Generated summary (experimental)

Step inside InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto and let our ten-storey glass topped atrium take your breath away.
The gothic-style façade, high ceilings, ornate windows and original brickwork are a beautiful juxtaposition to Melbourne’s famous laneway graffiti.
Where old meets new and character melds perfectly with style.
Built in 1891, the hotel began as two separate buildings that housed the famous Melbourne wool stores and its offices.
The bluestone cobbled laneways between the Rialto and Winfield buildings, which once echoed with the clatter of horse hoofs as carts carried wool and wheat to the wharves, remains untouched under our floorboards.
Completed during the Gold Rush when Melbourne was the richest city in the world, the historic Rialto building was commissioned by Patrick McCaughan, a wealthy Melbourne businessman, and designed in the neo-gothic style by celebrated architect William Pitt.
Next door, the Winfield building housed the offices that serviced the wool and wheat stores in the late 1800s.
Designed by architects Richard Speight Jr. and Charles D’Ebro, the Australian National Trust lists it as “an example of the brick Romanesque style from the closing phase of the gold boom”.
This magnificent hotel was acquired by InterContinental Hotels and Resorts in December 2008 after a $60 million renovation and refurbishment.
Today, step behind its historic facade and experience for yourself the juxtaposition of old and new.
Perfectly located with a prestigious Collins Street address in Melbourne, our quintessentially Melbourne accommodation offers 253 beautiful rooms and iconic suites.
As well as best-in-class facilities and 11 meeting rooms, close to the city’s best food and shopping.
Five star luxury hotel accommodation; timeless heritage character with the modern luxuries.
Built in 1891, the hotel began as two separate buildings that housed the famous Melbourne wool stores and its offices.
