The Hotel Windsor Melbourne Events
Located in the heart of Spring St in Melbourne’s CBD, The Windsor stands apart from the renovated shop fronts and modern skyscrapers. One of a few surviving treasures from Melbourne’s glamorous past, The Windsor is a historic 19th Century building featuring a heritage grand staircase, glittering chandeliers, and period architecture.
Several event spaces, including a grand ballroom, play host to a range of events and special occasions. A vintage-style wedding would suit the space as much as a corporate function, anniversary party, or end-of-year gala. Whatever category your event falls under, you’ll experience the same unparalleled service and attention to detail from the events team and catering staff.
What makes The Windsor an even more exciting event space is that it’s a functioning hotel with 180 luxury guest rooms onsite. This makes it the perfect home base for multi-day conferences, as well as weddings that have guests travelling interstate or overseas.
A luxury hotel comes with a luxury culinary experience. The Windsor offers guests a full catering experience curated by talented in-house chefs. Plated meals and buffet-style options are available, and Indian cuisine is easily catered upon request.
In close proximity to some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks and gardens, The Hotel Windsor is understandably a popular destination. With parking, public transport, and rideshare options close by, your guests will find getting to and from the venue a stress-free experience.
