a delicious coffee or a meal. The city has a lively arts and foodie style vibe and some impressive older buildings if you’re keen to learn some of the cities history, or simply gaze down the tram lined streets.

The Melbourne CBD district is always changing, with new bars, modern coffee holes, and boutique shops popping up each season.

Melbourne is another city where the retail and food industry have been hit hard by COVID. A perfect reason to stay in Melbourne and support the local businesses and experience one of the best city luxury holidays Australia has to offer.

This is not a guide on booking the cheapest hotel in Melbourne, instead below are some of my top recommendations of hotel deals in Melbourne, Australia.


Quay West Suites Melbourne


Hotel deals in Australia, Quay West Suites.

On recently staying at Quay West Suites, we had a room at a reasonable price on the 9th floor. While not the cheapest hotel in Melbourne, the rooms are luxurious at standard and below average prices.

On arrival we were upgraded to a deluxe suite on the top level, with a balcony and a view of the Yarra river and Melbourne CBD.  Also included was a huge ensuite and separate kitchen.

This meant the world to us as we had a night out booked for an important occasion!

This is the room we were upgraded to.

Conclusion

Research your options + choose your stay in luxury accom!

There are heaps of luxury hotel deals in Australia out there, if you have the time to research.  Hopefully this post assisted you in planning your luxury holiday in Australia. 

In addition to keeping an eye on online deals, its also worth contacting hotels and asking what their deals are, or mentioning a special occasion.

If I am not offered an upgrade on arrival at a hotel, I usually ask if there are any free upgrade options, especially if the stay is during an off peak season.

Upgrades and deals are particularly common in 2021, obviously due to COVID and businesses attempting to keep a steady flow of customers.

I’d love to hear of any other luxury Australian hotel deals in 2021, or if you’ve had any experiences of recent upgrades and bonuses to your stay in a 5 star hotel!
