We have stayed at Mantra properties on regular occasions and always been really impressed. This place though, was awesome. From the location through the fantastic staff to the best happy hour in town we could not have been happier with our stay. The location so close to all the best of Melbourne is excellent. The staff are the best I have come across anywhere in the country and they go the extra mile for guests. Every time I saw them dealing with people they were respectful, well spoken and well presented. As for the happy hour, $5 crownies, house wines or house spirits, it is easily the best I have come across in Melbourne. Don't know if it was just for the weekend we stayed or all the time but 11 to 7 for a happy hour was generous. The room was amazing, 17th floor 1 bed apartment with balcony and very, very good value. We booked the winter deal off their website. The gym and pool are very clean, limited equipment but gets the job done. One gripe might be the 30 dollar per night parking rate but they don't own the car park and even with that included it is still the best value hotel we have stayed in in Melbourne. Others have complained about the noise, and yeah it's noiseyish but ear plugs drowned it all it and won't put us off staying here every time we come to Melbourne.
