The Location

The brand new Holiday Inn Express Melbourne Southbank is well located to explore the best of Melbourne’s food, shopping and cultural precincts.

In fact, this location is as good as it gets. Nestled in the heart of Southbank, Holiday Inn Express is a short stroll to many Melbourne attractions. Think CBD shopping, restaurants, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Crown Casino Complex. All are just a short stroll or tram ride away.

The hotel is also situated just 1.7 kms away from Rod Laver Arena. With very competitive rates available, this hotel could be an excellent base to take in the popular Australian Open tennis tournament (which runs from 20 Jan to 2 Feb 2020).
