InterContinental Melbourne

InterContinental Melbourne

Welcome to InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto, where world-class luxury has been redefined for Melbourne. Step behind the heritage facade and experience for yourself the juxtaposition of Melbourne's old and new. The Rialto Building is architecturally significant as one of the finest 'boom style' buildings in Melbourne. It is an integral part of an exceptional group of late Victorian commercial buildings in Collins Street.

Be transported from the 1890's neo-gothic façade and be immersed in a lifetime's experience in luxury, housed in a much loved Melbourne landmark. Five-star luxury hotel located on prestigious Collins Street, a timeless heritage building offering modern luxuries. Built-in 1891, the hotel began as two separate buildings that housed the famous Melbourne wool stores and its offices. Completed during the Gold Rush, when Melbourne was the richest city globally, 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." 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 the floorboards. Both the Rialto and Winfield buildings were designed to facilitate the new commercial enterprise style emerging at the time. They offered tenants the latest modern technology, with street-level shopfronts, overhead offices, and basement warehouse space.

Named after the commercial district in medieval Venice, the Rialto building was one of the finest examples of 19th-century Gothic architecture and a commercial modernity symbol. With a unique adjoining laneway connecting them, the Rialto and Winfield buildings were perfectly designed for Melbourne's new commercial center. These magnificent buildings were transformed by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, with the hotel opening in December 2008. The Rialto Building is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register and protected by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria).
