    Sofitel Melbourne on Collins

    Melbourne, Australia

    Location, location, location is not the only reason Sofitel Melbourne on Collins is one of the city’s most coveted address, although its perch at the “Paris” end of prestigious tree-lined Collins Street is pretty impressive. But so is everything else about this elegantly restored French-refined hotel. Steeped in “joie de vivre,” the hotel boasts American Oak furnishings, mirrored screens and handcrafted Italian chandeliers in its graceful interior. Evolving into a “living art gallery born over 13 years,” the Sofitel takes special pride in its revolving fine art treasures and hosts 16 major art exhibitions at the hotel annually. Guests can enjoy more artistic gems, of the cocktail and culinary kind as well, in the gallery style Sofi’s Lounge and the private dining room in No. 35.  At the end of the day, retire to your guest room, classically dressed in sophisticated elegance with fine fabrics, mood lighting, black out shutters and a Sofitel MyBed for a restful sleep. With all the attention to detail and comfort you’ll find here, you won’t be surprised to learn that your marble bathroom was designed to soothe away the worries of the day too, with low-level lighting and French toiletries as part of the pampering!
