The location is good - a little way out of the city but only takes 10-15mins to walk. Half of that can be via the City Circle tram (free) during operating hours if you so wish. Next to two beautiful parks that are always worth an explore. MCG is also worth a visit for a tour - good value, too.
Stayed in a basic twin room - it's ok but I think compared to others it could be regarded as average to poor value:
The good - nearly spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, nice silky sheets, blackout curtains, comfortable chairs, staff always friendly & ready to assist, the spa and pool area is a real bonus - and spotless
The not so good - TV is tiny, room decor is showing it's age - particularly the bathroom, shower arrangement not good and very fiddly to get a good temperature without covering the bathroom in water or getting soaked in cold water, air con unit reasonably loud and can be intrusive, having to pay for wi-fi in the room (21st century!). Also watch out for the double beds that are simply twins pushed together...!
Overall it is a good hotel albeit if you haven't got a deal staying here you would probably find staying elsewhere better value.
