Visiting rock stars and celebs choose this hip property at the "river end" of the boutique-and-café-sprinkled neighborhood of South Yarra. VIPs get all of the amenities they're used to here: 24-hour room service, a penthouse fitness center (where the 25-meter, generally deserted pool is topped by a retractable roof), in-room massages, attentive service, and tighter-than-average security. The 107 stylishly outfitted rooms and suites come in 25 different floor plans. Some are geared for entertaining, with kitchens, dining areas, and French doors opening onto Japanese-style gardens; others have separate offices. All have sleek modular couches, shag rugs, entertainment systems, oversize baths, and moody lighting, as well as broadband and video-conferencing facilities. The Brasserie, a glass-walled breakfast area, is so bright you might need to wear shades—but the buffets are a great hangover cure.
