The best hotels in Melbourne can be found within the city center and beyond, and range from full-service brands to charming boutique accommodations. The big-name hotels (Hyatt, Hilton, InterContinental) are here, alongside luxury hotels like Crown Towers and the Langham, with their sparkling skyline views and more modest digs by the beach. The Tolarno, in the lively beachside suburb of St Kilda, even has two-bedroom suites for families or a group of friends. For art lovers wondering where to stay in Melbourne, the city is something of a dream come true: this is the home of the Art Series Hotels, a group of four chic addresses that are each inspired by a single local artist, including the Olsen and the Cullen.
