We have stayed in many hotels in Melbourne and at this one on three occasions. The hotel has a bit of a feel of a convention hotel but I have never been annoyed by the groups. The suites are roomy but if you are looking for ambience go for a room with a view of the Yarra. This is probably the highlight of this hotel. It is located close to the casino and the start of the Southbank strip of restaurants. Trams are outside the front door or you can walk to the main shopping centre at Bourke Street in about a half an hour. There are better hotels than this in Melbourne but this is a good solid choice and if you can get a good rate it is worth it. One thing to note that it is part of a chain which offers discounts to club members (Priority Privilege) and so as a result of that non members probably pay a bit more than non club hotels as a way of subsidising the discounts offered to members.
