Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Melbourne, Victoria, Australia!
Named after Lord Melbourne, one-time British Prime Minister, Melbourne (pronounced mel-burn) is swashbuckling Sydney's somewhat refined cousin, widely regarded as the cultural capital of Australia. Some of its finest architectural achievements occurred after gold was struck in Victoria during the 1850s and booming Melbourne became the fastest-growing city in the British empire. Melbourne, capital of Victoria and founded by free men and women rather than convicts (as was Sydney), also claims some of Australia's most prestigious schools and universities to accompany an impressive line-up of hotels and other lodging accommodations. Sports are big-time here, from the Melbourne Cup equestrian extravaganza on the first Tuesday of November to the tennis world's Australian Open every January in Melbourne Park. Visitors often maximize pleasure in soaking up Melbourne's atmosphere by just strolling around the city. When time constraints dictate seeing only one major attraction, hotel guests often opt for a trip to the Melbourne Zoo, with other favorites being the Rialto Towers Observation Deck, the National Gallery of Victoria, and the Botanic Gardens. Fairy penguins reside on nearby Phillip Island. Yarra River development has brought sparkle to a one-time eyesore transformed into a vibrant entertainment district called Southgate. From the Alexandria Bridge behind Flinders Street Station, pedestrians can tour through myriad bars, shops and restaurants on the south side of the river. Melbourne accommodations range from budget hotels and guest houses in neighborhoods of Carleton and East Melbourne to luxury hotels and other lodging properties in the city center and South Yarra.
