Don't get me wrong, the room is beautiful and comfy. You get a fridge, a boiler with tea and coffee, a safe, a pretty good sized room and a GREAT location (20 min walk to CBD and Bitanic Garden, 5 min walk to Fitzroy Garden, 10 min walk to MCG and about 25 min to St Paul's Cathedral)
I don't know though what it is with hotel rooms in Australia and elevators!! My room was a good 5-6 rooms away from the elevators and I could still hear it as though I was next to it. It sounded as though there was a subway station 2-3 floors underneath my room. The same thing happened in Brisbane....
The other thing I didn't like was the shower faucet. To turn the shower on, you had to turn a knob on the faucet. The problem was when u did that, the whole faucet turned makung it very hard to turn the shower on or off. You can surely understand the problem if the person who took their shower last, turned off the water BEFORE they did the shower...
Last tidbit of info: a cab from the airport cost me 65$ and to the airport 69$. You might me better off reserving a shuttle
