Travelodge Docklands is in the city but still seemed to be a bit away from shops and restaurants. We found we needed to take our car or public transport to get into city as it was still a hike if we were to walk. Southern Cross station is very close by. As with any city parking, it was a bit expensive. The hotel itself was very clean and staff were happy to help where they could. However, rooms were quite pokey but at least they were clean.
