It's easy to explore this sunny, good-natured Victorian capital from our Holiday Inn® Melbourne hotels. Take a relaxed Aussie approach to sightseeing, with unhurried mornings at Queen Victoria Market and picnics in one of Melbourne's many parks.
Our hotels in Melbourne are a short ride from the center, where getting around is a breeze with the free city circle tram and sightseeing bus. Begin on strikingly postmodern Federation Square, home to the free Ian Potter Center, displaying indigenous Australian art. Across the river is its sister museum, the free National Gallery of Victoria, whose outstanding collection comprises Rembrandt and Warhol masterpieces. Our Melbourne hotels are close to Flinders Street Station, an Edwardian landmark with a decorative clock tower. Take your kids to see the living rainforest at the Melbourne Museum, or the squawking cockatoos flying overhead at the free Royal Botanic Gardens. When the sun shines, Melbourne's sandy beaches beckon.
Our Melbourne hotels are close to atmospheric Queen Victoria Market, which opened in 1878 and today sells farm produce, souvenirs and inexpensive clothing. Take a break with a coffee and pastry or snacks like pizza and sausages at one of the market's little cafes. Specialty stores huddle under the soaring glass roof of Melbourne's Royal Arcade. For good-value Chinese food fresh from the wok, explore neon-lit Chinatown, going strong since the gold rush of the 1850s. The city center is packed with restaurants and bars, serving everything from hearty pub grub to Modern European cuisine. Picnickers can enjoy the free barbecue facilities sprinkled throughout Melbourne's public parks and gardens.
Stay in our Melbourne hotels in summer for a feast of cricket, music and film festivals and lazy beach days. The Melbourne International Arts Festival, the biggest of its kind in Australia, is a true autumn highlight.

Great hotel in an unbeatable location

Will be back
We had a great 5 day stay at the Holiday Inn, unfortunately there are water work repairs in front of the hotel at the moment which it makes a little hard to access. And they start work on the rd very[More] early, hence waking up hotel guest. But this is in no way faults of the hotel. The staff are one of the most friendliest I have had the pleasure to meet, they go above and beyond to make you feel welcome.
The only down fall we had was are room needed vacuuming while we were there and this wasn't done. We should have requested for them to do it and it would have been no problem. Also the breakfast buffet was cold most of the time and not topped up well on somedays. But again these are only small issues that we were not overly fussed about. I will definitely be back to stay at the Holiday Inn[Less]

We were able to walk from hotel to our terminal, only a 5 minute walk, with a baby, toddler and 2 suitcases, this was perfect.Comfortable beds, options for pillows, was a great stay.[Less]
It’s just OK, the restaurant has a monopoly on guests, restaurant staff are slow, could care less attitude. We sat for 20 minuets after our table was cleared waiting on the bill, finally walked out[More] then they came chasing us down to pay. I told them I was tired of waiting and tried to flag them down but they were too busy doing nothing except talking to each other. Hotel over all was ok.[Less]
