InterContinental Melbourne picked as a world best

InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has received another validation as one of the world's best hotels, with its inauguration into the prestigious Kiwi Collection.

Offering the world's largest independent selection of hotels, Kiwi Collection assembles the very best places to stay for its clientele of discerning international travellers.

The inclusion strengthens InterContinental Melbourne's reputation as a top luxury hotel, adding to such achievements as being named Australasia's Leading Business Hotel by World Travel Awards 2010 and recognised as one of the world's best new hotels by both Conde Nast Traveler and Wallpaper*.

"Our inclusion by Kiwi Collection among the best luxury hotel destinations from around the globe is yet another example that InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto's offering – our people, facilities and experiences – is world class," InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto general manager Joerg Boeckeler said.

The only international high-end hotel in the city's financial business district, InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto is built within the impressive 19th Century Victorian Rialto building on Collins Street, surrounded by the laneways, attractions and experiences that give Melbourne its international appeal.

Behind its Gothic fa├žade, InterContinental Melbourne is a sleek yet intimate luxury hotel, home to a unique suite collection, exclusive Club accommodation and Club lounge, the indulgent East Day Spa and a Scandinavian-inspired rooftop swimming pool.

In addition to its variety of dining experiences and bars, including Alluvial Restaurant and Guy Grossi's newest venture, Merchant, the hotel is surrounded by some of Melbourne's best restaurants, including Shannon Bennett's new Vue de monde on the 55th floor of the adjacent Rialto building.
