InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto opens its doors

The AU$60 million resurrection of Melbourne’s grandest heritage hotel is complete. The iconic The Rialto has re-opened as InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto, bringing one of the finest brands in international hotel luxury to Australia‘s most cosmopolitan and vibrant city. Guests can now experience the only luxury hotel in Melbourne’s financial district, transformed as one of the city’s last and best remaining examples of 19th Century Gothic architecture into a world-class international hotel by Joseph Pang Design Studio.  Pang and his team have married the historical aspects of a true architectural icon with an exciting and unexpected contemporary design. The result is an encapsulation of the spirit of Melbourne; a blend of rich and unique history with a cosmopolitan culture that cities the world over aspire too but rarely achieve. InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto offers all the facilities and services expected of a luxury international hotel, including a variety of five star dining establishments and bars, a stunning Club InterContinental overlooking Collins Street, private business environments and a unique suite collection that will take best advantage of the building’s Gothic heritage.
