Airport Transfers

We are approximately 30 minutes by car or taxi from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport. Alternatively, the Skybus Airport Shuttle is only $19 per person each way and takes approximately 1 hour. Skybus will drop you off on Little Bourke Street, directly in front of the Mercure Welcome Hotel. Advance bookings are not required - simply proceed to the Skybus desk at the airport terminal. 


If you are arriving by car, private vehicles are not permitted on Swanston St - so please use our vehicle entrance at 265 Little Bourke Street. To get to this entrance, you can enter Little Bourke Street (please note Little Bourke Street is a one-way street) from Spring, Exhibition or Russell Streets. Immediately after you pass Swanston Street, you will find our vehicle entrance in Louden Place (on the left side of Little Bourke Street). You can then leave your car at our front door and let our professional valet parking service take care of it - valet parking is available for $45 per night.

Our self-parking car park is through our friends at Carepark who are located at 180 Russell Street. Self-parking with Carepark is charged at $20 per 24 hours OR per exit. To obtain this rate you will need to have our reception team validate your ticket. Please call us on 1300 650 315 or email
