Quintessentially Melbourne

Behind the facade

Escape and experience authentic Melbourne behind our dramatic neo-gothic facade. Take a journey to 1890 complemented with personalised service and the luxury you expect from InterContinental.

We set the standard for elegant travel.

A five star hotel with the perfect mix of old and new

Step inside InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto and let our ten-storey glass topped atrium take your breath away.

The gothic-style façade, high ceilings, ornate windows and original brickwork are a beautiful juxtaposition to Melbourne’s famous laneway graffiti. Where old meets new and character melds perfectly with style.

Perfectly located with a prestigious Collins Street address in Melbourne’s city centre, our quintessentially Melbourne accommodation offers 253 beautiful rooms and iconic suites. As well as best-in-class facilities, close to the city’s hot spots and best shops.
