What a cool hotel!!! I had never been inside this place before until a friend showed me last night. WOW very very cool!
A bit of history….This amazing 19th century venetian-style property was designed by celebrated architect William Pitt. Built in 1891, the hotel began its life as two separate buildings, housing the famous Melbourne wool stores and offices. The bluestone cobbled laneway between the Rialto and Winfield buildings once echoed the clatter of horse and carts conveying wool and wheat to Melbourne’s wharves, and is still retained in its original form in the basement level of the hotel today. The buildings are joined by a glass atrium.
What a cool city I live in :)
