When I saw that Melbourne has been dubbed the coffee capital of the world, I decided it’s time to dive in and see what this city down under has to offer! However, the hospitality design found at St. Jerome’s The Hotel caught my eye and is definitely something to write home about.
The website has this to say – “The Hotel is taking luxury camping to the next level in the heart of the Melbourne CBD on the sprawling rooftop of Melbourne Central.
The site is home to 21 premium canvas bell tents (6 x Luxe, 12 x Luxe Plus, 3 x The Lodge), dressed with all the lavish trimmings expected of a luxury hotel.
Fall asleep cosy under the stars against Melbourne’s skyline and wake up to 360-degree views of the city, with complimentary breakfast and your choice of local filtered coffee or tea delivered in the morning.
Guests can enjoy a spacious bell tent featuring a double or queen size bed dressed in premium linen, throws and robes, split system heating and cooling, a tablet loaded with movies, and even a complimentary stocked esky with beer and cider.
Embark on an unparalleled urban experience while enjoying an activity-filled accompanying itinerary, including a game of ten-pin bowling next door at Strike Bowling, a cocktail at Cocktail Hour, Gelato Messina dessert delivery, morning meditation on the rooftop & more.
Additional amenities include a 24-hour concierge service, a General Store serving as the bar and communal area, an infrared sauna, plus nine amenity units with toilets and showers.
Here, where up is down from the rooftop to the ground, your private oasis in the city centre awaits.
The Luxe Plus is our larger canvas bell tent measuring 5m in diameter. Inside the Luxe Plus, you’ll find a queen size bed with premium linen, throws and robes, a split system air conditioner, and a complimentary stocked esky with beer and cider.
