For over two the Como decades it’s been the grande dame of Chapel Street, with stylish rooms and an effortless, undeniable charm. It’s also a haunt for celebrities (Channel Ten is next door, so it’s the obvious place for the network to plonk visiting VIPs) – especially since it boasts the jacuzzi’n’grand piano’n’private terrace Como Suite. Now that is fancy.
Looking for somewhere to stay in Melbourne? For some people luxury is all they want from a hotel, the more stars the better. For others it's the bottom line that interests them, or maybe all they care about is the location.
But there's also the group of hotel hunters that want somewhere just a little bit different, somewhere with a story or unique selling point – somewhere boutique. Sound like you? Fortunately Melbourne's boutique hotel scene is heaving with interesting stays available across the city.
