Okay I acknowledge that this is a very old property that is in desperate need of demolition / refurbishment but it's age could be mitigated by above par service and attention to guest detail.
Sadly, everything from check-in to in-room dining and customer service is at best 3 star which only exacerbates the poor condition of the building fabric.
At check-in, did they manage to do anything well? Afraid not. In-room dining? About the standard of a roadside diner. Care and attention in room design to guest comfort? Sadly non-existent. In-room TV choice? Could do better on my mobile.
If there are 25 x 4 star plus hotels in the City of Melbourne for an executive to choose from, I challenge the other 24 to compete for last spot because this hotel's strongest point is that is hands down the worst hotel I have had the displeasure to stay in for a long time. And that is based on 30+ days in executive hotels on average each year.
If you are going to a game at the MCG then I can see the logic in looking at this hotel as an option but to be honest Melbourne has a great public transport system so for a small outlay you could end us staying in a vastly superior hotel a bit further away.
Stay here and prepare to be disappointed.
