Melbournes central business district is graced by the luxurious accommodations of the Marriott Hotel Melbourne packaged in a boutique size and delivering luxurious service. Situated at the Paris end of the city, the hotel sits among theaters, restaurants and boutique shops, providing a wealth of activities and commerce for guests, no matter their agenda. For business or pleasure, the Marriott Hotel is ten stories tall with 197 individual rooms and 19 suites, but the facility supports a system that keeps everything private and pampered.

Considered the cultural heart of Australia, Melbourne is a vibrant city by night and full of interesting sites, activities and events to fill any amount of time in the day. Its reputation for serious fashion sense is evidenced on the surrounding streets by the countless specialty boutiques as unique and charming as the hotel. The Flinders Lane Gallery exhibits the finest of Australian contemporary art.
Chinatown, a cultural potpourri in any city, is nearby. The Crown Complex, located in Southbank, offers a great selection of live entertainment options, movies and interactive games like laser skirmishes and bowling. The State Library of Victoria, a massive 22 building complex for study and research, and Federation Square, housing significant cultural exhibitions, lie close to the hotel doors.
Beyond the city limits of Melbourne, The Great Ocean Road along the coastline provides magnificent scenery at points such as the Mornington Penisula or a cruise to Phillips Island for the Penguin Parade. Inland, one can sample the Yarra Valley wine region or experience the diversity and tranquility of Gippsland and Grampians National Park.
