Right next to the Princess Theatre at 111 Spring Street in Melbourne is the 5 star Hotel Windsor. This elegant hotel opened its doors in 1883 predating many of the grand old hotels from the Victorian era, such as the Plaza in New York, and the Ritz Carlton in Paris. Over the decades it has attracted many politicians and celebrities and is known as Melbourne’s finest hotel. The Windsor is a heritage protected building and the ambience reflects the Victorian era inside and out.
There are seven types of accommodations available ranging from a traditional room to a royal suite. Choose from three rooms, or four different suites to suit all tastes and budgets. Regardless of the room selection there will be marble in the bathrooms, and no less than 10 selections of pillows from Murdock London (UK).
