“Nice place to stay in Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I generally try to stay here when traveling to Melbourne.

Staff are friendly, check in efficient. Rooms are a reasonable size, and I was fortunate to be upgraded on this occasion.

Very comfortable bed and great pillows. As I am tall the shower in most places is a problem as I usually have to bend down. I am happy to say that in this property I can fit very comfortably under the shower in the room.

Being a work trip and pretty busy, I chose room service for my meal on the first night. Very nice overall and my steak cooked as asked (which is difficult to get in many places)

My only complaint, which is not at all a fault of the hotel is that being down one end of the city, all of my custoemrs on this occasion happened to be at the other end! Can't complain too much I suppose as the walk was definitely great exercise.

Would recommend and will be staying here again on my next trip/

Stayed here for work but will come back for holidays. Staff had great attitudes, always happy & helpful. Rooms have all the basics. Convenient to the city, short walk, tram or taxi. Restaurant food & service was the best I have seen in a while. Gym pool, sauna & outdoor area.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two night in March, it was ok, but nothing special about the hotel. It was generally clean, the linen on the bed had a dirty smell, like it had been left in the washing machine wet, so that was unpleasant, and there was makeup marks on the sheets also.
location was a little bit far from the areas of Melbourne that we like, its right on the edge.
Probably wouldn’t rush back to stay at the Holiday Inn.

This hotel is very convenient to the Skybus Terminal which takes you to and from Tullamarine Airport. It is a little bit of a walk to the main shopping precinct and Southbank but it isn’t too far and there is a taxi rank at the front which is very handy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms aren’t large but the beds and pillows are exceptionally comfortable. In fact, the bed was so comfortable I seriously overslept on the first night so had to set the alarm for the remainder of the stay.

Room Tip: There is a great steak place one block away from the hotel The Rare Steakhouse is not cheap but the...

This hotel is in a great location, quick 10 minute walk to Crown Casino and convention centre. Room was great, bed was perfect for a good nights sleep. Bathroom just a tad tired, could not got the plug in the bath to work. Breakfast was spot on and good quality. Great hotel. Only negative comments would be the price for a room and charge for wireless. Australia is just so expensive for hotels.

Nice smallish hotel 100m from the river. I was on a business trip and found it very convenient. Taxis right out the front, staff very nice and helpful. Room on the small side but nicely appointed and very clean. Air conditioning adjustable and quiet. Breakfast very good.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in February 2013. What a pleasant surprise! After a very long flight from the states it was wonderful to get to such a clean and comfortable room. The bed was great with a good selection of pillows. Room was the perfect size and the bathroom was updated and very nice. I had a room next to the street ont he 8th floor and it was quite.I ate at the restaurant and it had lots of choices and food was good. I walked all around the city and the hotel is only a couple of blocks from the Yarra River. There are a ton of nice restaurants along the river. The ladies at reception were very nice and helpful about walking and where to go. I had to come back to Melbourne a few days later but had to stay at another hotel. I would have preferred to stay at the Holiday Inn! It is one block from the Southern Cross Train Station, which was good for me.
If... if I had to pick anything bad about the hotel it would be that the hallways carpet is very worn and old. But once in your room it was all updated. I would highly recommend this hotel.
