“perfect choice in CBD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

My husband & I arrived at the Marriott for a two night stay at the end of August, after a late night flight from Brisbane. We were greeted by friendly reception staff who even offered us a complimentary glass of wine....lovely touch!!. We were also given the opportunity to upgrade our booked room to a Junior suite for a small extra fee. As we were in town for a birthday getaway we gladly agreed & were happy we did!. The room had a separate living room with a view of the street & theatre area, well equipped bathroom & sectioned off dressing area. The quality of the linen & towels were very good, the bed very comfortable, the decor tastefully done & the two large flatscreen tv's were a bonus. It was nice to be able to spread out in a hotel room for a change( even though admittedly we didn't spend a lot of time indoors as we lucked out with the Melbourne weather!) The concierge & doorman were always pleasant & helpful with directions & suggestions for daily activities, & the housekeeping was well maintained in all areas of the Hotel.
We actually initially found this Hotel as a mystery hotel but would not hesitate in rebooking on another trip to Melbourne.

Room Tip: worth the upgrade

We were greeted in a very warm, friendly and professional manner. We enjoyed the services of the Executive Lounge, the value for money was excellent! The room was very quiet, clean and comfortable with loads of space.

just been to Melbourne and stayed at the Marriott Hotel. Great location close to everything. Rooms where large and had a separate area where you could leave your suitcase out of the way from the bed area which I think is a bonus.

The staff, from the concierge to the front desk, to the banquet staff are amazing! The room service is of good quality, the rooms are comfortable and nice (newly updated a few years back), and the hotel is in one of the most convenient areas for shopping, eating, getting on the free or paid tram, and taking the subway. There are also tons of theaters in the area within walking distance as well. I used the fitness center in the mornings most days and was by myself each time, the hotel has an indoor pool next to it and all of the machines have individual tv's as well. I would recommend this property and wish I was still there as I spent a week! Also, Marriott rewards members get free wifi in the public and sleeping room space - a huge plus in my book!

We stayed at the Marriott for 2 nights with our family (2 adults/2 children) on our trip to Melbourne to see the Tutankhamen exhibit. The hotel is newly renovated and beautiful. Our room was on the 6th floor and immaculate. What really makes this hotel is the staff, they could not make you feel more welcome, special and nothing at all is a problem. We had the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on, they made you feel like you were floating in the sky. Our kids also loved the indoor pool, even though it was August, the pool was 35 degrees in the spa or 26 in the pool. We would definately stay here again on our next visit.

very nice room, great location(shopping and theater)...but the staff,while not rude - didn't seem to notice us at all - and we were there for 3 days. we didn't need them, as we have a friend in melbourne who showed us around - but I think they should at least say Hi to you when they see you several times. but great hotel!

First time here and what a pleasant surprise. The location, in the theatre district, is full of life and its only a short walk to shopping and a million restaurants. Quality, committed staff, an attractive and well maintained hotel (with terrific photos of Melbourne mid-20th century decorating both rooms and public areas) and good food. Only drawback is bathrooms that (unlike the bedrooms) need refurbishment. Will be back.
