Fodor's Expert Review The Adelphi
187 Flinders La., Melbourne, Victoria, 3000, Australia
This "dessert hotel" focuses on sweet treats in its rooms and Om Nom kitchen dessert bar. The hotel's chic, funky design was created by local architects, Hachem. The pièce de résistance is the top-floor, 80-foot lap pool, which has a glass bottom jutting out from the edge of the building: bathers literally swim into space. This area is being refurbished but expected to be operating again in 2016. Top-floor bar views, framed by the Gothic spires of St. Paul's, are heavenly. The restaurant ezard serves daring Mod-Oz fusion fare.
