“Good location in the center of Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The room with an extra bed was large and comfortable for a family stay.
All of downtown Melbourne beckons when you step out of the hotel.The bus stop for the free hop-on-hop-off bus is short 2 blocks from the hotel. The free tram ride around city has the nearest station at a 10-minute leisurely walk.
The service was at par with Marriott standards. The bellhops are efficient and the front desk staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: The room with an extra bed is very spacious.

So pleased you enjoyed your visit. Our hotel is very well located in the CBD and the free tram around the city is very handy for a lot of our 'leisure' guests. Our rooms with two double beds are a good configuration. Hope to have you and the family back.

Fantastically situated.

The reception staff are efficient and helpful. Check in was easy

The rooms are spotless and well equipped. Decent TV. Massive bathroom. Light and bright. Comfy bed with premier linen.

Excellent room service. Lovely staff. Breakfast had all the offerings.

Only 1 fault. We were on the floor 8. Even here we heard street noise.(partying drunks). It did not keep us awake but if were on thea lower level or lighter sleepers it could have. Surprised the rooms are not double glazed.

Great to hear you found the Melbourne Marriott well located and you enjoyed your room and breakfast and found the staff helpful. I was surprised to hear that you were aware of street noise in your room and apologise for the intrusion. All rooms at the front of the building (facing Exhibition Street) are double glazed and the rooms facing the pool area are not double glazed. They do open just a few inches as many guests like to have the option to let some fresh air in. I'm not sure what direction your room was facing on the 8th floor. We rarely receive feedback regarding external noise and can only imagine the people partying in the street must have been especially noisy. Please accept our apologies on this occasion. I do hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again.

Upon check in, which was quite early we were greeted and checked in promptly. Our room was ready at 10.30 a.m. and allowed to check in immediately. We were prepared to leave our bags and sight see until 2.00 pm. The rooms are quite large and as we were staying 5 days this was great. We were given some great recommendations for lunch nearby from the check in desk which proved to be excellent. (The restaurant was called Red Spice Road) and I suggest you order the Pork Belly.

The pool could do with a face lift, the gym is small but equipment is excellent. We were the only couple in the restaurant the night we dined and I thought our meal was ordinary. The steak I ordered was swimming in sauce, a little overdone (I'm not sure but It looked as though it had been precooked along with the thick cut chips as they tasted soggy and were limp, not crisp). We ordered in-room service which was faultless. The burger was great and the chips crunchy and perfect. Also desert was beautiful. So we were disappointed with our restaurant meal. I think this is our only negative.

All in all our stay was fantastic. The hotel is close to some fabulous restaurants and only a short walk to main shopping area of Melbourne. Would highly recommend it.

Thanks so much for your feedback on your recent stay with us. Delighted you enjoyed your visit. You'd be pleased to know that a refurbishment of our pool area is on our agenda. So sorry to hear of the disappointment with your meal in our restaurant. Please be assured this is not our usual standard. Thank goodness your meal via Room Service was well up to par! Look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back.

Stayed for a week, mainly for the Oz Open tennis, 23 - 30 Jan 2013.
Good value, well positioned, and well appointed hotel.
Friendly and efficient staff.
Visit Melbourne every year and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Top or upper floor. Bargain for a free or cheap upgrade. The usual!

My husband and I stayed at the Marriott for our wedding night, and we were so glad with the choice we made!

Our car pulled up at the hotel, and I was still in my wedding dress and had about 3 of hotel staff rush over and assist with our bags, making sure I was okay to get out of the car and personally escort us to reception desk to check in. The staff were all so genuine and thoughtful.

We received a lovely bottle of chilled champagne and some tasty sweets, a lovely touch which wasn't expected but very much appreciated.

Room was beautiful, spacious and very clean. Spa bath was nice and deep too!

Highly recommended to friends and family.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights during our visit to Melbourne over New Years. We were very impressed by the service that we received at the hotel even before we arrived. In the weeks leading up to our trip, I called the hotel on several occasions to ask various questions regarding restaurant recommendations, airport transportation, etc., and each person I spoke to by phone was more than willing to help with my many questions. When we arrived and checked in, the excellent service continued- we were greeted by curteous bell hops and concierge and even received a glass of champagne as we checked in. Throughout our stay, the employees continued to be helpful, positive, and friendly. The room we stayed in was very nice- typical Marriot, and the bed was SUPER comfortable. The bathroom could have used a more thorough cleaning, but it wasn't terrible. Another Marriot perk is the free wi-fi (just sign up to be a Marriot Rewards member). We also enjoyed the bar and happy hour area in the lobby- really good prices and nice atmosphere. Oh, and the location is perfect for tourists- we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend the hotel to others.
