Boutique Luxury at the Jasper Hotel Melbourne
From the foundation of its roots as the YWCA, a 4.5 million dollar renovation created a stand-alone property in the Jasper Hotel Melbourne that is not confined to traditional hotel approaches, but balancers a determination to offer the city a truly innovative boutique experience with budgetary concerns, keeping a social contract intact. The elegant result moderates a remarkable monument to beauty and style packaged for the common customer, enjoyed by many, appreciated by many more.
Standard rooms to two bedroom suites are available on eight levels, appointed distinctly with simple furnishings and a splash of color and woodwork. A mini-bar and fridge, LCD television, internet access, air conditioning and the usual amenities are standard in each along with exceptional views of the city. The ten open and versatile meeting rooms at the hotel, supported by a dedicated and experienced staff, function as the most elegant conference facility in the area for groups up to 600 delegations. For catering, room service or supplying the restaurant onsite, fresh local ingredients from the nearby markets are tastefully used by the chefs in the Jasper Kitchen.
With a reputation for style and fashion, Melbournes boutiques and unique restaurants spread out in all directions from the Jasper Hotel Melbourne, particularly the Queen Victoria Market, resplendent in 19th century vintage architecture and the Lyon Street Restaurant Quarter. Chinatown is a cultural display of fireworks nearby. Sports enthusiasts can rest at hotel between matches at the Rod Laver and Vodafone Arenas. Larger venues such as the Olympic Park Stadium, Melbourne Park Function Centre, and Etihad Stadium (formerly the Telstra Dome) are also in close proximity.

The Crown Complex, in addition to the Southern hemispheres largest casino, offers a great selection of live entertainment options, movies and interactive games like laser skirmishes and bowling for those who want to keep their feet on the ground.
