“A Breath of Fresh Air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is exactly what a hotel should be. It is luxurious without being over the top. The service cannot be faulted. The location is wonderful. And the views of beautiful green parkland is a welcome change from the views of other buidlings we found in most hotels in large cities.
The best part - the feeling you get when you stay there!! It's relaxing. The staff are wonderful but they don't smother you with attention. When you want something they get onto it quickly, professionally and without fuss. If you want to be left alone to relax and unwind, they respect that too.

Very quiet, didn't need car to get to all tourist areas of the city. Within reach of Bridge Rd, and CBD. A very relaxing and friendly atmosphere in the bar area, where we were welcomed by all the staff, it was intimate even tho there were groups of people enjoying themselves.

Grand final weekend!
Breakfast very ordinary some staff very good but sadly most staff unfriendly & unhelpful.
Breakfast finished at 10am so others in our group missed out. 10am a joke!
Bars shut early so no chance to sit and relax when arrive home from a night out - did get offered to be served in an awful room beside reception.
Not many redeeming features - won't be back - sorry

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Came here for 4 nights over the October long weekend.

Hotel location is OK on the CBD fringe, with Spring Street an easy walk across lovely Fitzroy Gardens.

A quite old style building with an almost cavernous lobby. Rooms are OK; pleasant enough and average size. However decor is starting to look tired, the bathroom vanity has chips, TVs are old technology, etc. Executive lounge has a pleasant view but the evening canapes and wine selection are not top notch.

Would recommend cautiously although I feel it is expensive for what you get. In my opinion the Hilton South Wharf is better value for money,

Room Tip: Do you prefer the MCG or Fitzroy?

spent a week for professional reasons there; good Hilton service and a especially appreciated the 17.18th floor executive privacy. At the end of the week I learned that this hotel is best situated for all those who want to attend the Australian football finals, it is just over the street.

Room Tip: 18th floor executive area

This hotel was clean and quiet. The exercise room was clean and the equipment was cleaned of the unpleasantness you often find on exercise equipment in other hotels. The hotel is nicely appointed. There are few dinner restaurants in walking distance, but there is a very fine boulangerie on the next corner. It is one train stop from Flinders St Station, and thus there is train access to all train lines. The only drawback to this hotel is that they charge for in-room wifi. It is free in the lobby, so many guests go there.

Was great to be able to walk across to our concert and back with ease. As suggested prior maybe a discounted rate for concert goers would be helpful. $250.00+ is a lot and not doable for many. Other wise a great stay.
