We stayed at this hotel because we were attending an awards night at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Albeit rather expensive, it was worth it because you could walk from the first level of the hotel to the convention centre without going outside. The room was well appointed with a beautiful comfortable queen bed (plus a single bed too) with beautiful linen, and a very large bathroom including a bath and separate shower. We also enjoyed a yummy buffet breakfast before checking out. It's about a 5 minute walk to the Crown Casino and there is undercover outlet shopping right next door. If you want to save money on parking, park across the road at the open-air parking and the hotel will validate your ticket so it only costs $20 (valid for 1 exit only). I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are willing to pay a bit more than other hotels in Melbourne, and especially if you are attending an event at the Convention Centre or Exhibition Centre.
