I think I would agree with "Ann R" about this hotel — it's clean, consistent and reasonably comfortable, but a long way from modern, stylish or even truly business-like. Most of the guests seem to be tour groups (which is fine) but in terms of a really productive work-place, this falls a little short. My visit to the hotel was... More

Always our preferred choice when staying in Melbourne - very clean, consistently comfortable and pleasant experience. Fabulous position. The staff are both professional and friendly. This hotel offers all the advantages of a large hotel, without the high-rise and without the long impersonal corridors.

In the Carlton Best Westin Travel Inn. So we have been waiting at reception for 20 minutes, we have all the paper work of our pre paid booking but they cant find it. There is one poor staff member at the front desk and a BUS load of clients all waiting to be attended to. The phone keeps ringing and... More

First the room was bigger than expected, bed big and comfy to roll around in a couple times and modern bathroom and overall feel. Fabulous location for amazing food and into the city. But, the pool is not as big or deep as the pix suggest. There is no gym facility within the compound, you have to go outside to... More

Close to Lygon St, Melbourne Museum and the Skyline airport transfer will drop nearby. Consistently good and great value - half the price of other hotels. Whether staying for business or holiday convenient to tram. I stayed Grand Final weekend and had an easy walk through the parks to the MCG. No spectacular views from the rooms but great base...

This hotel stinks of marijuana and has no biscuits (Is this because everyone on the munchies is eating all the biscuits?!). It smells rank. Don't stay here. On the only positive, there is a bible in the side drawer, which is useful as a dinner tray in an emergency.

The Internet Wifi connection did not work and as a result I had to go outside at 8am the next morning in search of a WiFi connection to participate in an Internet conference. The very purpose of me checking into a hotel room to attend the Internet based conference in peace and quiet was defeated. My friend and I tried... More

Good hotel for business or pleasure if in Carlton, comfy room, good service, parking on site. Staff were helpful and the express checkout meant no queuing in the morning. 11am checkout a bonus and close to Lygon street for great food.
