Hi we stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite which was just lovely. The sunken spa bath in room, with view felt decadent.The staff were always friendly and keen to help. Location is ideal, close to theatres, restaurants and the main shopping mall area. Easy to access trams and buses if you want to go further afield. The beds... More

We travelled from Regional Victoria and met friends after a live show and ate in the lounge before returning home.This was an ideal location near the theatres and made for a very good rounding off of what was a special time. The service, food and location was perfect for what we required. No need to book!

This hotel was situated in the theatre district . It was only a short walk to approx three theatres. Very close to Chinatown, many restaurants & to Bourke St. Approx. 3 block walk to catch tram to Vic. Markets. An excellent location for a great hotel.

Booked on line for this hotel though Qantas travel where it was rated 4 star. It was no where near what I have experienced in 4 star hotels around the world. The room was tiny, the hallways smelly. And the King bed was not a King double, but a tiny single. Having booked and paid, we left, the staff uninterested... More

I recently stayed here with my partner for our anniversary. We booked a spa suite, and the room was of good size, and the majority of the room was clean and looked fresh. Our room was on level 6, which proved to be ridiculously noisy. My partner is a heavy sleeper so he didn't notice, but I could hear trucks,... More

Stayed 2 nights as was in town to see Les Mis at Her Majesty's Theatre opposite the property. Tim at check in couldn't do enough for us from confirming the rest of the family's rooms for the next day to helping with Rewards Card previously applied for. Room was spacious with the best bed we have slept in for ages.... More

Hotel is located at the top end of Melbourne CBD, 20 minute walk to the MCG and 5 minute walk to Bourke Street shopping. Recently refurbished so looks smarter and they are trying hard to lift its presence. Rooms are essentially accommodating the business travelers who will spend 1 or 2 nights. Bathroom's are small that you have to 'negotiate'... More
