The death of a woman after a buck's party in Melbourne's CBD at the weekend is not being treated as suspicious, although police are yet to confirm exactly how she died.

The woman, believed to be aged in her 20s or 30s, is yet to be identified after she was found dead in a shower at Oaks on Market hotel on Sunday morning.

It is understood police are awaiting the results of a toxicology report, but have ruled out foul play.

"[We] are not treating the death of a woman located in Melbourne's CBD as suspicious," police said in a statement on Monday morning.

"The circumstances surrounding the death are being investigated and further reports are expected to assist with the cause of death."

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

Detectives spent the day combing the 10th-floor apartment, which had been booked by 11 men from the ACT and NSW.

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

Four of the men who attended the buck's party are assisting police with their inquiries. They were interviewed and then released without charge on Sunday night.

Homicide detectives are assisting local detectives with the investigation and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
