Urban, more inspiration, more indulgence, more taste, more than a hotel!

Melburnians don’t have to leave town to get a hit of winter sea, sand, outdoor dining and promenading. They can take a midyear ‘staycation’ (stay-at-home-vacation) at Hotel Urban, St Kilda, only 100 metres from the beach on cosmopolitan Fitzroy Street, with a special winter room rate starting at just $129 a night.

Secreted in busy Fitzroy Street, St Kilda’s Hotel Urban is not your typical hotel. A little more boutique than city hotels, it boasts 80 plush, elegant, but extremely comfortable rooms. Named in Trip Advisor’s 2012 list of top trendy Australian hotels, Hotel Urban is full of unique touches such as iconic St Kilda locations wallpaper ‘muraled’ on the inside of the lifts, and fantastic vibrant colours in the rooms including all new contemporary designed pillows, bedding and furniture.

All guest rooms come equipped with complimentary Foxtel on large flat screen TVs, an in-room iPod dock, high fidelity Bose Speakers and a Tivoli state of the art clock radio. My home for the night, the Urban Round Room spectacularly features in-room double spa bath, an enormous LCD screen TV, king size Urban Snorer bed, and many more luxuriant comfort trappings.

Let’s face it, there are never enough annual leave days and taking that much-needed break is often harder than it should be, so Hotel Urban, St Kilda, want to keep it simple: for $129 you get a room for the night with access to all Hotel Urban’s amenities, free entry to St Kilda Sea Baths (spa, pool, sauna and gym), super comfy beds called ‘Urban Snorers’, ‘Slow Down Slippers’ and ‘Tie Me Up Tightly’ bath robes, plus Evo branded bathroom products and a mini bar stocked with staff favourites; MilkDuds, Berrocca and quality local wines, all without the hassle of travelling to the airport.

Not only is Hotel Urban, St Kilda, 100 metres from the beach, it is also walking distance to all St Kilda has to offer; there’s shopping, sunbaking, lazy lawn bowls, Luna Park and Penguins at the end of the iconic St Kilda Pier. On the bustling drinking and dining scene there is ice-cream and cake-lined Acland Street with new Abbey Road or the award winning Blue Corn restaurant (worth a visit), and some of Melbourne’s finest ‘high end’ restaurants in Fitzroy Street, including Guy Grossi’s Mirka, Café Di Stasio, Circa The Prince, Golden Fields, and more.

Even closer to your room you’ll discover your own highly reputable eating and coffee spot; Hub. Hotel Urban’s café that blows the theory of boring hotel breakfasts into Port Phillip Bay and gives you lunches that are attracting business and tourists a plenty, in front of the warm winter fire place, lit every day.
