Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The lobby on the 80th floor with panoramic view of some of the highest skyscrapers in Melbourne was impressive. The highest Hotel in Australia and the newest in Melbourne is really amazing. Our room on the 65th floor, the lowest floor of the top 17th floor of the 80 floors sky scraper, has amazing panoramic view over the Marvel Stadium and Docklands Waterfront, especially at sunset the orange hues of the sky is veru beautiful. The room we got was also quite spacey even with one dinner table with 2 chairs and one coffee table with long sofa. Also we have to thank the receptionist for giving us the room although we arrive early at 7:30am while the regular check in time is at 3pm. All room and services were good, just that we might have chosen the wrong breakfast, the toasted sourdough was dry and hard with the skin very hard to break let alone to chew. I think the chef should learn how to make better more edible toasted bread. The location of the hotel is also not in the CBD, but still got many public transport 3 to 10 min walks from the hotel.

Melbourne has, as one would expect, a lot of expensive 5 * hotels… however most fail (some quite dismally) to really reach a level of luxury and attention to detail found internationally and that justifies the (usually extortionate) price. The (relatively new) Ritz Carlton changes that dynamic and completely delivers the goods. Check in is faultless, the room is beautiful, with gorgeous views over the bay. Everything in the exceptionally well designed room works - including the stereo (which connects remarkably easy to an iPhone). Bath has the view and the shower is huge. The toilet is also in a separate room which is nice change. King sized bed extremely comfortable.

The spa / massage on the 64th floor is so good that we went back the next day for another go. Pool is huge and a great area to relax. Gym brilliant and there are separate sauna / steam / jacuzzi areas for men and women. The bar serves stunning cocktails - each one of which has a story behind it, and the in house restaurant (Atria which I will review separately) is easily one of the best places to eat in Melbourne.

In summary this is a great place to stay - Melbourne finally has a serious contender that rivals the big names in HK and Singapore.

Soaring high above Melbourne, its tallest hotel offers an unparralelled experience. You will be warmly greeted in the lobby on level 80 and the views are as spectacular as you would imagine while the process is seemless, and enjoayble. The rooms are decadently appointed, spacious, offer amazing views day and night with bathrobes that scream absolute luxury, you wont want to take them off. We were on 74 in a harbour view room which we loved.

The food and beverage, whether it be room service, breakfast, bites in the Lobby Lounge and Cameo bar or dinner in Atria are all scintilating. Executive Head Chef Mr. Greenlaw delivers fresh local produce with tantalising flavours both bold and understated which will have you salivating for the next bite. The meal quality is equally matched by the F&B teams service lead by Director of F&B Mr. Vernes. It was so good we couldnt pick a winner from the burger, club sandwhich, chips, vine ripened tomatoes, brisket bagel, jamon mmelette, fruit platter, fruit toast or mousse......and of course the juice, spaciality coffee, pinot noir and champagne were divine.

The pool and spa are what dreams are made of, luckily we had a whole day to spend in there. The night we stayed was their highest occupancy since opening and yet it felt spacious, calm and completely seemless.

Above all the trappings, it really is the staff at The Ritz Carlton Melbourne that deliver a purely magical experience. They are professional, engaging and no matter their role, they talk to you openly, candidly and warmly. Meeting the Hotel General Manager, Mr. Page, at breakfast, its easy to see why.

We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful hotel. A special thanks to Simone at reception who is a real ambassador for the property.

The rooms are very spacious, well appointed and clean. The views are sensational. The pool and spa area is outstanding and was kept clean and well stocked at all times.

The staff were always helpful, polite and willing to assist whenever needed.

Our only negatives would be the lack of standard operating procedures. The inconsistencies in the turn down service was annoying. Please standardize this service, you either do turn down and do it properly, or don’t do it at all.

The restaurant for breakfast also lacked procedures to maintain consistency. Food items presented differently morning to morning, ingredients missing from dishes and inconsistent charging when on a package. This needs SOP’s

The food available in the lobby was also of lower standard than other offerings in the restaurant.

A couple of chess/backgammon boards wouldn’t go astray in the lobby and lower lobby.

All in all a wonderful stay and we would definitely return on our next trip to Melbourne.

Thanks team!!

Closed outlets, out of stock drinks and slow service describes my stay here.

I had high expectations but alas the RC Melbourne delivered service way below them.

Firstly I had several meetings in their lounge as their bar was closed on Mon and Tues and restaurant only open at night so I had literally no where else to meet people.

The lunch menu was minimal at the lounge, the dinner menu even smaller. Bizarre to give people less choice when they have meetings here and have no where else to go! Plus don't they want to make money?

During my meetings the service was incredibly slow. Half the time the staff couldn't locate food and drinks and just seemed to be wondering around in a daze despite their being staff around but who knows where they were when I needed them, not in the lounge.

Several times I had to ask reception if there was anyone to service me in the lounge. They said "of course" and I said well that's not my experience so far, why have I waited 20 minutes to place an order for drinks?

