Celebrate the Melbourne Cup Carnival in luxury
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®)
What better way to celebrate the Melbourne Cup Carnival season than off the track?
InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has transformed the luxury hotel, housed in an 1890’s heritage building, into your ultimate off track Melbourne Cup carnival experience over Derby Day, Melbourne Cup, Oak’s Day and Stakes Day.
The Mumm Garden:
Working with styling partners Melbourne Event Florals, (@melbourneeventflorals) one of Melbourne’s best floral styling companies, the hotel lobby has been transformed into a lush garden of deep red and blush florals to emulate the Flemington floral entrance and tee in with long term Melbourne Cup partners, G.H Mumm.
As you walk in, the entrance features a grand floral archway leading you into the atrium, with two white ivory horses standing proudly on the lobby pillars dressed in G.H Mumm soft silks. As you walk through the Mumm garden, you won’t be shy of opportunities to find your #mummmoment
