We are fortunate to have been located here for a week upon our first arrival in Australia to work. Like others have suggested, there are a few good reasons for choosing this hotel. Having stayed previously on various occasions, I have always enjoyed the proximity to the parks and the MCG, however this time staying with Mrs RTW, the extra yards were made to make our stay memorable.
We booked a suite which included for access to the top floor complimentary bar. This got every evening off on a great footing, with an array of wonderful snacks, good wine, casual music and incredible views. The room itself was pretty amazing and catered for our every whim. If you get an opportunity to book a room with access to the top floor bar, do so.
The ground floor bar also allowed for relaxation prior to a night out, however the breakfast area always appeared a bit to sterile for my liking (my only complaint about the whole hotel).
The staff are a real plus, always looking to make life easy. This was especially noticable in the way they can accomodate both private guests and mass airline staff bookings. We did unfortunately suffer a major oversight when we checked out, and the honesty of the staff was incredible, and again, a reflection of the true qualities of the hotel.
Location wise, we enjoy Fitzroy as a good place to eat, which is an easy walk from the hotel, as is downtown Melbourne.
We did not eat at the hotel aside from snacks in the top floor bar, however feedback from previous trips have advised the food is great.
