Police are yet to identify the woman found dead in the shower of a city hotel as questions remain about how she met the group of 11 men on a weekend buck's party.

The woman, believed to be aged in her late 20s to early 30s, was wearing a black long-sleeved top, blue denim shorts and white runners.

Five people were taken to hospital, 115 homes were evacuated and the fire is still burning at SKM Recycling.

It is believed she returned to the hotel room on the 10th floor of Oaks on Market with the men on Saturday night.

One of the men woke to find her dead in the shower on Sunday morning, Fairfax Media has been told.

A concerned hotel guest called police who arrived at the hotel, located between Collins Street and Flinders Lane, about 8am on Sunday.

Two of the men attending the buck's party told Fairfax Media they initially thought they were being "stitched up".

One of the men said the group had rented three hotel rooms for the night. They would not say who the deceased woman was or how they met her.

Homicide squad detectives spent the day combing through the 10th-floor apartment, which had been booked by the 11 men, who are from the ACT and NSW.

On Saturday several members of the group attended a football match, reportedly Geelong-Hawthorn, before heading to a King Street nightclub for a dance party dubbed Cloud Nine.

Some of the men were seen downstairs at the club between 2.30am and 3am.

Seven of the men, who have been described as witnesses to the incident, left the hotel about 2.30pm. The groom-to-be remained inside the hotel lobby, talking on his mobile phone.

Four men, aged in their 20s and 30s, were released from police custody late Sunday night, pending further enquiries.

Police are testing for the presence of illicit drugs. Their findings will not be available until Monday or Tuesday.

A group of women who stayed at the hotel overnight said they didn't hear anything unusual aside from sirens just before 8am.

Detective Nick Densley said an autopsy would be performed as soon as possible.
