We stayed over a very busy weekend in Melbourne and consequently the price we paid for the room was more than what you can normally get it for. That being said, the choice was a great one. We had a fantastic view of the Yarra and down towards the city. The room was very spacious and whilst not super fancy it was very clean and comfortable. They have a pillow menu which is appealing. The bathroom is quite small but that didn't bother me. You would find it a bit squeezy with two people in there. The breakfast was great, really varied and a dedicated egg station and a juicing machine to make your own freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice. The service was good and the location whilst on the edge of the city in some respects it is very accessible via tram or across to the Casino precint is a simple walk. I think the view the room had really made this hotel a stand out choice for a night out. I'd definitely come back if I got a good rate and could book a room with a similar aspect as the one we had.
