You would think that escaping to a small, fashionable hotel in the centre of Australia’s second biggest city would be a difficult proposition. Melbourne’s busy Central Business District is a world of towering buildings and rushing commuters, edged by the graceful, serpentine sweep of the Yarra River. But among the clatter and traffic of this hectic labyrinth, there are a surprising number of discreet little pied-à-terre places, perfect for an overnight escape or as a base for your big city adventures. In Melbourne’s CBD you can overdose on urban action, then retreat to the sanctuary of your boutique hotel whenever you please.
From the sandstone neo-Gothic of St. Paul’s Cathedral, all the way over to the Victoria Market, you and your partner can indulge in a pick-n-mix of heady inner city delights. Slide into a sidewalk table at a hipster-filled Laneway café; swap one-liners with the stall-holders in the markets; inhale the intoxicating aromas of Chinatown over on Little Bourke Street; and dine in style at a penthouse restaurant halfway to the sky. And when it all becomes too much, you can retire to the seclusion of your chosen hotel and pamper yourselves. So don’t wait a minute more. Leave all your cares behind and head downtown.
