I stayed at the Melbourne Marriott for a few days on a business trip and there were plenty of holidaymakers also enjoying the hotel. I would definitely recommend for either business or pleasure. I've stayed at dozens of Marriott hotels in the USA, and I can't remember staying at a better Marriott than this one in Melbourne. Overall it is very well maintained and still looking fresh, clean and classy. The food options in the hotel were fairly expensive, but there are plenty of decent restaurants within walking distance. Gym and other facilities are great. And, there is a taxi rank directly outside the hotel, so I never waited for a taxi once.
