Are you looking for a French inspired luxurious five star hotel located in the heart of Melbourne City?  Then if you are, look no further than the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.  Nestled in the Collins Street Precinct in the city’s CDB, also known as the “Paris end” the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins is ideally located close to premium retail stores, fine dining and casual restaurants, theaters and many Melbourne attractions.

The Sofitel Melbourne on Collins features 363 rooms and suites and definitely has a room to cater to your needs and budget.

THE ROOM

We were lucky enough to experience the beautiful Junior Suite.  The open plan studio style suite, which was located on level 48 consists of a lounge area and a heavenly King Size bed which was positioned perfectly to capture stunning views over Melbourne CDB through the floor to ceiling glass paneled windows, and once the sun went down, the view was just spectacular.  The room was absolutely enormous and had plenty of room for our daughter to run around in while we sat back, relaxed on the couch, ate macarons and drank champagne. Oh the life….

The room also features romantic mood lighting, BOSE sound system, a well-stocked mini bar and 24 hours in room dining.  The Marble bathroom is just divine and featured a beautiful bathtub and a generous size walk in shower.  The bathroom was well stocked with Lanvin Products, enough for all of us plus some and let me tell you, it wasn’t just the standard soap, shampoo, conditioner and body wash, it was also a toothbrush and tooth paste, body loofah, cotton buds, nail files, shower caps, sewing kit and a few other bits.

There are plenty of storage spaces in the room, with the mirrored wardrobes hiding plush gowns, slippers, and the in room safe.  For those coffee lovers, there’s a great little Nespresso Machine with all the different flavoured capsules too.

OUR THOUGHTS

Overall we had a fantastic weekend at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.  It was truly a relaxing weekend in a luxurious hotel.  The staff was really amazing and very tentative to our needs and by the way, I LOVED the French accents.  This is one hotel that I would definitely recommend to all my friends, family and viewers.

The only notable missing aspect of the hotel is a swimming pool. Normally we love to go for a swim at every hotel we stay at, but the weather was so cold and raining, it didn’t really matter this time.  We really hope to come back very soon and indulge in this wonderful hotel again.  Thank you for having us Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.  It was truly a memorable weekend.
