Set right next to Fitzroy Gardens and opposite St. Patrick's Cathedral, this is one of Melbourne's most elegant hotels. It's also a popular choice for celebrities, though you'd never know: its slightly removed location and three entrances allow the famous to slip through unnoticed. Warm colors, rich wood paneling, and Art Deco–style furnishings adorn the rooms—all of which have walk-in wardrobes, king-size beds, Italian marble bathrooms, iPod docking stations, Nespresso
coffee machines, and roomy, modern work spaces. Suites are even more luxurious, some with fireplaces, terraces, and hot tubs. The seven-level radii restaurant and bar is artsy and chic; and contemporary artworks by international talents are on exhibit throughout the hotel (some are for sale). The day spa features an indoor aquamarine pool, spa, sauna, gym, and private sun deck, which is a popular option.
