This hotel certainly has all the character of a bygone era. The room we stayed in was large and comfortable and the decor was in keeping with the architecture of the hotel. We did not eat in the hotel as it is so close to so many other cafes and restaurants, but the dining room looked exquisite and unfortunately the high tea for which the Windsor is renown was booked out so we didn't get a chance to experience it. Book in advance if you want the high tea. Right outside our door was the free city circle tram that takes you to downtown Melbourne and right around to the Docklands area and back up through LaTrobe Street. After watching an AFL game, we enjoyed a beer or two at the Cricketers Arms which is attached to the hotel. Lots of cricketing memorabilia. A very pleasant stay.
