Looking for a great hotel to enjoy your 35th anniversary? And you want to use your free night at Accor Advantage club. Best you'll get in Melbourne is here. You'll have to walk to the Sofitel for dinner, you can't sleep there without paying another $260. So we arrive at the hotel and are given a ticket for "Make your own happy hour" at the Cocoon Bar... great, except they failed to mention the bar closes on Sunday nights. Hmmm. So we walked to 1806 on Exhibition Street for cocktails - much better. Room was curiously laid out, small bedroom, large office area, reasonable bath room, clean sheets. That's part of the tough order in trying to make an old building function as a modern hotel. Overall, no better than average.
