Christmas is less than a month away and you’ve probably made a start on your shopping by now. But most of us have at least one person in our lives who is particularly difficult to buy for. If you’re looking for a gift for the person who has everything, or just something a little unusual […]
Planning a trip is exciting—especially if you’re going to Melbourne. And if you’re bringing the kids along, even better. They’ll love the Eureka Skydeck and dozens of other attractions just for the little ones, and there are tons of family-friendly hotels in Melbourne for you to choose from. Luckily for you, the experts at Expedia Australia have narrowed down the seemingly endless list. These hotels are convenient to the Skydeck and are sure to be fun for everyone.
Apartment hotels are great—they make you feel like you never left home, but you’ll also have room service and on-site dining restaurants. At the Pegasus Apart’Hotel, there are even kid-themed rooms, with racecar and rainforest décor that will thrill your little ones. Parents get some great amenities, too: the kitchenette for impromptu snacks as well as an on-site laundry for when those snacks get spilled.
You’ll be a hero with the whole family when you open the door to your gorgeous Victorian suite at the Hotel Windsor. There are all sorts of great things for you and the family to get into here, like afternoon tea and a phenomenal on-site restaurant. The hotel is within walking distance of some of the city’s best attractions, and you can easily get to the Skydeck on public transit.
Located on Little Bourke Street, the Mercure Welcome hotel is the perfect place to call home on your holiday. Their family rooms have a queen-sized bed and a single bed, with plenty of living space. After you get checked in, sit down for a meal at the on-site Soul Café and get the kiddos fed—they’ll need the energy to explore. You’ll be just over 1km from the Skydeck and an easy walk from other kid-friendly attractions as well, like the Old Melbourne Gaol.
If your idea of a relaxing day includes sitting around a refreshing pool under a blue sky, then you’ll love the Stamford Plaza. Their pool deck features a retractable roof, poolside dining menu and sun beds. So, while the little ones frolic in the shallow end, you and your significant other can order a swanky beverage and something to eat. That’s a win-win.
It’s never too early to teach the kids to be kind to the earth, whether you’re recycling your juice boxes or staying at an eco-friendly hotel like Citiclub. Not only is this spot easy on the planet, it’s also located in the heart of the CBD. Check out one of the great places to eat, then make the 15-minute stroll to the Skydeck and gaze down upon the city from high above.
Melbourne is an amazing place for families, whether your kids love a good museum or want to get their thrills from 285m up on the Skydeck. But first, you need a place to stay, so take your pick from our list, pack your bags and enjoy your holiday!
