A friend and I recently stayed in 2466 on a trip to attend a concert. We paid $250 a night on a web deal.
Check in was smooth and the operator was friendly. The room (a twin, with two queen beds) was lovely and the view spectacular (over convention and the river).
The bathroom lacked privacy (frosted doors for the shower and toilet were pretty well see-through, and the surrounding sliding doors kept little noise in). Lighting was also terrible for makeup application. There was no bath but the bathroom was of good size.
The gym was really well equipped (multiple of most cardio items, and plenty of weight systems) and the pool AMAZING. It was far more relaxing in the morning/midday, by afternoon it started to fill up with kids practising their 'bombs'
The ice machine on our floor was broken and remained that way for the duration of our stay despite us reporting it daily.
We only at from the hotel (room service) once, meals were mixed in quality/taste.
The hotel was well located, with a walkway on the first floor connecting it to the casino complex. A tram stop was just across the road, or the casino stop a slightly longer walk. The 96 tram made it super easy to get in to the city or St kilda.
Overall I enjoyed my stay but a few factors that should be easily rectifiable stopped it from reaching full marks.
