Enjoy a staycation at DoubleTree by Hilton in the heart of Melbourne.
Melbourne – the home of good coffee, laneway street art, shopping hubs and of course, exceptional dining experiences. If you are a Melbournian like me, you would probably say that you have “been there, done that” when it comes to exploring what Melbourne has to offer. But have you treated yourself to a Staycation in our city centre to really engross yourself in the experience? Let me introduce you to DoubleTree by Hilton.
Nestled in a prime position opposite Flinders Street Station in Melbourne’s CBD, DoubleTree by Hilton provides a 187-room boutique-style hotel with spectacular views. With 600 hotels across 47 countries, it is no surprise DoubleTree by Hilton knows how to exceed your expectations. DoubleTree’s Melbourne location has the entire city as your oyster. Within walking distance to all the city’s landmarks including Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, Yarra River, National Gallery of Victoria and Degraves Street, you won’t be stuck for options for things to do.
Step into the urban style hotel and be greeted by friendly staff and a signature warm DoubleTree cookie (which are absolutely divine might I add). A variety of room types are available for all budgets, but if you can splurge, be sure to nab a room on Level 14. This top floor has undergone renovation evolving from a personal penthouse into seven new hotel rooms. The King Skyline River View with a balcony room will provide day and night picturesque views from the comfort of a stylish suite.
The in house restaurant, Platform 270, pays homage to its neighbour Flinders Street Station. Following in the design footsteps of the hotel with its urban design, the casual yet intimate setting is perfect for dinner or drinks. Coming in hot from the open kitchen is a modern Australian menu, with hints of Asian flair using fresh, local produce. Think fried chicken wings in Korean spicy sauce or fennel croquettes for a scrumptious starter. A range of mouth-watering burgers will also be on your radar, or perhaps an eggplant fatteh, spiced cauliflower or curry of the day. Of course, a range of tipples are also available to enjoy, including signature cocktails.
After your very comfortable overnight stay in your suite, head down to Platform 270 for breakfast. Or if you find the luxurious bed too cosy to leave just yet, text or call reception with your order for brekky in bed. You will undoubtedly find yourself wishing you can stay and relax for that little bit longer.
With Melbourne’s restrictions easing, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a little staycation at DoubleTree by Hilton. Whether you want to plan a busy day and evening making the most of what the city has to offer or take it easy and order room service while enjoying the view, DoubleTree by Hilton caters to all.
