Just down at 205 Collins Street is the most elegant, stylish hotel in Melbourne - The Westin. As you enter the lobby you'll be greeted by their friendly staff, and have your breath taken away by their beautiful interior. But that's only the beginning…Here’s my experience.
Making my way up in the lift and exiting on the 6th floor, I swiped my key card and entered the room. I was blown away by the most phenomenal view - windows overlooking the historic St, Paul's Cathedral, and Melbourne's City Square. I was also greeted by some healthy kick start snacks and a menu that was beyond delish.
I waited for the sun to set and saw the lights come out to play as the city came to life in the night.
I just couldn't take my eyes off Melbourne, as I was entranced by everything happening in front of me. The Juliet balcony sets the tone for old romance, but you'll also be able to see Melbourne's modern architectural heart from your room.
Downstairs you can kick back and enjoy high tea and watch the city go by, or you can head out and shop up a storm at all the high-end stores.
Once it was time to retreat and relax, the spacious marble bathroom with bathtub became home, as I sipped and enjoyed champagne whilst in the bubble bath.
But, if you are one who is all about health and fitness and don't want to miss out on your regular routine on your holiday or work flight, The Westin offers amazing packages to help you pack light and stay fit. The Westin Melbourne offers New Balance® shoes and clothing for you to use during your stay for only $5.00AUD. Guests can request the appropriate shoe and clothing size, and they will be conveniently delivered to their guest room. Shoes come with socks that are brand new and for the guest to keep, and the clothing is provided fresh and clean.
And, you'll no longer need to run alone.
Combine your workout routine with fresh air and local scenery with the RunWESTIN℠ program. Running maps have been developed that take in the local sights and guests are even welcome to join a group run with a Run Concierge. Either way, they are welcomed back with a fresh towel and cold bottled water.
As they say....
Sleep Well, Eat Well, Move Well, Feel Well, Work Well and Play Well.
Special thanks to The Westin for having me.
