I stayed at Dorsett Melbourne as a guest of Dorsett Hospitality International.
MELBOURNE | Dorsett Melbourne is a newly opened Melbourne hotel, located at the fast growing western end of Melbourne’s CBD, just across from Southern Cross station. It joins numerous new places to work, eat, and drink in the area.
This part of Melbourne’s CBD is unrecognisable from a decade ago, and it’s a great location. Southern Cross railway station, which will be your first port of call in Melbourne if you’re catching the SkyBus from the airport, is just across the road. You’re also just a few minutes walk from three tram stops, giving you access to tram routes 30, 35, 86, and 96. The latter is considered one of the world’s great tram routes. It gets you to many of Melbourne’s best attractions.
You’re in amongst what’s become Melbourne’s unofficial Koreatown, with lots of fantastic food options, and just a few minutes walk from Marvel Stadium and the Queen Victoria Market.
The hotel has 316 room and suites. There are nine different types of room available, ranging from the 26 square metre Deluxe Diva Room, to the 93 square metre Balcony Suite. Dorsett Melbourne is a pet-friendly hotel, and offers a number of dedicated pet-friendly rooms.
All of the rooms come with a firm, comfortable king size bed or two double beds, and soft pillows. There’s a small working desk, large flat screen smart TVs with Chromecast, a mini fridge, Lavazza pod coffee maker, and tea kettle.
There’s free Wi-Fi in all rooms (and throughout the hotel), a hair dryer, and iron with ironing board. In the bathroom, you’ll find chic marble finishes, a regular and rain shower, and a bathtub in larger rooms. Toiletries are from ELEMIS.
Dorsett Melbourne features a gym on the fifth level, kitted out with the latest TechnoGym equipment, weights, virtual personal trainers, and a sauna. It’s open daily from 6:00am until 10:00pm. There’s also a heated pool, open during the same time.
The hotel’s club lounge will be opening in June, and will give guests who have access, canapés and drinks during happy hour, and a number of other services.
If you’re looking to hold a business meeting or private function at the hotel, there are five meeting and event spaces. Each room can be configured in a variety of ways to suit your needs.
Eat & Drink
The hotel is home to two food and drink venues, Jin Bar, across from the lobby, and restaurant and breakfast space, Port Bistro.
Jin Bar draws inspiration from Victoria’s 1850s goldrush era, and is a great options for drinks and snacks. For breakfast, and a more substantial meal, Port Bistro offers a selection of classic dishes like burgers, steak, and fish ‘n’ chips, made using quality local produce.
