I have stayed at this hotel twice and will stay here again the next time. They provide consistent courteous service, clean rooms, nice food and amenities. The consistency is something I have come to like about Marriotts and affiliated hotels. Have stayed at other 5 star hotels and have not experienced the same consistency let that be service, cleanliness, quality of the food etc.
Location is not the best, but Melbourne city is flat and makes a good stroll anyway.
