"Spring is a magical time in Melbourne," David Perry, Hotel Windsor CEO and general manager, said. "The famous laneways and shops surrounding the hotel come alive, and there's the excitement of Melbourne's International Arts Festival and Spring Racing Carnival. The hotel's magnificent Victorian architecture, its award-winning exemplary level of service and the superb dining experiences offered at 111 Spring Street Restaurant, including the traditional afternoon tea, provide the perfect backdrop for that special romantic retreat."

The 180-room Hotel Windsor is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary. Built in 1883, it pre-dates some of the world's leading grand hotels including the Savoy in London, which was built in 1889, the Waldorf Astoria in New York which dates back to 1893, and the Ritz Paris which opened in 1898.
