This was a delightful three day stay. The room was lovely, the evening food on the executive level was good (I upgraded for $60/day for the privilege) and the people exceptionally friendly. Breakfast was typical continental and nothing special. Though a large hotel, the elevators were speedy. My room was right by the elevators but the noise was not a problem (you could only hear them from the bathroom-and only on occasion). I was on 24 (of 32) and rarely waited longer than a few seconds. I was pleased with check-in. I arrived at 11 am (3 hours before check-in) and was thrilled after 24+ hours of travel to have a room ready. It should be noted the hotel food is expensive but Melbourne is an expensive city. The bathroom was spacious with both a bath and shower and plenty of nice amenities beyond just soap and shampoo (including tooth brush, toothpaste, razor, shaving cream, etc.). The hotel is nicely located, being walking or trolley distance from lots of attractions. Try the free city line tram which tours around the perimeter of the city. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Melbourne.
