Proven Success

The internal feedback we have received from staff who attended the meeting has been very positive. They thought the catering was excellent, particularly the lunch on the first day. Very happy with food choices available and quality of food on the day. We would certainly use the Intercontinental again for a meeting and would have no hesitation recommending the hotel to other areas of the business – Celgene (Pharmaceuticals).

The Sales Team have been an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Extremely professional and were very easy to deal with, no request seemed too much trouble. I will definitely be using the InterContinental Melbourne again – UCB Australia (Pharmaceuticals).

Easy Access To MCEC

InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto is the closest 5 star hotel located in the CBD grid to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Only a short 10 minute stroll or a 8 minute free tram ride.