I would end up ordering multiple drinks at the same time as the wait to get them singulalrly was so long to get drinks!

In one of my meetings the hotel ran out of lager! How can the RC run out lager?

Later in the same meeting I asked for a lychee martini, not exotic, pretty standard martini, to be told that the RC did in fact not do lychee martinis as they had no lychees or lychee liqueur!

To his credit the manager Josh went to a local shop bought some lychees and came back and delivered a pornstar martini with lychees as he couldn't ind lychee liqueur.

He seemed embarassed that the hotel couldn't even meet my basic drinks expectations let alone exceeed them.

The rooms were nice but there was only a sofa with a desk to work from not a proper deck with a proper chair. Bearing in mind this was a business trip and there was no where else to work it wasn't ideal.

I was also surprised that the shower gel/shampoo etc was not easy to use.

I am also a Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador but as per the RC's policy I was not allowed into their club lounge. Given the above experiences though which I complained about you would think that I would have been but nope...

Overall I didn't feel that I was treated at all specially and actually felt that the hotel delivered an expericne that was way below what other RC's do and far below my expectations.

Although the facilities of the hotel are beautiful, we experienced a list of problems during our stay which made us think another hotel would have been a better choice. Curtains and light switches in our rooms didn't work. The pool and spa water heater was broken one of the two days we were at the hotel. Although the Marriott website says that connecting rooms are available, they are actually not (I was told they only have some limited accessibility rooms connecting via a strange common hallway arrangement). The mobile key system was only half working and in-app chat was not available. Some simple requests we made were never done despite multiple calls and promises they were working on it. Other little things were happening, like the elevator emergency call system being stuck on. I will add that the food and beverage options at the hotel were truly excellent so that was a highlight of our stay. The rooms and pool area are stunning but I think this hotel needs some time to fix its issues to give guests the full experience they expect from a RC.

I’m a big fan of 5 star luxury hotels like the Ritz and was extremely pleased with my choice. The rooms are large and modern and have plenty of space to relax in - and are incredibly quiet. The views are stunning. I dined in the restaurant twice for dinner and breakfast once during my five night stay. The service was impeccable, and the food was elaborately prepared and delivered amazingly fast from the kitchen. I had a few meals around CBD but didn’t find anywhere with better value (food, service, ambience) than the Ritz. I liked the location being out of the main tourist areas. It’s conveniently located near the skybus. Melbourne is an extremely walkable city and I was within 15- 30 minutes walking everywhere I wanted to go and when tired I simply hopped on the free trolley #86 that stops right outside the hotel. A big shout out to Josh the concierge. He has a wealth of knowledge about Melbourne and was my main connection to the Ritz and made my experience feel like a boutique hotel stay. Will definitely stay here again when in Melbourne.

Our stay was wonderful. The rooms were beautifully appointed with the latest styling and features and also had spectacular views. I especially loved the books in each room- it didn't hurt that one of my favourite books is the Sherlock Holmes series, with one of those in my room which I read during my stay. The spa and pool are amazing too. It was the nicest hotel I have stayed in, in a long time. There were many staff ready to jump to attention- I know it is a new hotel so they would be extra zealous but you really did feel special at this hotel whose brand is famous for its service. One negative is that the entrance to the hotel is along side the car entrance which is windy and a long walk around. Feels a little weird. However, we actually stayed an extra night (3 nights) as we loved it so much.

This was my 17th Ritz-Carlton property I have stay at and just WOW! This property exceeded all my high expectations from design, to service, even putting many other luxury hotels to shame!! The Ritz-Carlton Melbourne, the newest and undoubtedly the best hotel in the city, offers sky high views from both the 80th floor check in and from our room on the 75th floor.

Silvio, a true gem in their management service team, made our stay exceptionally memorable. His attention to detail and personalized service went above and beyond, making every moment special. We can’t thank you enough and do hope our paths will cross again.

A very special note of gratitude goes to GM Antony, whose leadership clearly shines through in the seamless operation and the impeccable service standards maintained across all departments. Thank you for your kindness and making time for us.

Dimitri showcased the hotel's restaurant with a warm and inviting tour. Charles at the front desk was also excellent. Also special thank you to breakfast staff, Chris, Peach, and Lewis, who ensured our morning breakfast was perfect in every way and took time to visit with us.

This experience has set the bar very high, making Ritz-Carlton Melbourne a shining star in the Ritz family and one of my new favorite hotels in the world! Can't wait to return!

We visited the Melbourne Ritz Carlton a few months after it opened — and it is quite possibly the nicest experience we have had at a Ritz. First, the hotel itself is stunning. One of the tallest buildings in Melbourne, the hotel starts out he 64th floor with the pool, with several floors of rooms culminating in the lobby on the 80th floor. Hotel staff was awesome, we ended up with a corner room on the 66th floor that was amazing with a great view. Great location, great hotel, one of our favorites of all the places we have stayed.
