Quincy Hotel Melbourne
Time Out says
Have a colourful stay at this comfy, CBD hotel on Flinders Lane
Located on the corner of King Street and Flinders Lane, a short stroll from Melbourne Aquarium and the Immigration Museum, lies the Quincy Hotel, a colourful 241-room hotel.
Enter the lift and you’ll find the venue is cleverly themed around Melbourne’s laneway culture, with floor-to-ceiling graffiti wallpaper and modern upbeat tunes playing – this isn’t your usual elevator music.
Time Out stayed in the Hosier Club Room all the way up on level 26 – naturally, being up this high means you get wonderful views. This room specifically comes with views of Melbourne’s north-west. Put an alarm on for whenever sunset will be because you'll get to see the sky turn a pink that coincidentally matches the walls in the room and the tiles in the bathroom.
Complementing the pink are stylish gold trimmings throughout the room, as well as fixed amenities in the bathroom to cut down on waste. The mini bar is stocked up with snacks and drinks like canned cocktails from Archie Rose Distillery, seltzers from Moon Dog Brewery and Del Zotto canned prosecco.
Added comforts include a chaise long as well as a table with comfy, dusty pink velvet chairs located right by the window so you can enjoy your breakfast with a view.
If you can’t go a day without a sweaty workout, there’s a gym located on the 29th floor and a semi-outdoor rooftop pool, next to rooftop bar the Q, on the 28th floor. Hungry? You can dine at Salted Egg, the in-house, south-east Asian-inspired restaurant from executive chef Adam Woodfield (ex Chin Chin). You can find it by heading up towards level one via the gold-trimmed spiral staircase on the ground floor.
Time Out tip: Quincy Melbourne’s room keys double as ‘golden tickets’ to some of Melbourne’s hotspots, giving you access to perks like cocktails on the house and free access to local attractions.
