MELBOURNE | Meriton Suites Melbourne is a new luxury apartment hotel in Melbourne’s CBD. I’ve stayed at Meriton’s apartment hotels in Sydney and the Gold Coast several times in the past, and have always had a good experience, so was keen to see how their first apartment hotel in Melbourne compared. Receiving an invitation to check out Meriton Suites Melbourne soon after it opened, I accepted and checked it out.
The hotel is located on King Street. It’s a short walk from Southern Cross station, very convenient if you’re getting the SkyBus in from the airport. Marvel Stadium is just around the corner, making Meriton Suites Melbourne a good option if you’ve got tickets to a game or even there.
The William Street/Bourke Street tram stop is a three minute walk away, giving you easy access to South Melbourne, Toorak, and South Yarra on the 58 tram, Collingwood and Fitzroy on the 86 tram, or St Kilda trendy Brunswick East on the 96 tram. All of these neighbourhoods are filled with some of Melbourne’s best food and drink spots, and boutique retailers.
Meriton Suites Melbourne offers 298 spacious apartment-style suites. The rooms range from studio apartments through to one, two, and three bedroom suites. If you’re really looking to splash out, there are two penthouse suites with luxury detailing available. I stayed in the one bedroom luxury suite.
Rooms are clean and modern with white and neutral tones, natural materials, and floor to ceiling windows. The open-plan main room features a dining table, couches and coffee table,
Each suite includes a residential-sized kitchen with European-style appliances. There’s a dishwasher, kettle, and pod coffee making mashine, and a full set of plates, utensils, cups, pots and pans etc. Rooms also feature large, flat-screen TVs which you can connect your own devices to using Staycast™ TV streaming.
All suites also feature a laundry with a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, and bathrooms with toiletries from the KEVIN.MURPHY Repair Me range, and ghd hair straighteners. Beds are comfy and the pillows are nice and plush. A nice touch is that all king beds can be split into two single beds if you need.
There’s free Wi-Fi in all rooms (and throughout the hotel), and multiple Australian standard power outlets.
Amenities at Meriton Suites Melbourne include a fully equipped gym and fitness centre; and indoor pool, spa and sauna. If you need any assistance during your stay, the Guest Services team is on call 24/7.
For those with a car, there’s no parking on-site, however paid public parking nearby and street parking is available to guests.
Eat & Drink
Being a serviced apartment hotel, there’s are no bars or restaurants, however there’s an on-site coffee bar, and vending machines for snacks and drinks. With so many fantastic food and drink offerings in every direction from the hotel, and the in-room kitchen facilities, the lack of on-site restaurant and bar isn’t really and issue.
